Austin, Texas, July 28, 2010 - UTV True Games, an international publisher of multi-player online games and AsiaSoft, South East Asia's leading online game publisher, announced today that they have partnered to bring popular action-adventure MMO, Warrior Epic, to Asia. AsiaSoft will exclusively publish, distribute and operate UTV True Games' Warrior Epic across Asian territories. The game is now available at AsiaSoft's @Global Games portal, http://www.aglobalsea.com with each Southeast Asian territory's website is available in the native language.
"Warrior Epic was developed in Asia with the Asian gamer in mind so we are excited to finally bring the game home to these fans," said Jeff Lujan, CEO at UTV True Games. "AsiaSoft is the perfect partner to help us foster new relationships with gamers in Southeast Asian territories such as Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and more."
Warrior Epic is an online, action role-playing game set in an original fantasy universe. In the game, players will assume command of a Warrior Hall from which they manage their characters' adventures. They can recruit from a wide array of Warrior Classes, each with its own style of play. Each class and the Hall itself can be upgraded visually as well as functionally. Players adventure together in multiplayer campaigns, adventure mode, solo quests and PVP.
One of the most unique aspects of Warrior Epic is that death does not mean the end of a warrior. Instead, it opens totally new and strategic options for players. The game's unique Warrior Spirits System enables fallen warriors to not only be revived at any time at their hall, but also to be transformed into Spirits that can be bound to weapons to increase and open weapon abilities and skills, or they can be called out to inflict massive damage depending on player needs.
"Asiasoft is delighted to launch Warrior Epic on @Global Games, in partnership with UTV True Games. Through @Global Games platform, gamers can forge new friendships across geographical borders and contribute to the growth dynamics of the gaming community," said Sherman Tan, Chairman of Asiasoft. "Asiasoft also looks forward to connecting with global partners such as UTV True Games to bring in more content for the gaming community."
