ATLANTA - Hi-Rez Studios introduced that their Recursive Colony expansion for Global Agenda is going to be made available during the beginning of Fall and shall be open to all players without any cost. Version 1.5 is definitely the biggest content update ever from Global Agenda.

Global Agenda, the top rated squad-based shooter MMO, is the very 1st free-to-play game from the Steam platform and also has gained several content updates since its launch. However the forthcoming Recursive Colony expansion is substantial for the reason that it presents a spanking new Open Zone, the earliest add-on feature since the Sandstorm expansion from the previous summer.

“Players seeking a quest-driven, narrative experience post level 20 can now level-up in the new Open Zone as an alternative to, or in addition to, our instanced missions”, says Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios COO. “We’ve also included a new set of instanced PvE and PvP content for players at all levels.”

Version 1.5 is designed all around the Recursive Colony - an automated, hive-mind faction of bots making bots and trespassing on the player social center of Dome City.

Notable expansion additions include:

· New Open Zone with several instanced missions, quest chains, mid-high level content, vendors, social spaces
· New enemy bots - encountered within Open Zone as well as instanced missions
· Daily Repeatable Quests - for solo agents and teams. Some quests take place in zones, while others send teams into Recursive Colony hive nodes and ruins. These quests include new 4-man defense Raid missions - now available to smaller groups (1-4) at lower levels (20+)
· New Dyes, Flair, and Trails - rewards for winning missions, completing daily quests, rare bot drops, others given via achievements
· New Pets - new pets available as rewards and crafted items.
· New Blueprints - for consumables and mods
· Easier crafting - components now within the zone, to help with leveling crafting skills
· New High/Max/UltraMax missions entering the Spec Ops queues
· New PvP Map - Push Dust will be entering the Merc queue from Beta
· New PvP Acquisition/CTR Map - Colony Caverns will be entering the Beta Queue
· Revamped Intro Missions - Tutorials now include class-specific elements to help train new players
· Some quests now affect the state of the world (example - Brownouts in Dome City...)
· Ability to transfer between different Open Zone instances (and VR Arena)
· Open Zone cross-instance chat channels
· Disconnect to Character Select Screen without re-login
· Improved Vendor Item Previewing
