“Hi-Rez Studios is committed to delivering the best value in PC gaming”, said Todd Harris, Global Agenda Executive Producer. “In addition to all of the game’s initial launch content, we are bundling nearly 6 months worth of post-release content and features and including that within the single-purchase game. One purchase of Global Agenda let’s you experience this content forever with no subscription.”

Global Agenda is a massively-multiplayer online third-person shooter video game from Hi-Rez Studios in Atlanta. Built using the Unreal Engine 3, it went live on February 1, 2010. The game allows players to create and customize multiple agent characters, complementing FPS skills with accessable RPG-style progression. Players can co-op with friends online, compete fast-paced multiplayer matches, and conquer persistent territory with player-formed groups called agencies.

The large summer expansion, titled Sandstorm, was unveiled at E3 two weeks ago. Sandstorm adds weapon variation and loot, bigger badder, and dear we say epic weapons across every class and a brand new Open Zone area complete with quests and new missions. However, according to developers, you will have to grind to receive these new epic weapons. The first phase of Sandstorm was released in early June 2010, with the remaining phase to be released later this summer.
