Copyright 2006 Eidos plc Press Release

[ December 4th 2006 ]

Playlogic Entertainment, Inc. and Eidos Interactive, one of the worlds leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, today announced the signing of an agreement for Eidos to distribute two of Playlogic's highly anticipated PC titles "Ancient Wars: Sparta" and "Infernal" in the first quarter of 2007. They will be available both on- and off-line.

"Ancient Wars: Sparta" is developed by Russian developer World Forge and provides players a true Real-Time Strategy experience. "Ancient Wars: Sparta" takes place in the ancient Mediterranean between 500 and 450 BC and is based on realistic historical settings. In command of either the Spartans, Egyptians or Persians you fight for supremacy in the region.

"Infernal," developed by Polish studio Metropolis, is a 3rd person shooter for the PC. The game tells the story of Ryan Lennox, a fallen angel, who has been recruited by hell to restore the balance between Good and Evil. "Infernal" makes use of 'Ageia PhysX software,' enhancing the realistic effects of the game, and also supports the 'Ageia PhysX card' for even more stunning visuals.

"It's great to be working with Playlogic and to have these two exciting titles added to our 2007 PC line-up," said Scott Dodkins, European Managing Director, Eidos. "We know both titles are highly anticipated and we look forward to bringing them to market."

"We are very excited to have found in Eidos our distribution partner for both titles," said Stefan Layer, Vice President and Chief Marketing & Sales Officer, Playlogic. "Eidos has an excellent distribution network and is highly experienced in marketing its products, such as its 'Tomb Raider' (Lara Croft) franchise, which will drive the sales of both games. "We are looking forward to working with them."

Both titles will be distributed by Eidos throughout the world, except from a few countries. Those exceptions are for "Infernal": former USSR and Japan, and for "Ancient Wars: Sparta": former USSR, Italy, Spain and Latin America.
