Have you ever thought of what would it be like if a MMO third person shooter (TPS) game is given the MMORPG treatment? If you have, well, you can experience it for yourself in this unique free-to-play MMOTPS/RPG game, Global Agenda: Free Agent! In this game, you assume the role of an elite special agent who was rescued from the clutches of the evil Commonwealth. Being an escaped asset of the Commonwealth, you are being pursued until you've find a safe haven called the Dome and signed up to join the resistance force that is fighting the Commonwealth, Allied Revolutionary Militia (ARM). However, to be strong enough to battle enemy agents and robots for survival, technology and territory, you’ll need to acquire futuristic gear and weaponry as well as improve your skills by leveling up and participating in PvE and PvP. Interested, agent? You can sign up now to fight against the Commonwealth in Global Agenda: Free Agent today!
2155. From the ashes of the devastating Third Great War rose the Commonwealth, an oppressive world government determined to control the entire planet. The few remaining independent factions retaliate the only way they can, with elite teams of special operatives trained in advanced warfare tactics and equipped with high-tech weaponry. The future of humanity is their battleground, where knowledge is power, technology is a race, and everyone has a global agenda!
The game starts off by allowing you to create your very own agent characters. Choose 1 from the 4 character classes available, namely robotics, medic, recon and assault. These classes somewhat mimics the classes in a MMORPG. For instance, medic is mainly the healer class who deals poison damage while assault is the tanker class who can take tons of damage due to his personal shields (or similarly to the warrior class in normal MMOs, assault can also be a DPS class). Recons are very much like the rogue/ assassins that MMORPGs contain since they possess the ability to stealth and they can double as snipers. Robotics, on the other hand, is like the engineer class in MMORPGs whereby they tend to rely on robotic “pets”, like turrets, drones and other amazing gadgets (like force shield). Each character will also have their respective class specific weapons and other equipment that they can use., thus class selection is pretty important in this game.
However, if you can’t make up your mind, don’t fret too much over your choice - Global Agenda: Free Agent allows free-to-play players to create more than 1 character and you can easily create a new character for each of the classes if you wish so later on! Don’t forget to customize your character by choosing a preset appearance and then editing it. After you’re done, you’re ready to start your journey as an agent!
The controls in Global Agenda: Free Agent is similar to any shooter or RPG games. You’ll be using the WASD to move spacebar to jump and the “U” key to interact with anyone or thing in the game. As the game provides 2 types of weapons for each class - a melee and a ranged weapon, the combat controls differ a bit slightly between those 2. In melee, you can attack using the left mouse button (same as you use your gun to shoot in ranged), but the right mouse button will make your character to assume a defensive “blocking” position that will help you to deflect enemy blows, instead of well, scoping. Attacks from large robots cannot be blocked though.
Furthermore, shooting consumes power and will drain your power bar while melee is cost-free. Thus, whenever you ran out of power, switch to melee and start hacking away! The power bar on the other hand will regenerate by itself over time. Unlike other MMO shooters, you don’t need to reload in this game. Attacking from behind also gives you a nice bonus damage but a headshot doesn't do what you’d expect – no instant kills or even higher damage inflicted. You can use the other devices as well as grenades, mines and injectors by pressing the corresponding number key. Your character can crouch using the left shift key too!
If you’re injured and that you’re not the medic class, how is it possible to regain your health? Thankfully, the game provides you with a nifty R.E.S.T. device that will help you do just that! However, using REST will stop the regeneration of your power and slow you down, thus, it’s best to use REST when you’re certain that you’re safe from danger... such as while you’re taking cover behind some rock. If your character somehow died (this will happen fairly often at the beginning), the game does not impose any sort of penalty on your character, except that your character will be respawned rather quickly at the nearest “graveyard”, safe locations like a town or a building with friendly NPCs or anywhere that has a save point.
In terms of looting in MMOs, the game does not allow it. Instead, you’ll automatically be given a certain amount of credits (in-game currency) for every kill you make along with some experience points. To get gear/ equipments, you’ll need to accumulate enough credits to buy them from shops. Once you’ve collected enough experience points, your character will elvel up. Every level up after level 5 (and the tutorial) will provide you with 1 skill point which you can then invest in your skill tree. Each class has their own respective skill trees but they generally have 3 paths – balanced (which is filled with utility skills and stats... usually passive ones), melee-oriented path and ranged-oriented path. For example, for assault, the melee-oriented path is the path you will want to take if you want to be a tank while the ranged path is for those DPS assaults. Depending on your play style and which role you would like to take, the skill path you choose will be different.
The best part in Global Agenda: Free Agent is that your character has his/her own jetpack to fly. Flying is quite an integral part of the game, especially if you don’t fancy taking on huge amounts of damage or if you plan to do any of the assignments. With jetpacks, you can cross chasms, get out from craters that you’ve dropped into, cover ground faster for a melee attack as well as position your character at a higher ground so you can easily pick off enemies below before dropping down into a hazardous area. To fly, you just need to press and hold the spacebar, but jetpack usage will drain your power bar. Also bear in mind that when you land, you should be as close to the ground as possible since your character is subjected to any fall damage while landing.
Similarly to MMORPGs, the main way to level your character in Global Agenda: Free Agent is by doing quests... or as the game calls it “assignments”. There are generally 2 types of assignments – storyline-based and repeatable, and they mainly involve killing X number of enemies, collect X number of assignment items, and so on. The game also provides a nice quest tracker system that presents all the indicators of the assignment locations on your map as well as its general direction and distance on your radar-like minimap.
Moreover, like any MMORPGs, Global Agenda: Free Agent also provides both PvE and PvP content via its mission-types interface. For PvE, there are the special ops. They are somewhat like dungeons that you can try clearing by yourself or in a team of 4 players. In special ops, you’ll need to progress through a Commonwealth facility and defeat a boss within the time limit imposed. The longer you take to clear the ops, the less loot you’ll earn. There are also open zones that you can explore that are filled with assignments that you can take as well.
To play PvP, you’ll need to reach level 10 before you can queue for one. In PvP, 2 teams of 10 agents will go head-to-head to complete objective-based goals, such as capture an important location, in order to achieve victory for their team. There’s also a practice PvP area, called the Dome Arena, whereby players can fight against each other without affecting their PvP ranks. However, this also means that players participating in the Dome Arena will not earn any credits or experience points even if they win.
The game even has an auction house for you to trade crafting items and pets... yes, you did not heard wrongly – you can collect adorable robotic pets in Global Agenda: Free Agent too! If you would like to buy experience points boost or any other boosters and special or rare items, you can exchange your real money with the premium currency (agent points) to buy them.
The community in Global Agenda: Free Agent is getting lower it seems and in order to get into special ops in a group or finding a PvP match (especially if you’re below level 30), you will need to get friends to play the game with you or you’ll be waiting for a very long time. There are a sizable number of “vets” of the game, the players who stuck with the game for a very long time and know the game like the back of their hand, and they tend to group together into the handful active agencies (a.k.a. guilds/ clans). To have any sort of social interaction, it’s best to sign up for one of these active agencies as soon as you can. Not to mention, if you’re lucky, you and your agency may be able to fight with other agencies to wrestle the control of limited land resources and earn special rewards!
There hasn’t been an update for quite some time now (4 years) due to the developers abandoning the game in favor of SMITE. You may want to keep that in mind when you try the game out for yourself!
The graphics in Global Agenda: Free Agent is pretty good, considering that this is a free-to-play game that was released in 2010. The visuals may not be as high resolution as recent games, but it is perhaps better than certain MMOs. In terms of music, the game contains plenty of various soft techno music that sound a tad bit ominous. The music is supplemented with some ambient sounds. There is no voice acting in the game but there are a few cinematics that helps to narrate the storyline in the game.
In short, Global Agenda: Free Agent is a pretty good free-to-play MMOTPS in a MMORPG-style progression. The game features a unique fusion of shooter-based action, role-playing mechanics, and grand territorial strategy gameplay. In this game, you’re a special agent, who is fighting against the Commonwealth, along with the resistance forces. However, in order to be able to deal a bigger blow to the enemy, you need to make your character stronger! Level up your agent’s skills, earn technology upgrades by carrying out special ops, unlock various futuristic weaponry and cutting edge devices, and train yourself by pitting your PvP skills against other players in the arena! Fight for territorial rights for your agency and collect adorable robotic pets along the way! If you love experiencing something new, the brilliant mix of genre that Global Agenda: Free Agent provides is definitely something you’d want to experience! Try it today!
