SG Interactive Throws Down With Team Raptr in Project Blackout

IRVINE, Calif. - March 22, 2011

SG Interactive, developer and publisher of several popular free-to-play games, today announced it will be hosting a Project Blackout clan tournament against team members from Raptr, a leading social platform for games, over the course of this week. The two companies will compete for online glory in popular free-to-play FPS Project Blackout, shooting for the top spot in six matches of Deathmatch action. For fans’ viewing pleasure, two of these matches will be live-streamed via SG Interactive’s LiveStream Channel, starting with the tournament kickoff at 5pm PST this evening.

“We’ve worked closely with Raptr in the past, but we’ve decided to put aside our professional camaraderie for the sake of seeing which side has what it takes to win big in Project Blackout,” said Chris Lee, CEO of SG Interactive.“I look forward to seeing the virtual bullets fly starting later today!”

“Welcome to the Jungle, baby!” added SG Interactive Game Master Killigrew in some spirited pre-event trash talk.
