3 February 2010, Singapore– Asiasoft Group of Publishing Companies (“Asiasoft”) today announces the launch of @Global Games, a new and exciting gaming platform that will serve up specially localized games just for South East Asian players.
For the first time, gamers from South East Asia will be able to play and compete with each other within one unified game server, without the restrictions of IP blocks or the lack of game support.
To helm the launch of @Global Games, Asiasoft has chosen Requiem: Alive ( http://requiem.aglobalsea.com), the Southeast Asian version of the popular Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (“MMORPG”) Requiem: Bloodymare and Memento, developed by Gravity Co., Ltd in Korea.
Based on the overwhelming success of Requiem: Bloodymare and Memento Mori in North America and Russia, Asiasoft is confident that Requiem: Alive will resound just as tremendously with South East Asian gamers through the hugely accessible @Global Games platform.
“We are pleased to launch the @Global Games platform, to give our players the opportunity to make contact across geographical borders and to get a true taste of the different cultures that make up South East Asia,” said Gerry Ung, Managing Director of Asiasoft.“We are also honored to be collaborating with Gravity Co to launch Requiem: Alive as @Global Games flagship game title. As one of Korea’s biggest game developers, Gravity Co has long prided itself in producing state-of-the-art online games and we look forward to bringing South East Asian gamers the very same benchmark of quality titles with @Global Games.”
@Global in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam will now merge into @Global Games, marking a milestone at the beginning of 2010 for Asiasoft. The objective of @Global Games in 2010 is to build a strong community of gamers across South East Asia, regardless of race or culture.
@Global Games will also set the stage for Asiasoft’s regional business partners to strategically cater and reach out to customers in South East Asia, through @Global Games games.
“The launch of @Global Games will strengthen the professional relationships with other businesses in South East Asia,“said Ng Kok Khwang, Marketing Director of Asiasoft.“Technology has transformed our workplace into a global one, and @Global Games is the perfect platform for us to connect with regional business partners, to better meet the needs of our South East Asian customers.”
