Aeria games acquires ijji

Aeria games is no doubt one of the fastest growing publishers out there, with the support from major publishers like EA games, this company is becoming a real juggernaut of the free MMORPG industry! They have just recently acquired ijji (known for their most popular FPS Alliance of Valiant Arms). But let's cut to the chase, if you don't believe me, take a look at the official announcement!

SANTA CLARA – January 5, 2012 – Aeria Games, a leading destination for free-to-play online multiplayer games, today announced it has acquired ijji Games LLC, a popular free-to-play online gaming portal, from NHN Corporation as part of a strategic agreement that gives Aeria Games the first right with preferential treatment to publish NHN online games worldwide outside of Asia. Under the terms, Aeria Games also received a financial investment from NHN to further fuel growth as a global MMO market leader. The agreement boosts the company’s fast growing player base to over 35 million unique users worldwide while adding complementary titles including the popular shooters Alliance of Valiant Arms (A.V.A.) and Soldier Front to Aeria Games’ robust portfolio of free-to-play games for mid- to hard-core players.

Aeria Games is a global leader in producing high quality online free-to-play games in North America, Latin America, and Europe. The company publishes titles that cater to players looking for a deeper and more immersive multiplayer experience with active community support. Aeria Games’ rapid growth comes from its expertise in delivering highly profitable freemium experiences to what it terms “power players”—hard-core and medium-core players whose average per day play sessions reflect four hours or more. Aeria Games hosts a diverse and rapidly growing portfolio of over 30 critically-acclaimed MMO titles spanning action, roleplaying, shooter, real time strategy, and racing games. The company is recognized for standout games including the MMO Eden Eternal, the popular MMORPG Shaiya, the supernatural MMOFPS Wolf Team, the expansive strategy game Golden Age and the upcoming action shooter Repulse.

“The acquisition of ijji Games further enhances our market leader position in the rapidly consolidating free-to-play sector of mid- and hard-core gaming,” said Lan Hoang, Chief Executive Officer, Aeria Games. “In addition to outstanding new content such as the popular A.V.A. and Soldier Front games and other quality titles from NHN going forward, NHN’s investment—which is our first external funding—will provide resources to facilitate our continuing growth and business expansion in multiple areas.”

With 300 employees worldwide, the California-based company continues to invest in emerging markets such as Latin America, Eastern Europe and Russia while growing its active community in the US and Western Europe. With its focus on first-person shooters, ijji Games adds over 10 million hard-core gamers to Aeria Games’ publishing platform for a combined user base consisting of over 35 million unique power players. Using advanced analytics and committed worldwide customer support, Aeria Games is able to bring quality games to market quickly with full local language support. In turn, Aeria Games’ community fuels development with extended play sessions and in-game purchase levels that are much higher than those yielded by typical online and social network games.

With content partnerships from top game companies such as Electronic Arts and NHN, as well as a host of independent developers from around the world, Aeria Games continues to add high-quality content to its portfolio. The publishing organization offers developers all the necessary tools—from a large established player base, a single virtual currency, data warehouse and analytics, optimized payment options, to local marketing and customer service—to quickly and efficiently distribute games to key fast growing Western markets. As consolidation continues in the dynamic free-to-play sector, Aeria Games will utilize the additional resources from NHN to strengthen its position as a truly device-agnostic platform for mid- to hard-core gamers by expanding its content and platform offerings and growing its international footprint.
This is great news for us gamers world wide!

Thank you for your time,

I hate aeriagames, it sucks. Banns player with no reason and only way to win at any game is to donate around 200$ a month MINIMUM with 4hrs+ a day gametime.
Pay to Play games are MUCH more cheaper, play those. Aeriagames doesnt only have an item mall, its item mall sells things that are ESSENTIAL to the game. Like GEAR. Its the first time I have seen a game where the only way to get good items is by purchasing them from item mall.

I mean the difference between donators and normal players is incredible. I used to play donator, my friend non donator. My friend had 18k HP with around 1000 attack for example and he plays every day 5hrs for 2years. I play for 6months and donate and I got 58k HP and 3500attack.. I can kill him 1 hit and he cant hurt me EVER. If i stayed AFK he couldnt kill me ever.

The difference is incredible and I hate this company.

I play LOL now because donator and non donator is same.

I actually have to agree with this, AGE is a company which claims to be "F2P" yet, they give everything out for their donators so that no "non-donator" player can stand a chance on their games.

I played a couple of AGE's games and the scenerio is the same on every single game, if you do not donate, you won't stand a chance at all, the way in which they think the drops is done for this purpose, because to kill the bosses which drop the best items, you actually need to be a donator.

More than good news, I see this the whole other way around...

Funny how the general reaction to this news is hate towards AGE. It's true though, I started my relationship with this company nearly five years ago at this stage and it's been mostly been stressful, and if ANY other company ran the games I wanted to play how I wanted to play them I'd have been there in seconds.

Now "Aeria" is even bigger then it was before. Hmm I'm wandering how fast "Ijji" entertainment products will become "Aeria" entertainment products? Actually I'm glad that "Aeria" bought "Ijji"
"Ijji" employees were used to be lazy *** *****, that I couldn't tell the same thing about "Aeria" staff. Each "Aeria" game had like weekly updates and active GM's/support team all over the place.
"Ijji" had that one game called "Karos online" which is updated like 1 time in a half year, which sucks badly and makes "ijji" developers look unprofessional and just that simple lack of creation
