MONTREAL, Quebec – May 27, 2008 – Software publisher Strategy First Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Silverstar Holdings, Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSTR), is bringing back the undead and well-armed hero Karl Stolz, ready to defeat Hitler’s forces with Ubersoldier 2: The End of Hitler. The classic first person shooter is set in WWII with richly added RPG elements and traditional FPS features. Developed by Burut Creative Team and published by Strategy First, UberSoldier 2 will be available for PC in Summer 2008.
It is April 1945. Allied armies are closing on the Nazi capital Berlin. US planes are roaming the skies over the Reich, and the thunder of Soviet artillery can be heard even in the Fuhrer’s bunker. The fall of the Nazi rule is imminent. Even the closest aides have abandoned Hitler and are trying to find an exit strategy out of the war.
Yet, a tightly knit group of SS generals and officers, involved in the most heinous and dark deeds, are seeking a way to save the remnants of the Third Empire. They have conspired to move the leaders of the Reich, together with precious resources and classified equipment, to a remote hideout in the Tibet mountains. There, in the heart of Asia, they can wait for their time, kept safe by the tireless vigilance of zombie monstrosities created in the Nazi secret labs.
You’re Karl Stolz, nicknamed “UberSoldier”, a genetically modified ‘super-soldier’ brought back from the grave and a key member of the team. Together with your friends you must uncover the exact extent of the SS plan, face some of their bravest troops and best war machines, penetrate the occult secrets of the Black Order and travel halfway through the world to destroy your ultimate target.
“We are thrilled to bring this epic shooter to the North American market” said Brock Beaubien, Producer, Strategy First. “Ubersoldier 2 is an exciting twist to the World War 2 genre and delivers exciting fast-paced action.”
“Strategy First is known to be one of the most creative publishers in North America,” said Dmitri Kruglov, CEO of Play Ten Interactive. “We’re thrilled to cooperate on UberSoldier 2 with them.”
Ubersoldier 2: The End of Hitler is a classic first person shooter, set in World War II, where the main hero uses supernatural abilities as well as over 21 traditional weapons such as MG-42, BAR and Panzerschreck, in his fight against the Nazis. Players will be on the edge of their seat fighting both human and unearthly enemies through a variety of adrenaline-pumping missions.
