Amsterdam, 26th June 2006
Game Entertainment Europe BV (www.ge-eu.com) has added the game Martial Heroes (www.martialheroes.eu) to its game portfolio as the first massive multiplayer game. Martial Heroes is a 'free to play' game based on oriental martial arts. With the introduction of Martial Heroes, Game Entertainment Europe is offering a new game genre to gamers that like Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (MMORPG).
Martial Heroes is a provocative game to play for both new and experienced gamers. A gamer chooses the role that fits him or her best. By playing quests and using items such as swords and horses, the gamer grows into his role. Of course real success comes from playing the game together. Martial Heroes offers the possibility to form a Guild. There is an unlimited number of levels that will keep the game provocative for every hardcore gamer. New items and extensions are launched daily and there will be events regularly.
Gamers can visit the European website for Martial Heroes, which will be launched in August. Through this site the Martial Heroes game client can be downloaded for free. The European website will be available in English, German, French and Dutch with additional languages being added in the near future.
European gamers will be able to buy interesting items, pay for these with their favourite (local) payment system and use the European helpdesk, forum and Game Masters (GM). Throughout 2006 the international game server for Martial Heroes will be extended with servers dedicated to the European users.
"There are many more great online community games besides those from well known publishers like NCSoft and Webzen. Many games that are successful in Asia are hardly available for gamers in Europe", according to Richard van Barneveld, CEO of Game Entertainment Europe. We are the first company to offer a complete solution to the many problems that game developers face in offering their games in Europe". Game Entertainment Europe can offer 28 different languages, 86 payment methods, local promotion, helpdesk and superior hosting facilities. Besides Martial Heroes, Game Entertainment Europe will offer several other online community games to European gamers. Van Barneveld: "In the short term we will launch an online First Person Shooter (FPS) and several online sports games."
Martial Heroes has been developed by CR-Space Co. Ltd. (http://www.crspace.com), a young and dynamic game developing company from Korea, established in 1999. Apart from Europe, Martial Heroes is available in Korea, China (Shanda) and Malaysia.
