New GameRanger online gaming service available for PC

For Immediate Release

Perth, Western Australia -- November 13, 2008 -- Scott Kevill, President of GameRanger Technologies, today unveiled the launch of the GameRanger online gaming service for PC, offering a better way to play online.

GameRanger delivers where other gaming services only pretend to care -- making it easy to play your friends online, while still providing a warm and vibrant community atmosphere to make new friends. GameRanger removes the tedious hassles and brings the fun back to online gaming.

"Many PC gamers end up avoiding multiplayer because of connection issues or because they simply don't enjoy playing faceless strangers as much as playing with people they know," remarked Scott Kevill.  "It's about time something was done about it."

GameRanger achieves these goals by safely eliminating connection problems with routers, NAT and firewalls, and when coupled with full lobby support for over 500 games, allows you to easily play with the people you want in private or public games. Community and social networking features include profiles, friends lists, instant messaging, in-game voice communication, and competitive ladders/ rankings/ratings for the more adventurous.

Join up and tell your friends to start playing online with classics like Dungeon Keeper 2, Master of Orion II, Sacrifice and Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri through to recent games like Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Civilization IV: Colonization, Command&Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath and Dawn of War: Soulstorm.

GameRanger is available now as a free download from
