The ongoing struggle between Goliath Group and Pandora Inc. has been around for as long as people can remember. When did it all start, and why did these two corporations become so immersed in reducing each other to dust? Corp Wars: Origin takes you back to square one and tells the full story. Care to take a look?
August Goliath was born in a family with rich military traditions but soon realized that carrying out someone’s orders wasn’t as profitable as signing contracts. Eventually, he organized a private military corporation, which quickly became very influential around the world thanks to its flawless reputation in dealing with the most dangerous and delicate matters.
Isaac Pandora was raised by his father, a historian obsessed with the mysteries of ancient civilizations. Since early childhood, despite being enchanted by his dad’s stories, Isaac understood that sheer enthusiasm didn’t get you far in life, money did. That’s why he chose a career of a diplomat and later switched to corporate espionage. Not the cleanest job out there, but he needed the money to continue his father’s work.
The two met many times and even worked together at some point in the 20th century. However, their joint discovery of an ancient artifact in a lost treasury deep beneath the desert sands turned out to be the apple of discord. Goliath stole the artifact and took it to their base to use its secrets for weapon design. Pandora didn’t like that and struck back hard, stealing all the research data from Goliath’s archives. Since then the two corps have been at war, trying to cripple each other at every turn, while maintaining decent public profiles.
Choose Your Corp
In Corp Wars, you first need to choose the corporation you’ll be fighting for. The choice you make is FINAL (there’s no switching sides) and defines the challenges you receive and the rewards you can win. You will be automatically assigned to a rating group where you will compete with other gunslingers, but unlike other events, in Corp Wars you don’t compete with the whole Gods of Boom community – only with your rating group.
Another thing to mention is influence. After choosing a side, all your in-game actions will increase the influence of the chosen corporation. The corporation with the most influence at the end of the event wins!
The clash of corporate power will take place across a total of 6 maps and 2 game modes (Team Deathmatch and Team Elimination). Here’s the list:
- LAUNCHPAD: PANDORA (TDM)
- ARCTIC: BASE (TDM)
- ISLAND: PROMENADE (TDM)
- ISLAND: RUINS (TE)
- EUROPE: STREETS (TE)
- FARMING COMPLEX (TE)
The maps will rotate in the following manner: once every 2 days, three of them will be chosen as active ones, and will be available for event battles. That way, you get a variety of locations and don’t get tired of playing on the same map over and over again!
The fairs of this event are just as epic as Corp Wars themselves.
First, we kick off with the Might fair – a new shotgun that deals additional damage after reloading.
Just one day after that, we’re launching the second fair for the Glory pistol. This bad boy is a perfect companion for Might: if you hit an enemy with Glory, your Might reloads faster, and if you deal damage with Might, your Glory shots get additional damage.
Finally, we come to the last fair of the event – Joker. It’s a gun full of surprises that lets you fire charged shots every once in a while. It may not be the most consistent damage dealer, but it sure is a fun weapon to use!
Last but not least, we come to the awesome event cosmetics. The Pandora and Goliath costumes are awarded for completing the challenges of your corporation. Other neat cosmetics you can get during the event include the Razzle-Dazzle mask for female characters, and a handful of weapon skins and insignias to make your 20th century look complete.
That’s basically it. Corp Wars will take place from March 23 to April 6, so don’t waste any time and start collecting event tokens to spin the living hell out of those sweet fairs. Good luck!
