Wicked Interactive has announced that the popular, free-to-play, online first-person shooter Mission Against Terror (M.A.T.) will begin closed beta on September 3rd. Wicked Interactive’s SUBA Games platform will be hosting M.A.T., and the closed beta allows gamers to be the first in North America to experience this exciting new title. Gamers can get a head start before closed beta by visiting the title’s SUBA Games page to obtain a beta key.
Once players have registered with the key on the M.A.T. home page, they can download the game client and start playing immediately. Just like M.A.T. will be upon its full release, the closed beta is totally free for players to participate in, for as long as the beta lasts. Space is limited, so gamers should get their beta key today, and stay tuned for further announcements about special closed beta events and fun achievements.
“We are delighted to be bringing M.A.T. to North American players,” said Sam Ho, Director of Wicked Interactive. “The closed beta should provide a great sneak preview for veterans and new FPS players. With various game modes and state-of-the-art Dolby™ 3D sound support , we are certain that M.A.T. will prove to be a ton of fun for all players.”
M.A.T. is set in a fictional time not far from our own, pitting two teams against each other all around the world. From the male civilian with a vengeance to a war-torn female soldier with something to prove, characters from all walks of life come together to fight for a common goal.
Gamers looking for a serious shooter will be glad to know that M.A.T. was the only first-person shooter game good enough to be sanctioned for tournament play in 2009 by the China Electrical Gaming Committee, a nationwide online gaming tournament organizer that is part of the All-China Sports Federation. The M.A.T. closed beta release will include game modes such as Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch, along with the tried-and-true formula of elimination-style Tournament play and the highly popular Bombing mode.
Those in the mood for a less competitive-minded shooter will be kept busy as well, with a variety of wild, white-knuckled game types. Mummy mode offers an intense survival horror experience, where a team of humans are confronted by ancient Egyptian mummies who have risen from the dead in search of you-know-what.
Complementing the exciting action of MAT are customizable characters that can be outfitted with a variety of clothing options, an item shop that contains everything a soldier needs out in the battlefield, and full Dolby™ 3D sound support, including state-of-the-art Dolby Axon™ technology which enables you to modulate your voice in real-time to change the way other players hear you-all in glorious surround-sound.
