Los Angeles and Chiang Mai, Thailand - June 1, 2012 - Planet Cyrene, the
real cash economy massively multiplayer online first-person shooter (MMOFPS)
from Creative Kingdom Inc., is putting players' skills to the test starting
today with its official launch. Every bullet fired, every death and every
respawn will have a direct impact, positive or negative, on players' wallets as
Planet Cyrene's virtual currency has real-world value. Anyone can register to

Planet Cyrene is the newest planet in Mindark's Entropia Universe system, and
features a rich world powered by CryENGINE?2 technology to create luscious
environments, which range from cityscapes to jungles to barren desert
wastelands. Entropia Universe is the leading platform for microtransaction-driven
3-D virtual worlds and MMO games,and the system generates more than $400 million
per year in user-to-user transactions, according to Mindark.
Unique to Planet Cyrene are deadly player-versus-player (PvP) arenas where
gamers engage in mortal combat with each other. The entry fees for the
battlegrounds range from 2.5 cents to $1 worth of in-game currency. Once inside,
skillful combatants can reap financial rewards from the arena, as each kill nets
between 2 cents to 80 cents. With real money on the line for every death and
every kill, patience, calculation and skill become more valuable than bravado.
"The new PvP arenas in Planet Cyrene constitute the most revolutionary update to
Entropia Universe yet," said Ed Robles III, creative director on Planet Cyrene.
"It's a completely new way for players to make money in the best way possible -
using their FPS skills to dominate the battlefield. We're mindful of all skill
levels though, so we also included a great deal of player-versus environment
content where players can find gear, craft trade goods and turn a profit on the
in-game auction house."
Planet Cyrene is a lush world where a conflict rages between its inhabitants and
the Imperium galactic forces. Over the course of an intricate story arc, players
unravel the mysteries of Cyrene and come to understand the battle being waged
for its resources. Additionally, dynamic gameplay content changes the face of
the game to keep things fresh. For example, well-trafficked quest hubs will grow
in size and its merchants will offer better gear, while neglected outposts will
get overrun and could eventually vanish. This organic content will help shape
the story and simultaneously unlock additional items and quests.
