Auran - the Australia based game developer currently working on Fury - has partnered with Codemasters to bring the title to Europe when it releases this fall. The game is entirely focused on competitive PvP and progressing through "levels" is done by competing in arena matches to unlock new skills, obtain items, etc. Fury will also follow in the footsteps of games like Guild Wars and be free-to-play, something that will surely draw a lot of attention to the competitive gaming market.
