The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot's Second Open House Event Is a Success
Last week, we mentioned that Ubisoft's creative dungeon-crawling sandbox, The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot, was about to launch its second Open House event, in which thousands of chickens were to be massacred. Well, that event has now closed it's doors, and Ubisoft is already reminiscing about its success by showing us some stats. In fact, their official press release referred to the event as "a week of come-one, come-all castle buildin’, loot plunderin’, enemy defeatin’, chicken slayin’ mayhem."
The second Mighty Quest for Epic Loot Open House did indeed see an inordinate amount of "chicken slayin' mayhem," as payers killed over 27 million of the feathered little guys. This is more than double the initial goal of 10 million, a number that would make Colonel Sanders proud. It also made Ubisoft proud, as they rewarded players with the release of thousands of new beta keys. And players who took part in the event are invited to be a part of the Double-0 founder's program, which grants them, among other things, instant access into the closed beta.
Want some more stats? According to the press release: "More than 498 million gold coins were stolen, 398 million life force was plundered," and "more than 1.7 million heroes were brought to their knees in the process of attacking friends’ castles." TMQfEL is certainly reveling in its absurd amounts of violence and thievery.
The full commercial release of The Mighty Epic Quest is coming "soon" and will be free to play.
