TNWA Gives Market-Leading X-Ray Anti-Cheat(TM) Software Away For Free!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

London– 23rd November 2007– TNWA (The New World Assembly) Group today announced it will be making its pioneering X-ray Anti-Cheat software available for all gamers and tournament organisers to download for free!

The client-side application, which cost over half-a-million pounds to develop, is available from www.xraygaming.com and is already in full-time use on the UK’s biggest tournament gaming site, Enemydown .

The X-ray Anti-Cheat software can be used by any community online event organiser anywhere in the world to ensure tournament integrity and peace of mind for players.

It’s estimated that more than 10% of players on public server tournaments are using cheat software, giving themselves an unfair advantage against honest players and undermining the esports. X-ray Anti-Cheat detects irregular activity or cheat software on the user’s PC, sends a report and a screenshot to www.xraygaming.com where it’s then published for everyone to review. That player is then held in a comprehensive database as someone who has been caught cheating, preventing them from entering and cheating in other events.

X-ray Anti-Cheat is the only player-endorsed, free-to-use, anti-cheat system that protects gamers on more than eight of the most popular online games, like Counterstrike™ 1.6 and Source, and also includes latest releases like Unreal Tournament™ 3 and Call of Duty™ 4– all in one application!

“Online gaming is still embryonic in many respects, and its future growth depends on new and existing players having the confidence that the games they’re playing are free of cheating,” said Paul Sulyok, CEO of The TNWA Group.“X-Ray Anti-Cheat software gives players that peace of mind. TNWA are delighted to be able to support the wider co-operative community and online gaming events by making this application freely available.”

Sam Mathews, Managing Director of the Fnatic Team, one of the most successful Pro Gaming teams in the world, added,“I think it’s great news that TNWA Group are helping online gaming communities by providing a free anti-cheat application. Increased security within gaming will improve the legitimacy of online tournaments, and will allow event organisers to focus on running the games rather than having to police for cheats.”
