Speedball 2 – Tournament rolling out on Steam

Worldwide Retail CD Protected by Steam Encryption and Authentication

Valve, Kylotonn Entertainment and FIP Publishing GmbH, a fully owned subsidiary of Frogster Interactive Pictures AG, announce the impending release of Speedball 2 - Tournament via Steam, a leading platform for the delivery of PC games and digital content with over 13 million accounts around the world. In addition, the retail version of Speedball 2 - Tournament will use Steam's authentication system, allowing Frogster to manage the global distribution of its international e-sports title.

Speedball 2 - Tournament will be available worldwide via Steam at the end of November 2007. At the same time the retail version will be released to the German market. In all other territories the boxes will be available in the first quarter of 2008. The retail disc will use the same authentication technology used for Valve's The Orange Box. Valve's authentication technology enables Frogster to use a single master for multiple languages, to time retail activation worldwide by region, and to control grey marketing and unauthorized activations.
