    Cool Calling all Gamers! - Play games and play a part securing a Guinness World Record

    Hi All,



    I have received a communication today and I think that some of you on here might be interested in taking part if you have some free time on Friday! :-)

    Game studio Illyriad, powered by Windows Azure, are mounting an attempt on the existing Guinness World Record for the Largest Videogame Player vs Player (PvP) Battle on Friday March 14th. The attempt will be part of the public Alpha test of their exciting new space based resource and battle game, Age of Ascent.

    The attempt on the Guinness World Record is being made jointly by Illyriad and Microsoft. All you need to do is go online via any of the modern browsers (IE11, etc.) and play your part in making some gaming history! You do not need to download anything, register for anything or install anything. Friction free gaming!

    To get a taste of what to expect from the heart-pounding gameplay, visit: Age of Ascent to view the latest in-game footage

    Sign up now and join the battle tomorrow, 14th March at 6pm

    What next?

    Step One: Visit Age of Ascent now and bookmark the page
    Step Two: Join us from 6pm GMT / 2pm Eastern Time / 11am Pacific Time, on March 14th and go to the website
    Step Three: Join the Red or Blue team
    Step Four: Play the game!
    Step Five: Tweet about it whilst you are playing. We’d love to see all that you have to say. Use #ageofascent

    If you have any questions, be sure to let me know! :-) see you there!

    James.

    If this is anything like the Eve one was, it would be horribly buggy and just awful!

    Oh well, might be worth looking at anyway. It looks pretty if nothing else!
