  Share on Twitter Share on Facebook RSS

[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

NGames, a leading online publisher, is proud to announce that "Chapter 2", the latest expansion to aerial-combat based MMORPG, Boomsky, is landing today, February 1st.

All aboard and prepare for take-off! BoomSky, a strategy-based multiplayer browser game that transports players to the cockpits of customizable fighter planes as they tear across the sky on adrenaline-fuelled adventures, is preparing for its massive Chapter 2 expansion. Arriving on February 1st, Chapter 2 brings intense Legion Battles and many new events soaring into the aerial-combat MMORPG.

Legion Battles allow players to team up with fellow Legion members, battling others to grow the legion and earn medals. Every victory in Legion Battle earns a team Growth Points, and every loss docks points, meaning strong communication and a well drilled team are vital for legions wanting to own the skies.

Chapter 2 is launching with four new events, all of which run from 08:30 Jan 31st – 23:59 Feb 3rd (GMT -6):

Top Up Event

Players topping up on Star Coins will be in line to receive some fantastic rewards, including Enhancement Crystals and Star Debris, depending on the amount topped up. Star Debris can be synthesised into powerful Star items.

Crazy Shopping Event

Players will receive Lucky Tokens and maybe even Star Debris, depending on how many Star Coins they spend in the shop.

Warplane Enhancement Event

During the event, enhance any warplane part to a specific level to receive lush in-game rewards.

Double EXP Event

To celebrate the new expansion pack, all players will receive 3 days of double EXP.

Whether joining a legion or choosing to adventure alone, BoomSky offers budding pilots the chance to become a true Flying Legend.


BoomSky features colourful anime graphics, exciting backdrops and a raft of fascinating content across multiple modes of play. The games keyboard controlled air battles throw off the shackles of mouse-only browser-based gaming, lending the gameplay experience an old school flavour with a fresh graphical twist.

Interested players can sign up for free at the official BoomSky website now:
