MENLO PARK, CA (December 18, 2007) - Xfire, the gaming community mainstay with a user base of over 8.5 million, today announced their new "Clan and Guild System," which allows users to join and create up to five clans. Sure to be well-received by current users as well as a great draw for newcomers, the system is a one-of-a-kind application from a site which is already the leading tool for helping gamers connect, chat and play with their friends online ( www.xfire.com).

"We see the Clan and Guild system as the next logical step in growing the Xfire community," say Adam Boyden, General Manager, Xfire, Inc. "The feature was widely requested in the Xfire forums, and we are excited to give our users what they want."

The Xfire Clan and Guild system includes features such as calendar alerts, real-time clan or guild news updates, free forums, and automatic friend updates. When an Xfire user joins a new clan, other clan members will automatically appear on the new user's friends list, eliminating the need to add dozens of connections manually. Xfire will also track the total hours spent playing games and compile all user stats into one aggregation.

The easy-to-use Clan and Guild system is available now on www.xfire.com/clans.
