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 ÂThe Chronicles of SpellbornÂ 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.
ÂThe Chronicles of SpellbornÂ plays like Vivendi UniversalÂs blockbuster ÂWorld of WarcraftÂ 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 ÂUnreal EngineÂ with a two-digit Million Euro production budget by Dutch company Spellborn NV. On this yearÂs Games Convention in Leipzig, ÂThe Chronicles of SpellbornÂ will celebrate its public premiere.
Dirk Weyel, CMO at Frogster Interactive, comments the contract: ÂIn 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 ÂThe Chronicles of SpellbornÂ. 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, weÂll support the launch of TCoS with the yet largest marketing campaign in Frogster history.Â
