Spring Is In the Air: Netamin Rolls Out Ultimate Baseball

The First Team Sport MMO Introduces Innovative Features for Solo Players

Diamond Bar, California - Mar 01, 2007 Ultimate Baseball Online, the
world’s only massively multiplayer online sports game (MMOSG) for
baseball, has introduced some exciting new features and activities for
solo players in the latest edition of the game. While UBO is still the
most exciting real-time team sport on the internet, a number of new
additions catering specifically to the solo player will be introduced in
March 2007.

One-player mini games will let players test their hitting prowess inside
UBO Camp. Leader boards will track the top players in Homeruns, Triples,
Doubles, Singles, and Batting Average. On-line trophies and Experience
Points will be awarded to the winners.

In addition to the exciting team leagues and tournaments already running
in Ultimate Baseball Online, new “Free Agent Games” are being introduced
for individual players. Players without teams can now get in on the
excitement of the best real-time online sports tournament in the world,
while meeting new UBO players.

Also new with UBO 2007 is the awarding of Power Ranking Points for
teams, based on their performance in a wide variety of UBO leagues and
tournaments. Points will be accumulated throughout the year, with the
top 64 UBO teams earning a berth in The Best of UBO 2007. The global
event features $10,000 in cash prizes and will run from November 26 to
December 21, 2007.

UBO teams can check their Power Ranking Points and other team statistics
at any time on their team page, another new feature of UBO 2007.

Ultimate Baseball Online 2007 also features a number of graphical
upgrades and changes, including new effects and real-world advertisers
in the stadiums, courtesy of a recently completed partnership with
in-game advertising company Double Fusion.

About Ultimate Baseball Online 2007

UBO is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online sports game (MMOSG)
where baseball enthusiasts and gamers compete in virtual stadiums. With
stunning graphics and surround-sound audio reactions from the crowd,
participants control customized characters for each position and compete
together against other UBO gamers from around the world. Players create
their own avatar to bat, pitch, field, run, and perform other baseball
actions.

Participants can play individually, or join a team and participate in a
variety of competitive events. Gamers create their own characters and
build their skill level (player stats) through successful play on the
field against other real human players. Unlike current video games that
aim to simulate professional sports, UBO delivers a first-person
perspective of a character, created and developed by the player,
interacting online in real-time with teammates and opponents.

Darrell Evans, a two-time Major League All-Star ('73 & '83) and World
Series champion (1984), serves as UBO’s Baseball Ambassador. "Ultimate
Baseball Online really does capture the feeling of being a member of a
team,” said Evans. “Video games are usually a solitary experience. UBO
gives players a great appreciation for the nuances of each position, as
well as an understanding of the teamwork that is involved in playing the
sport of baseball successfully. And best of all, as an online game with
four virtual seasons per year, you can play competitive Baseball year
round.”
