Blaze Launches 3D Real-Time Multiplayer First-Person Shooter Action



Stockholm, Sweden, June 21th 2006. Blaze, one of the leading mobile game publishers, today announced the sequel in the critically acclaimed Lock 'n Load series. The new installment is the first to use Terraplay's MOVE 3.1 platform and will benchmark the first-person shooter genre on mobile.

Lock 'n Load 2 is set in beautifully rendered 3D environments and lets you invite your friends and foes to intense multiplayer sessions on four different multiplayer maps, either online with up to eight players via Terraplay servers or via Bluetooth. There is also a single player mode where you're challenged to survive over 10 thrilling levels with multiple floors and a multitude of enemies.

"Using the latest mophun technology, Lock 'n Load 2 pushes the mobile hardware to its limits and will overshadow all mobile 3D first-person shooters" comments Martin Forsling, Blaze's European General Manager. "Our multiplayer games have offered players around Europe an unrivalled multiplayer gaming experience with fast paced action and fantastic graphics. With Lock 'n Load 2 Blaze takes 3D mobile gaming to the next level."

Lock 'n Load 2 will be released in August and is available for Symbian handsets including Symbian 9.
