NovaWorld hits milestone

One million adversaries.

NovaLogic has just activated its one-millionth NovaWorld multiplayer account, and the publisher adds that as many as a million battles are fought on the service every week.

NovaWorld is a free multiplayer service which links players of games like the recently released Delta Force - Black Hawk Down (with which 71,000 accounts have been created so far) from across the world, and uses a mixture of web and game-based interfaces (mostly accessed from within the software) to direct match-ups.
