Trivia

Monster Play

At the end of Closed Beta 2 and before Open Beta started, the developers went toe to toe with players in Monster Play. Developers entered PvMP (Player vs. Monster Player) as player characters (Peeps) and players were able to either join them as player characters, or attack them as monster characters (Creeps). This large battle lasted until the servers crashed.

Ownership

On 1st June 2011 developer Turbine took over full control of the game, from Codemasters.
