Nanterre, May 12– Nexway, the European leader of digital distribution of software and video games, is happy to announce the availability of SouthPeak’s brand new PC game Velvet Assassin for download across Europe. The game is available from http://velvetassassin.com.

More than just a game launch, Nexway has joined forces with SouthPeak for the digital distribution of SouthPeak’s full catalogue of video games across France, UK, Spain, Germany and Italy, alongside the development of their corporate e-store, as well as their event websites. Velvet Assassin is SouthPeak’s first game to benefit from this partnership.

Developed by Replay Studios, Velvet Assassin is an intense stealth action game where surreal visuals and a haunting narrative combine to produce an incredible gaming experience. Relive the brutal story of Violette Summer, a British spy deep behind enemy lines in the heart of World War II. Slink through the shadows and take out unsuspecting enemies with a single, deathly silent move. Through Violette’s fevered dreams, experience what she experienced. Walk where she walked…and kill who she killed.

"We are pleased to be launching Velvet Assassin in Europe, and we are sure that fans of stealth and WWII games will enjoy this action-packed title. What is more, we are delighted with the SouthPeak deal and cannot wait to release more quality titles," said Philippe Lebot, Key Account Manager, Nexway.
