1C Company Rolls Out Three New Properties and Brings Two Back

*MOSCOW, Russia, July 2, 2007* – Leading Eastern and Central European
publisher 1C Company unveiled today its primary titles to be shown at
the E3 Media & Business Summit 2007 in July. 1C is the largest publisher
in Europe (by covered territory) and plans to release all of their top
games for 2007-2008 in the US through either Atari, Inc. or their own
means. 1C’s hot new lineup includes the US launch of a brand new FPS, a
never-before-seen driving combat game, a classic fantasy title
reimagined and a new build of our AAA shooter. These titles represent
the apex of gaming entertainment from various 1C developers.

“1C recognizes that die hard gaming fans love classic titles and is
pleased to bring two franchises back to life. We will continue our
strong tradition of innovative gameplay and immersive storylines with
our newest group of titles for 2007-2008,” said Nikolay Baryshnikov,
International Sales Director 1C Company. “Together with Atari, we would
like to introduce our games to the American audience and invigorate
multiple genres with our unique take on great gaming.”

Our newest FPS is /Necrovision/, an intense shooter with both a combat
system and a mystical spell system to help combat the realistic and
fantasy enemies. Interactive elements, puzzles and huge boss battles
will be the staples of this title. Joining /Necrovision/ is our AAA
action shooter, /Cryostasis/. /Cryostasis/ puts players in the boots of
a Meteorologist on an ice trapped freighter fighting off the frozen
denezens of the ship and bitter cold. 1C is also bringing back two
classic games in modern form. /Death Track: Resurrection/ – the
successor to the legendary /Deathtrack/, a game which is considered by
many the founder of the modern combat racing genre will be drivable at
E3. Also the beloved /King’s Bounty/ is back in all its RPG and
turn-based combat glory. However this time it’s all 3D with
cutting-edge special effects, a new build will be available to play at
the 1C booth. Finally the new classic /XIII Century: Death or Glory/
where knights clash in fierce battles will be available to play as well.

Along with the playable builds above 1C will have review and preview
titles available to approved journalists on site. These include review
builds of /Star Wolves 2, Parkan II /and/ You Are Empty/, a preview
build of /Death to Spies/ and a /Fantasy Wars /demo. Assets for these
and all other games from the 1C 2007-08 line-up will be available on the
digital press kit at the booth.

1C Company will be located at booth #327 in Barkar Hanger in Santa
Monica. 1C’s booth is in the middle of the hanger straight down the
center aisle. Since space in each booth is very limited we suggest
making an appointment to see our newest titles.
