SUPERHEROES SITED IN EUROPE

Digital Jesters launches its website to the hugely-anticipated Freedom Force Vs The Third Reich

1st December 2004

British publisher Digital Jesters has scooped the rights to Freedom Force vs The Third Reich, beating off stiff competition with the support of French publisher Focus Home Interactive in a co-publishing deal that will see Irrational's highly anticipated sequel hit stores across Europe in Q2 2005 for the PC.

Y-fronts-over-tights fans can find out more by pointing their browsers at http://www.freedomforcegame.com to find somewhere that will offer significantly different content to the popular official Irrational site including 12 part series of the soon to be released Freedom Force animation.

Developer Irrational Games' Freedom Force Vs The Third Reich is the sequel to the critically acclaimed and award winning Freedom Force, and promises to be build on the successes of the original with a new plot, new characters, and perhaps most importantly, a brand new 3D graphics engine (Gamebryo).

Strongly identified by its faithful adherence to the 1960s style of comic book, The Third Reich will offer no less than six new heroes, who will join the cause against their evil counterparts, the six new super villains. Witness the birth of Tombstone! In a thrilling short movie, downloadable from the site.

"We are delighted to be able to provide another port of call for the huge fanbase of the world of Freedom Force," says Terry Malham, financial director, Digital Jesters, "We are delighted to be working with Focus on such a highly anticipated title, and are looking forward to bringing it to the European public."

Once again, the website's URL is http://www.freedomforcegame.com

Freedom Force Vs The Third Reich will be released by Digital Jesters and Focus in Q2 2005 on PC CD-ROM.

Set up by the duo responsible for launching and establishing the Sudden Strike and Cossacks series of games in the UK, the firm's remit is simple: to source and publish the best games available. The company's commitment to originality resulting in it snapping up the original TrackMania game from French developer Nadeo and DJ's ethos of community development strategy resulted in the game becoming one of the sleeper hits of the year. A tie-in with record-breaking yachtswoman Ellen Macarthur for the firm's second release Virtual Skipper 3 ensured the game received widespread attention among the elusive non-gamer, and firmly placed the publisher on the map. The firm has enjoyed three top 10 PC hits and is expanding its operation to cover additional territories. It has also published its own comic book to widespread critical acclaim.
