London: November 30, 2012 – Square Enix and Bigpoint are happy to announce that the new Mercenaries theme is now available for Gameglobe .

The Mercenaries theme is fully loaded with new enemies, buildings, weapons and hazards including barbed wire, machetes, explosives and shotguns. It even has an 8-barreled minigun!  Everything you need to make a game with real firepower!

“Gameglobe’s new Mercenaries theme is the first content that really changes the look and feel of the game and it’s always exciting to wake up and see how creative the community have been with the new props” said Rune Vendler, Game Director.


Gameglobe has all kinds of easy-to-use tools, props and effects for you to build your dream game, there are even tutorials if you need them.
