Conflict Name Change

For immediate release 5 August 2005

Eidos Interactive Ltd, part of SCi Entertainment Group Plc, today announces that the forthcoming instalment of its best-selling Conflict series, CONFLICT: GLOBAL TERROR, will now be called CONFLICT: GLOBAL STORM across all PAL territories, effective immediately.

It will be released on 30 September 2005 on PlayStation 2, Microsoft Xbox and PC.

CONFLICT: GLOBAL STORM brings the series into the 21st century. Using a 100% rebuilt engine, it boasts radically enhanced graphics and AI and is fully playable co-operatively online, a clear generation above previous instalments.

The action focuses on an elite rapid response Special Forces unit, re-uniting the four original members of the Desert Storm series, which must overcome fictitious far right neo-Nazi terrorists over many different countries, including Columbia, Philippines and South Korea.

It is the fourth title in the best-selling series, developed by Bath-based Pivotal Games, which to date has sold over six million units worldwide.
