Ace of Base celebrate their comeback in the dance battle Audition

- to be published immediately -

Munich, Germany, December 9, 2010

The 90s cult band is back! The Swedish-Danish band "Ace of Base" that produced one chart breaker after another in the 90s is currently making a fresh start with two new female singers and a brand-new album, "The Golden Ratio". Another reason to visit the dancers in the dance battle Audition on the free gaming platform alaplaya.net.

The publisher burda:ic brings the popular band to the virtual dance floor for hundreds of thousands of Audition fans. No less than four brilliant songs from the new album are available to dancers, in full length and around the clock. Besides the first single release, the catchy "All for you" which has great hit potential, "Doreen", "Black Sea" and "Vision in Blue" are available for selection in Audition.

Fans with an alaplaya account also get to look forward to various video messages from the band: Ace of Base welcome all users to the portal with a personal message and make their very own stage outfits available as items in the Audition shop. Special events featuring Ace of Base are also planned for the upcoming weeks– this is definitely going to be interesting. A visit to the virtual Audition dance floor is therefore well worthwhile.

This patch is certainly making sure that all users are getting into the holiday spirit: Besides 100 stylish items, special Christmas items are now available for every player. If an item belonging to another dancer appeals to you, it is now possible, thanks to the "user catalog", to purchase it directly for yourself.

Even the long-awaited music list is now featured in the party game Audition. Just add your favorite songs to your personal music list, and have them available on the dance floor whenever you want.

Audition is a free-to-play, unique online dance battle where you go up against players from all over Europe, fighting to become one of the best dancers around. The many different game modes make Audition a truly unique experience.
