Majestic puts players in the center of a powerful suspense thriller in which the lines of reality are quickly blurred (the conspiracy mystery plot could have come straight from a season of The X-Files). Unlike any online gaming experience to date, Majestic decides when it is time to engage, then interacts with players via e-mail, instant messaging, voice mail, fax, and the Internet.For example, you could be reading your e-mail when suddenly your computer announces that someone wants to open up a video conference. You click the link, and fringe investigative journalist Tim Pritchard (played by Joe Pantoliano of The Matrix and The Sopranos fame) appears. He runs a Web site for stories that the conventional media wouldn't dare publish, and he needs your help. The rest of the episode, played out over several days, may involve searches of real and fake Web sites, hacking voice mail systems, intercepting e-mail, and chatting with contacts as you try to unravel Pritchard's mystery. Anything is possible in Majestic.Majestic revolutionizes online gaming as it delivers its content episodically over a full season. The first season of Majestic launches with the free pilot (included in this box), followed by monthly episodes from Electronic Arts for an introductory price of $9.99 per month (subscription price subject to change). As this is an online game, a stable Internet connection is required.
