Jupiter, Fla. - October 12, 2010 -- Rude Gameware cautions gamers that playing the newest Medal of Honor™ released today by Electronic Arts without the right kind of protection for your PC might result in mission failure. Gamers face hostile territory everyday with threats from viruses and malware, but other anti-virus programs can be notorious memory and system resource hogs, causing framerate drops and other performance hits which sabotage gameplay and annoy your squadmates. GameGuard is designed especially with gamers in mind so they can play in peace.
"Just like everyone else, we're excited about finally getting Medal of Honor today and firing it up," said Michael Epstein, Chief Rude Officer. "Nothing is more frustrating than taking a performance hit in the middle of all the action, and even worse is having to disable your anti-virus software just to play. That's taking an unacceptable risk."
Featuring elements from the industry leading and award-winning BitDefender, GameGuard provides real-time monitoring and automatic updating from virus and malware databases to protect systems from online threats such as rootkits or spyware. Specifically optimized for low resource loads, GameGuard helps maintain high framerates and will never have a pop-up or user request during a game, allowing you to get your game on without annoying interruptions.
GameGuard also provides a safe and secure networking environment for systems, so intruders won't have a chance to gain access to your system. No reconfiguring of ports or disabling of firewalls is necessary; GameGuard is designed to accept required internet connections for online matches or LAN play. What's more, it creates and automatically secures your internet connection with a two-way firewall to keep your network safe from unauthorized users.
In addition, this protection extends beyond your favorite games to protect your online identity whenever you surf the Web. GameGuard has been designed to block web pages that attempt to steal your credit card data and prevent info leaks from e-mail, instant messengers and web pages. You can easily and securely shop, bank and explore the Net without fear of identity theft with GameGuard.
GameGuard is now available by download and in stores across the country for a suggested retail price of $29.95. Medal of Honor is co-developed by EA's Danger Close™ Studio in Los Angeles and DICE in Stockholm, and hits retail stores on October 12, 2010 in North America.
