PETROGLYPH® ANNOUNCES “RISE OF IMMORTALS”™ TO LAUNCH SEPTEMBER 12

Eagerly Anticipated Battle Arena Game Nearing Commercial Launch; Players Still have Time to Claim 1,000 Petroglyph Coins (worth over $10) and Exclusive Immortal Skin in Open Beta Test

LAS VEGAS, NV – September 1, 2011 – Petroglyph® today announced that its eagerly anticipated, free-to-play Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) game, Rise of Immortals™, will be commercially available Monday, September 12, 2011.

Rise of Immortals, an online PC game that expands on the hit MOBA genre with new, innovative features, is currently in the final phases of an open beta test. Players still have a chance to be part of the test and receive the exclusive gifts that testers will receive: 1,000 Petroglyph Coins at commercial launch (worth over $10), and an exclusive Immortal skin. The Immortal skin, a dazzling gold version of the robot-suited Psychozen, named “The King of Bling,” will be available exclusively for open beta testers to enjoy both during the beta test, and as a complementary add-on to their account at launch.

Anyone interested in participating in the open beta test can register at http://www.riseofimmortals.com, and will be immediately invited to download the game and start playing.

“The Rise of Immortals development team is a passionate group of battle arena fans, and we are all eagerly awaiting the game’s official launch on September 12,” said Steve Wetherill, executive producer of Rise of Immortals for Petroglyph. “Throughout the development process, we’ve worked internally and with our fans to create a MOBA game that adds all kinds of exciting new features to the genre, and we can’t wait to open it up to the world.”

In addition, Petroglyph also announced today that it is extending its online giveaway of two NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ prize packages, each valued at more than $650. The packages each include a 23" 3D ready monitor, a Superclocked GeForce GTX 560 GPU, and 3D Vision glasses. Anyone wishing to enter the giveaway must register for Rise of Immortals, login to the game, and optionally “Like” the Rise of Immortals Facebook page (www.facebook.com/riseofimmortals), or follow the Rise of Immortals Twitter feed (www.twitter.com/riseofimmortals).

Rise of Immortals is a free-to-play, micro-transaction-based online game that will be available via direct download.

In addition, Rise of Immortals features a social hub where players can show off their enhanced Immortals, chat, emote, browse leaderboards, shop, manage friend and guild lists and more. Players also have the option of taking their Immortals through cooperative Player versus Environment (PvE) scenarios to learn the game, try out new abilities, and earn persistent experience before jumping into Player versus Player (PvP) matches online.

Features of Rise of Immortals:

· Free-to-play
· 12 unique Immortals at launch with additional Immortals released on a regular basis
· Persistent per-Immortal level progression and skill trees
· Persistent artifacts for stat enhancements
· Player versus Environment instances with collectable items
