IMPORTANT LAUNCH AND PRE-ORDER DETAILS

On January 28 – 31, Global Agenda will hold its Early Start and Name Reserve Event.

Key things to remember:

1) BE SURE TO DOWNLOAD THE GLOBAL AGENDA LIVE GAME AND ACTIVATE YOUR LIVE KEY ONCE IT BECOMES AVAILABLE (CURRENTLY EXPECTED TO BE JANUARY 28 — WATCH GASERVERSTATUS ON TWITTER FOR MORE EXACT TIMING AS DATE NEARS).

2) All Characters will be wiped prior to the Name Reserve and Quick Start event. You do not keep your characters from Beta.

3) Players will have the opportunity to keep their player name from beta, if they follow the steps below prior to February 1.

4) You may use the EARLY START EVENT ON JANUARY 29 THROUGH 31 to Level new characters up to LEVEL 10 prior to the GO LIVE date. Once you reach LEVEL 10, no queues will be active for you until the launch date.

5) Use the Early Start event to form your agency.

6) All players will be able to enjoy the Global Agenda: Conquest features free until MARCH 3, 2010. At that point, you must pay to play the Conquest portions of the game (regardless of when you purchase the game). Remember that the non-Conquest features are free-to-play after your initial purchase. A description of what features are in Conquest is available here.

7) Players that ordered on Steam need to link their LIVE ACCOUNT on the Global Agenda website prior to end of day JANUARY 31 in order to receive the No Elves Flair and Commonwealth Helmet. Your flair will be in your in-game mailbox once you create a character (go to the SHIPPING AND RECEIVING area of Dome City to claim on Launch Day).

Here are more details:

CONQUEST AVAILABILITY

Global Agenda Conquest functionality will be available to all players that have purchased or pre-purchased the game until MARCH 3, 2010. At this time, a subscription will be required to play Global Agenda Conquest, regardless of when the game is purchased (for instance: purchase the game on March 1 and get 2 days of Conquest free, purchase it prior to February 1 and get 30 days of Conquest free).

RESERVE YOUR NAME

All players that pre-purchased the game will have first stab at keeping their current name from beta, or choosing a new one. In order to keep your current name or claim another name, follow these steps:

1) Starting on January 28 (specific time TBA), the GLOBAL AGENDA LIVE game will become active on Steam for those players that pre-purchased Global Agenda (this is separate from the GLOBAL AGENDA – BETA game you would have already installed).

2) Once the game is active on Steam, you may install it. Following installation, you will be prompted to activate the game on the Global Agenda website. Follow the prompts. After you link your “Live Key” to your Global Agenda account, you will be prompted to claim your name. Current Beta players will have the option to keep their current name or choose a new name.

3) If you miss the prompt following installation, you may activate your “Live Key” by simply right clicking on the Global Agenda Live game in Steam and selecting MANAGE GAME ACCOUNT. After you choose this, you will be directed to the Global Agenda website. Follow the prompts. REMEMBER: YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DO THIS UNTIL THE LIVE GAME UNLOCKS ON STEAM ON JANUARY 28 (TIME TBA).

4) If you were the owner of an Agency in the Beta, you will automatically be assigned to an Agency of that name in the Live game (as long as you link Live key by Feb. 1), but you will be the only player associated with that Agency. If you wish to keep the Agency, simply do so and start inviting people to it. If you wish to disband the Agency, you may, and then create another.

3) Play limited PvE and PvP content up until LEVEL 10. Once you reach LEVEL 10, no queues will be active.
