MC2 LAUNCHES DRACULA 3!

Paris, June 26, 2007 - MC2 has announced today that it has signed an agreement with Kheops Studio concerning the development of Dracula 3 for PC, the latest installment in the Dracula series.

Inspired by the world of Bram Stoker, Dracula 3 continues the adventure running through the Dracula series, which has sold over 1 million copies worldwide (Dracula: The Resurrection was launched in 1999, followed by Dracula 2: The Last Sanctuary in 2000).

Mgr Arno Moriani, the“devil's advocate”, is carrying out a canonization process, investigating in the interwar years a potential candidate for beatification in Transylvania. His investigation is quickly wrapped up. The strange stigmata on the corpse are not the hallmark of some divine power. In fact, the villagers see it as the“mark” of Count Dracula. The bishop decides to carry out his own investigation to determine once and for all whether the vampire truly exists. But the reality is deceiving. Fiction is powerful. Doubts arise. And doubt begets fear…

“Fans of the Dracula series can’t wait to continue their adventure in the Count’s disturbing world. We are therefore delighted to be teaming up with Kheops Studio to launch Dracula 3”, comments Emmanuel Nouaille, Editorial Director at MC2.

“Kheops Studio is happy to be working with a developer that has been responsible for so many great adventure games,” says Benoît Hozjan, CEO of Kheops Studio.
