PLARIUM ANNOUNCES SOLDIERS INC., CONTINUES GAMING SUCCESS ON SOCIAL PLATFORMS WORLDWIDE

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL – July 9, 2013 – Today Plarium, one of the world’s fastest growing developers of social and mobile games, announced a new social gaming franchise, “Soldiers Inc.” to launch later this Summer.  The title is the latest from the second largest hardcore game developer on Facebook, whose successful games, Total Domination, Stormfall: Age of War and Pirates: Tides of Fortune are already enjoyed by millions of users daily.  Soldiers Inc. will be available in the coming weeks and, in the meantime, those ready to join the ranks can learn more by visiting: http://bit.ly/15jJjlZ .

Soldiers Inc. is a multi-player, real time strategy game set in a possible near-term future conflict. The title is inspired by present-day military forces, as players guide their soldiers of fortune across the immersive landscape of an embattled failed state to claim a vast world full of hidden content.

To provide an even more immersive experience, Plarium is working with BAFTA award winning composer, Jesper Kyd to score the game’s soundtrack.  Kyd’s impressive resume includes creating original music for leading AAA titles in the Assassin’s Creed, Borderlands, Hitman and State of Decay franchises.

“Soldiers Inc. delivers gameplay, storyline, graphics, sound and music in social gaming  unlike the industry or players have ever seen,” said Avi Shalel, Plarium’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our success stems from pushing the envelope to give gamers what they want.  We don’t rely on  trial and error,  instead, we listen and deliver.”

Plarium’s success has stemmed from a focused development of games for a hardcore audience.   Based on players’ desires for more AAA, console and PC-caliber games, Plarium continues to evolve and grow its titles unlike any other social games developer.  Focused on production value, Plarium delivers smoother game mechanics, deeper gameplay, layered storylines, higher graphic production values, sleeker user interfaces, and the incorporation of major console-level music and sound as an integral part of the game experience.  The company also continues to invest in its titles, expanding the scope of a game over its lifetime, unlike most static social game experiences.  As part of this effort, Plarium also commits many resources to community management, working with clans and players to get their feedback and incorporate it into evolving the game.  Plarium also explores darker, more genre-bending themes and settings for its games as manifested in Soldiers Inc.

Soldiers Inc. will be available in the coming weeks and, in the meantime, those ready to join the ranks can learn more by visiting: http://bit.ly/15jJjlZ .
