*MOSCOW**, Russia**, March 28, 2007* – Leading Eastern and Central
European publisher
1C Company announced today that the hotly anticipated game Battle Lord
(working title) has changed its name. Moving forward the project’s
official title is /King’s Bounty™: The Legend/. The change of names does
not mean any changes for release dates or the main conception behind the
project.

/King’s Bounty//: The Legend/ is an adventure with tactical turn-based
battles and RPG elements unfolding in a rich fantasy world. The
character and his army of companions travel across a huge continent,
visiting dozens of different locations all connected to each other.
While communicating with NPCs and fulfilling different tasks, the player
controls their character in real-time mode and all battles take place in
classic King’s Bounty mode with a strong emphasis on turn-based tactical
elements”, says Ivan Magazinnikov, project lead designer.

Developed by faithful fans of the original King’s Bounty, /King’s
Bounty: The Legend/ continues the remarkable traditions of the legendary
role-playing adventure. This creation of Katauri Interactive is not just
a spiritual successor for the critically acclaimed series, but its true
rejuvenation.

“Our aim was to create a game that would preserve the traditions of the
classic PC title,” adds Nikolay Baryshnikov, International Sales
Director of 1C Company. “King’s Bounty was a founder of a new and very
popular genre. There are still people that remember and love this game
throughout the world. I’m sure that together with Katauri Interactive,
the creators of the successful Space Rangers series, we will able to
deliver a game worthy of its famous predecessor.”

The current release date is scheduled for Q4 2007.
