S4 League’s Second Season Armors Up with New Weapons, Costumes, Maps, and Siege Mode

MUNICH - July 14, 2011

alaplaya, the leading international free-to-play gaming portal, today revealed that a new expansion is coming to hit its online third-person shooter S4 League later this month. The new season, entitled “Iron Eyes,” will be the second installment in a series of major updates to the action-packed title, and will feature a new game mode, maps, weapons, and costumes. Players who want to test their mettle against all that Iron Eyes has in store don’t have long to wait, as S4 League: Season 2 will be available for users worldwide to try at the end of July!

Set on top of iron pillars in the sky, the new “Skyline” map will introduce players to some truly dangerous aerial gunplay. With designated jump points throughout the map, players will be challenged to effectively use their surroundings to take out opponents both in the air and on the ground. Players who aren’t a fan of heights will have the alternative option of playing on “Ironheart,” a new sphere-shaped map wrought out of cold iron. They’ll need to be cautious of their surroundings in this metallic maze, however, as this map also houses unstable nuclear reactions that can pack a real punch.

In addition to the maps, a new game mode called “Siege” will also be included in the Season 2 update. In Siege mode, players will have the opportunity to experience even more all-out team warfare as they work together to capture the enemy's base. With the goal objective of obtaining points from 200 to 400, players can acquire scores by capturing the enemies’ base, killing enemies or healing their allies.

If those updates weren’t enough, new costumes, such as the Royal and Imperial Guard Set, and weapons, such as the turret, assault rifle, and the guillotine counter sword, will also be added to the weapon cache.

Finally, in anticipation of the new season, alaplaya today released a brand-new Iron Eyes trailer which can be viewed online here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghjnVRAMPAI
