GOLFSTAR SET TO TEE OFF INTO BETA TESTING

Hamburg, December 16, 2010 - gamigo is sending its caddies into closed beta testing. The online game Golfstar is set apart by its focus on community features and the possibility to play for first place against up to 30 players. The multilingual server structure allows golfers from around the globe to compete against each other in tournaments or events - regardless of which language version they're playing.

Athletic challenges and cooperation are in the foreground in Golfstar.

With each level up, stats like power, control and stamina can be improved, which directly influences the character's performance. A variety of tasks accompany would-be pro-golfers during their golfing career. Players can join together to form guilds, then level their guild up and participate in competitions for handsome prizes.

In the practice area players will find a driving range and a putting green where they can train and improve their skills. Getting started is easy thanks to the comprehensive tutorial.

A wide selection of clothing and accessories means there is plenty of room to show personality. This means players can choose a unique outfit so their friends will be able to recognize them right away in the square. The selection ranges from cool and sporty outfits to standard golf apparel in argyle and with ankle-high socks.

Closed beta testing for Golfstar will start in English. German, French and Spanish will follow.

Pro-golfers and beginners can sign up for closed beta testing on the official website http://golfstar.gamigo.com.
