Typhoon Games Launches‘Speed Club’ for Facebook

Hong Kong– November 4, 2010: Typhoon Games Ltd., a developer and publisher of digital media entertainment, announced today the launch of Speed Club, a free-to-play street racing game for Facebook offering both single- and multiplayer gameplay. Speed Club is available at http://apps.facebook.com/speedclub and will be released for other social networks in the future.

Speed Club lets players select and customize a sports car to race against other players and computer opponents. Combining the thrill of illegal street racing with competitive gameplay and immersive vehicle customization, Speed Club is a socially driven experience that encourages players to break the speed limit right in their web browsers.

In addition to the pulse-pounding excitement of street racing, Speed Club offers an element of outlaw risk in the form of underhanded racing tactics such as blowing out an opponent’s tires or spattering their cars with mud just to make them mad. Players gain fame by beating other players in Player versus Player (PvP) races, although gaining high notoriety will also increase the risk of being caught by the ever-vigilant police. Should a player run afoul of the law, quick thinking and a new coat of paint will allow them to escape and race another day.

Progressing through the game’s single-player story missions will allow players to unlock additional city maps like Hong Kong or Taipei. Premium upgrades and customization options are available at Speed Club’s Garage Shop. New content is under development and will be released regularly, including new maps, features, items and upgrades.

To play Speed Club for free, visit http://apps.facebook.com/speedclub. For more information including news and updates, please visit the Speed Club fan page: http://www.facebook.com/SpeedClubGame
