Nexon unveils plans to merge European and North American communities for free-to-play FPS
Nexon Europe and Nexon America today announced they will join forces, beginning Tuesday, 30th June, to merge their services for the award-winning Combat Arms, the free-to-play military first-person shooter. The merge brings together the best features of the European and North American services to enhance the game experience for all players, as well as expand the Combat Arms community across multiple regions to more fully engage players of every skill level. This is in line with Nexon’s overall global strategy to improve player conditions for both its launched and upcoming games.
“The decision to bring together the European and North American serviced territories was driven by our desire to best serve the dedicated Combat Arms community” said Rob Noble, representative of Nexon Europe. “From 30th of June, all players will immediately begin to reap the benefits of a unified service – more competition, more matchups, and more intensity.”
This merged service will encompass Europe, North America and Oceania, and will be run by Nexon Europe. The combined service will allow players in each of these regions to compete against each other in the fast-paced, multiplayer Combat Arms, maximising and unifying the community. With over 7 million European and 6 million North American registered accounts, this will take the combined service to over 13 Million.
There will be no interruption of service for current players of Combat Arms in the merged regions, and players will be able to log onto the game as before, through the Nexon launcher and their Nexon accounts, which will not be altered. Additionally, Nexon Europe will be running servers in North America to ensure gameplay continues to run smoothly. All user account functionality, including friends’ lists, clan lists and in-game note histories will be retained.
To celebrate the service migration, Nexon Europe has revealed that a whole host of special events will be taking place, in which players can get their hands on a variety of in-game rewards and prizes.
