Extensive Update for EMERGENCY: New Area of Operation and Numerous Rescue Missions at the Start of the First Season

Tübingen, Germany, March 6, 2024 | The developer studio Sixteen Tons Entertainment is excited to announce an extensive update for EMERGENCY, the latest game of the internationally successful real-time strategy series centered around firefighting, paramedics, police, and technical department. Later this month, players can look forward to an additional area of operation, more rescue missions, further upgrade options, and the introduction of the new seasonal ranking system!

Rescue Missions in the Industrial Port

With the upcoming update, the development team is expanding the world of EMERGENCY with a new area of operation. Following the previous challenges in Downtown, Countryside and Laborton, the route of the rescue units leads to the industrial port, an area which demands considerable strategic skill and coordination from players. This new environment encompasses big container yards, administration offices, docks, and industrial areas as well as a cruise liner pier, and a large modern train station – an ideal setting for 80 new rescue missions. Many of these missions have been specially developed for the use of the technical department and require new strategies in managing the operations.

Welcome to the First Season!

With the launch of the new Seasonal Ranking System in EMERGENCY, players have the chance to earn premium currency EMeralds in the free-to-play title! Each Season lasts three months. The top ten players who earn the most points during a Season will be rewarded.

Upgrades for Emergency Teams and Vehicles 

The game introduces over 20 new upgrade cards to enhance emergency units and complete card collections. Among other benefits, the new upgrade cards provide players with an additional engineer for the fire truck, a paramedic for the ambulance, and a new grenade to stun criminals.

Upgrades of a different kind are available for the vehicles in the game: With the new update, the popular Life-Line skins are available for all vehicles. Players can give their vehicle a new look with an animated Life-Line skin.

Available for Mac

EMERGENCY has already attracted hundreds of thousands of players on Windows PCs. Soon, the game will also be available to Apple fans, as the new version will be fully playable on Mac.

Features of the Extensive EMERGENCY Update:

  • New area of operation: Industrial port with rail and track facilities as the fourth operation area
  • 80 new rescue missions: A variety of new challenges, including many missions for the technical department
  • Seasonal Ranking System: Earn points during the season, rank among the best players and receive the premium currency EMeralds
