Be Broadband Targets Gamers With FPS Game
Be Broadband, the UK’s fastest ADSL broadband supplier, has developed a first person shooter (FPS) game to promote its broadband services to gamers.
The ISP has joined forces with interactive design agency ‘magneticNorth’ to create an FPS game called “Unreal Call of Brothers 5: The Road to Broadband Heaven” – which is basically a tongue in cheek reference to other popular shooter games.
In the game players are part of a genetically different, elite team that have to destroy 3 enemy locations. Once they have destroyed the locations they are allowed entry into Broadband Heaven.
Along the way players have to be careful of broadband lag while shooting Be Ping Power-Ups in order to increase their connection speed. When a player shoots an enemy, points are earned and bonuses are gained. This then helps them to progress into Broadband Heaven.
Be Broadband is already a popular ISP choice for gamers and it is hoped that the new game will enhance its broadband sales further.
The game may not be serious and complicated, but it certainly helps to pass a few minutes while you have fun shooting the enemies and avoiding broadband lag.
Be Broadband are currently offering 3 months free broadband on their 24Mb Unlimited and Pro packages which provide speeds up to 24Mb. Orders must be made online at the Be website using the promo code ‘3MONTHSFREE’ by the 31st May 2009.
