Inside Beta: Conquest - Global Agenda -

In this final installment of Inside Beta for Global Agenda, writer Bill Murphy gives us his take on the conquest aspect of the game.

Global Agenda's free-to-play sections based entirely on PvE and PvP missions are reason enough for fans of FPS games to check the upcoming title out, but the real meat of the game's subscription model is centered entirely around what Hi-Rez calls Conquest. Only paying subscribers will have access to this part of Global Agenda, and it's obviously the portion of the game that's the most like other persistent online offerings.

It's one part RTS and one part FPS, where your Alliance (a cooperative group of Agencies) can claim different sections of the world in order to collect big on resources for crafting heavy hitting weaponry, modifications for your agents, and lots of other helpful tools.
