On June 27, it'll be three years since Funcom launched Anarchy Online and invited online gamers to breathe life into the planet of Rubi-Ka. To celebrate the game's third anniversary, Funcom will be initiating a number of in-game events, including parties and giveaways with prizes from Alienware and ATI.
"Anarchy Online is a groundbreaking game in every sense of the word," said Trond Arne Aas, CEO at Funcom. "Not only were we the first sci-fi MMORPG on the market, we have also been at the very forefront of MMOG design, graphics, audio, customer service, community and distribution solutions. Seeing the achievements and improvements Anarchy Online has gone through, it's safe to say that our game has contributed a lot to the genre as a whole."
In addition to the in-game events for existing players, Funcom is offering special subscription deals to new players. For just $9.95 or 9.95 euros, players will be able to purchase the deluxe version of Anarchy Online and play the game for free until September 1--the release date for the Alien Invasion expansion pack. All Anarchy Online players also have the option to purchase last year's Shadowlands expansion pack for just $9.95 or 9.95 euros, while existing and active subscribers will receive complimentary 30-day game keys.
