A few months ago I posted on Wrecks about a free to download PC game that I thought should be really fun to play, which is of course “Spiral Knights”.
Once it was released I heard many people went to download it including myself, and when I started up the game I knew it was going to enjoyable. Now just three months in since it was out, Spiral Knights has become very, very popular with it now being available on Steam to download and that it also has reached over one million players worldwide which is a fantastic achievement for the awesome MMO.
A Press Release from SEGA tells us how they feel about achieving this great milestone:
LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO 6th July, 2011 SEGA® Europe, Ltd. and SEGA® of America, Inc. today announced that Spiral Knights, a free-to-play adventure with fast-paced, retro-inspired action, has grown to one million player accounts worldwide. Spiral Knights joined the Steam distribution service in early June after the official launch in April of this year. To celebrate this milestone, SEGA and Three Rings have also announced a new batch of content being added today, available for free to the many, many Spiral Knights players around the globe.
So many people came together to make this achievement possible from Three Rings incredible team to our partners at Steam and, of course, the million players who have joined the game thus far, said Haruki Satomi, Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA of America. We look forward to welcoming even more new players in the coming months as we continue to expand and enrich the world of Spiral Knights.
During development, we hoped Spiral Knights classic action, handcrafted art, and co-operative nature would appeal to gamers of all stripes, and reaching this milestone is confirmation of our vision for the game, said Daniel James, CEO of Three Rings. Seeing a million eager knights forging ahead into the Clockworks, building guilds and our game community, is gratifying for our entire team. As seen in recent content updates like the Ironclaw Munitions Factory and the Gloaming Wildwoods, we are more determined than ever to continue expanding and adding to the Clockworks for our fans.
Starting today, Spiral Knights daring adventurers can also explore the Ironclaw Munitions Factory, a new dungeon located deep within the Clockworks. Intel from Spiral HQ has confirmed that gremlin engineers have banded together to develop a weapon of incredible power, known only as Project Roarmulus. Spiral Knights will have to survive a harrowing trip through the complex destructive devices if they want to put an end to the project, but fortunately there are a number of new weapons, including the Polaris and Supernova guns, to help them succeed!
