Mastertronic has today announced the release of two high profile PC titles to add to their existing range. The titles will retail at the VAT- reduced price of£4.88 and are available to buy NOW on the Sold Out label.

Worms™ 4 Mayhem is one of the most infectious strategy action games! Worms are back in force with bold new levels, an improved 3D camera and animation system, new customisable weapons, ridiculous new outfits, and the same devilish attitude. Blow the bejaysus out of each other’s team in the turn-based anarchy that you love. Experience online multiplayer madness with crazy new battle modes and max out your damage with utterly destructible, themed landscapes. Make your team unique with custom hats, hair, hands, glasses voices and more and build your own fiendishûber-arsenal! Described by PC Gamer as‘Classic stuff... A multiplayer blast’, this game is a true manic mischievous mayhem!

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six™ 3 Raven Shield™ Complete, the sequel to Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six™: Rogue Spear™ (2000 Action Game of the Year - PC Gamer US) and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six™ (1999 Action Game of the Year - PC Gamer US) is sure to keep you right at the edge of your seat. Take command of Team Rainbow, the most elite counter-terrorism force ever assembled. When terrorists assault our world, they incur the wrath of Team Rainbow. Your duty begins when negotiations end. With 30 specialist team modes and over 57 real-world weapons, there is not threat you cannot contain. PC Gamer wrote:‘No other games out there offer the same level of thoughtful action. It is the best single-player close-combat game and excellent online’. Ensure you do not compromise with terror– just eliminate it!

About the Mastertronic Group Limited

Mastertronic is one of the best known electronic entertainment brands in Europe. It pioneered the European console market with its launch of the Sega Master System, invented the value retail sector and built an international development and publishing operation under the Virgin Mastertronic label. The brand was subsequently re-launched as The Mastertronic Group Limited in 2003 by founder Frank Herman, together with Andy Payne and Garry Williams. The Group now leads the European value publishing sector through its retail brands M.A.D. (Mastertronic Added Dimension), Sold Out (the UK's largest-selling budget operation, acquired by the Group in 2004) and PC Gamer Presents, a unique quality-assured brand in association with the leading games magazine publisher Future Publishing. The Group also offers, through its wholly owned subsidiary The Producers Limited (also acquired in 2004), a 'cradle to grave' total turnkey service for physical product, from marketing through packaging and warehousing, to retail and digital distribution. More recently in 2006, Blast Entertainment was launched as part of the group and has rapidly become a leading video game company exclusively aimed at the younger end of the kids market. Blast develops new content based on recognised family friendly licenses from films, TV, classic characters and toys and publishes on a variety of formats including PlayStation 2, Nintendo DS and more recently, Nintendo Wii. In 2007 Just Flight, and its sister company Just Trains, the leading worldwide simulation specialists, were acquired by the group. Just Flight was established in 1995, and within three years became the world’s largest publisher of flight simulation software outside of Microsoft, with a reputation for high quality products, published by genuine enthusiasts.
