AQ Worlds Shares the Wealth for the Holidays
Artix Entertainment, the indie game development studio that creates and publishes download-free, browser-based games played by over 130 million registered players, announced this week it will be giving away 200 AdventureCoins (ACs) to each of its 27.8 million registered AdventureQuest Worlds MMORPG players.
AdventureQuest Worlds is a F2P, browser-based, massively multiplayer role playing game. It has two in-game currencies: gold which is obtainable by completing quests and killing monsters, and AdventureCoins which are purchased using real world currency or earned by completing third party offers and watching advertisements. Several times a year, AE also holds contests where players enter to win AdventureCoins.
This is the first time in the nine-year history of the company that AE is giving away ACs to every one of its 27,800,000 AQWorlds players, a gift worth $27,800,000~
ACs are used in-game to purchase rare armors, weapons, pets, helms, capes, and house items. Most AC items are only available for a few weeks before they are permanently removed from the in-game shops, making many items extremely rare and highly coveted. 200 ACs is enough to purchase one rare item with Coins left over.
This Friday will be the start of AdventureQuest Worlds' new winter holiday event, Frostval: Song of the Frozen Heart. Players will be able to battle ice-themed monsters, loot epic gear, and they'll even have a chance to use their gift ACs in the limited time rare shop.
The AC gift will be for all players of all levels, so if you don't have an AQWorlds account yet, be sure to make one before the AC gifts are given out on December 16th!
