First Publishing Partner Announced

Another step towards the scheduled October 2006 launch date has been taken by the makers of Chronicles of Spellborn. This press release was issued to announce their partnership with Frogster.

Berlin, 27.07.2006: Frogster Interactive Pictures AG, Berlin-based publisher of computer games, acquired the exclusive marketing and distribution rights of the Massive Multiplayer Online Game “The Chronicles of Spellborn” for Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France, which is already furiously awaited by the gaming scene. Frogster will put the boxed version into retail, as well as handle the community management. The game will be released in 2006, supported by a massive marketing campaign.

„The Chronicles of Spellborn“ plays like Vivendi Universal’s blockbuster „World of Warcraft“ in an atmospheric three-dimensional fantasy world, offers an enormous depth of gameplay and lots of new features, and was developed on the worldwide leading “Unreal Engine” with a two-digit Million Euro production budget by Dutch company Spellborn NV. On this year’s Games Convention in Leipzig, “The Chronicles of Spellborn” will celebrate its public premiere.

Dirk Weyel, CMO at Frogster Interactive, comments the contract: “In the last months, we have been involved intensively with a lot of MMOGs and are most pleased that we now have a project with such a huge potential in our pipeline as ‘The Chronicles of Spellborn”. The development team works highly professional and shares our vision of a long term co-operation regarding marketing and operation of a MMOG. For this, we’ll support the launch of TCoS with the yet largest marketing campaign in Frogster history.”

Barry Hoffman, Marketing Manager at Spellborn NV.: “We are very proud to achieve our publishing goals by signing the publishing contract for ‘The Chronicles of Spellborn’ with Frogster. Their regional presence and extensive knowledge of the local markets ensures the high quality of store availability and support that we aim to achieve with TCoS.”
