    More Than 25,000 Players have Joined the Cross Fire Community At Cross Fire - Free Online Military FPS in the First Two Weeks of Open Beta


    Toronto, CANADA--February 18, 2009-- G4BOX Inc and Wicked Interactive Ltd., North American publishers and distributors of interactive entertainment media, together announced today the tremendous success
    and popularity of the open beta for their military first-person shooter, Cross Fire. The beta, which began on Friday, January 30, 2009, has since gathered more than 25 000 registered players and made
    a major splash in the online first-person shooter scene. Cross Fire will continue in Open Beta through February.

    "We knew there was an audience out there that was really anticipating Cross Fire, so we expected a good result," said Garvin Yeung, Chief Executive Officer of Wicked Interactive. "But even we are amazed by
    the overwhelming response that Cross Fire has garnered thus far," added Howard He, Chief Executive Officer of G4BOX."

    The open beta launch marked the beginning of Cross Fire's persistent military-ranking and stat-tracking features. Player-progress will be tracked from the open beta onward so that players may accurately gauge their skills against the rest of the Cross Fire community. The Open Beta also introduced a clan system into the game, allowing players to band together into persistent teams. This feature is supported by a unified Subagames clan page, which maintains rankings of all clans across the Subagames library of free MMOs. The Cross Fire open beta also introduced in-game friend lists, in addition to a variety of new maps, weapons, and items.

    The game isn't that good, in my opinion it's even worse than Soldier Front, and I've already come across a bunch of hackers...

    No hackers, lol. Just skilled players. You can tell when someone is hacking in this game. The community is horrid, but the only hackers out there are speed and god mode hackers.

    Yes, that's why it's so annoying, I go to join a game and see someone that's 74~0, and I'm just like "What the heck, scr3w this, I'm going to play CS."
