Haarlem, The Netherlands – 15 May 2012 – Independent videogames publisher Iceberg Interactive today announces a publishing deal for Seamless Entertainment's 3D space shooter SOL: Exodus . Debuting at Steam recently, Iceberg will immediately bring SOL: Exodus to all other digital portals worldwide, followed by a 22 June 2012 release of the boxed Collector’s Edition, coming to retail shelves in the UK, Ireland, Scandinavia, Benelux and various other European and overseas territories, as well as the Iceberg webshop.
Topping off the regular SOL: Exodus space shooter fix, Iceberg's SOL: Exodus Collector's Edition will include an exclusive new game mode, a luxurious art book, the official soundtrack, a detailed manual to quench your thirst for space-knowledge and, last-but-not-least, a free STEAM key for the base game.
Iceberg Interactive CEO Erik Schreuder says: “There are tons of science fiction fans out there who have dreamed about piloting their own ship in space, blasting enemies into oblivion and saving the day. Well, that’s exactly the dream that SOL: Exodus promises to fulfill. So step into the grim future of mankind and board the action right now! We have been on a roll lately adding several space related games to our line-up and SOL: Exodus is definitely a really exciting one, full of 3D action, with a great story and highly professional voice acting.”
Seamless Entertainment’s Studio Director Dan Magaha said: “We are thrilled to partner with Iceberg in bringing SOL to wider international audiences. SOL has definitely been a labor of love for us, and we can’t wait to hear from fans and players from around the world. As a small indie developer working in the town where Wing Commander was born, it’s been an enormous honor to build our homage to the classic space games we loved when we were young, and we hope that passion comes through in the quality of our work.”
About SOL Exodus: Collector's Edition
In the world of SOL, 500 years in the future, the Earth that we know and love has been ruined by centuries of war, neglect and abuse, and humanity has left it behind as they colonized the solar system. Their thirst for conflict, however, followed them. It was only once scientists realized the sun was dying that man finally learned to work together. And work together they did - to form the United Colonies of Sol (UCS) and its UCS-1 Mission; the last hope for mankind.
SOL: Exodus is a 3D space-action game that leverages the power of modern graphics technology to deliver epic space battles featuring enormous capital ships, hordes of spacecraft, and beautifully rendered planetary battlegrounds in an action-packed, cinematic presentation reminiscent of TV shows and movies. SOL's aim is simple: to bring current-gen gamers the action space shooter they've craved since the days of Wing Commander and Freespace.

SOL: Exodus and RealD 3D
SOL: Exodus features superb graphics made with Epic Games’ industry-leading Unreal 3 engine. Today, Epic Games announced the entry of RealD into its Integrated Partners Program. Well-known as the standard in feature film 3D technology, RealD incorporates best-of-breed stereoscopic 3D gaming technology into the Unreal Engine, providing commercial UE3 licensees with access to the RealD Game Developer Toolkit source code. SOL: Exodus is the very first game to utilize the RealD technology, literally bringing another dimension to the space combat experience.
