Urban Assault Overview


Nine days ago Zynga posted a teaser for a new feature called Urban Assault [1]. It has been released to VIP Titanium+ subscribers and will be available for all players tomorrow at midnight [1]. The feature is really just a Limited Time Mission with more rewards and after 68 of them it’s about time Zynga mixes it up a little. There are a total of 30 Missions which are in a maze and you decide which way you want to go. The 10 Reward Stations offer 3 tiers of rewards and there are other tasks along the way. The FAQ is reprinted below and the original can be found here. The loot rewards, in game instructions and a preview are shown below. A walkthrough will be posted prior to the mass release of this event.

Zynga is full of dramatics. Prior to starting the Mission the host, Kasumi Leonovich, will deliver a message to get you motivated.
There are more loot rewards than with traditional Limited Time Missions and these will be covered in more detail in the walkthrough.

  1. All this and only 11 days???? Seems a bit crazy, lol... 21 days AT LEAST should have been added... this mission is a WHOLE lot more difficult than the regular missions... and we usually get 14 days to complete those... so, now it's harder tasks and less days... I think zynga is sending a message here ;)
