Oil Up Those Gloves, the New Version of Ultimate Baseball Online 2007 Spring Edition is Here!

Great New Graphics, Incredible New Features, Even More Sweat-Inducing Game Play

Diamond Bar, California - May 22, 2007 Ultimate Baseball Online, the world's only massively multiplayer online sports game (MMOSG) for baseball, has released the spring edition of UBO 2007, complete with an upgraded graphics engine and incredible new features such as "AI Match," (currently in Beta) which allows individual players (or groups) to take on the CPU in pick up games.

Since the first version of UBO appeared in 2003, players have been asking for an option to play against computer-only teams - for times when they can't find enough human opponents. In the latest edition of Ultimate Baseball Online, individual players or teams can create a pick up game and face off against a completely computer-controlled team. Players can even set the level of difficulty of the AI opponent they're facing. Best of all, in addition to allowing players to practice UBO, players will gain experience while using the AI Match function.

UBO 2007 spring edition will introduce a number of new graphical features, including new animation effects such as auto-replays of homeruns, cut scenes for strikeouts, day and night effects, in-game advertiser graphics, and a brand new UBO stadium. Additional new features include a "Player of the Game" award, wild pitch/hit by pitch animations, mid-career batting/pitching changes, and game score updates and player summaries in the Clubhouse.

Screenshots and video of the newest version of Ultimate Baseball Online 2007 can be found on the MMPR ftp site ( http://www.mmpr.com/MMPRFTP/), inside the UBO folder.

About Ultimate Baseball Online 2007

UBO is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online sports game (MMOSG) where baseball enthusiasts and gamers compete in virtual stadiums. With stunning graphics and surround-sound audio reactions from the crowd, participants control customized characters for each position and compete together against other UBO gamers from around the world. Players create their own avatar to bat, pitch, field, run, and perform other baseball actions.

Participants can play individually, or join a team and participate in a variety of competitive events. Gamers create their own characters and build their skill level (player stats) through successful play on the field against other real human players. Unlike current video games that aim to simulate professional sports, UBO delivers a first-person perspective of a character, created and developed by the player, interacting online in real-time with teammates and opponents.

Darrell Evans, a two-time Major League All-Star ('73 & '83) and World Series champion (1984), serves as UBO's Baseball Ambassador. "Ultimate Baseball Online really does capture the feeling of being a member of a team," said Evans. "Video games are usually a solitary experience. UBO gives players a great appreciation for the nuances of each position, as well as an understanding of the teamwork that is involved in playing the sport of baseball successfully. And best of all, as an online game with four virtual seasons per year, you can play competitive baseball the year round."
