SQUARE ENIX TO DISTRIBUTE CI GAMES TITLES ENEMY FRONT AND LORDS OF THE FALLEN IN THE UK, IRELAND AND FRANCE
Products expand Square Enix portfolio in UK, Ireland and French markets
London, UK: Square Enix Ltd. has today announced a distribution agreement with CI Games for the release of Enemy Front for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC and Lords of The Fallen for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Enemy Front is the first truly modern WW2 FPS, featuring stunning visuals and a richly interactive combat sandbox gameplay experience. Against the visceral backdrop of breathtaking European locales, the player takes on the role of American war correspondent Robert Hawkins, as he takes on – and covers – iconic missions from anti-Nazi Resistance operations in France, Nazi Germany, Norway, and Warsaw throughout WW2.
Lords of the Fallen is a challenging action RPG set in a medieval fantasy world ruled by a fallen god. Players must enter this ruined, ancient landscape to tackle the formidable Lords and Generals that command the fallen god’s demonic army. Lords of the Fallen puts emphasis on spectacular, tactical combat, rewarding skill and persistence for the dedicated action RPG fan.
“We’re delighted to continue our relationship with CI Games in France and expand our collaboration to include the UK and Ireland” said Justin Gaffney, General Manager – UK & Export, Square Enix LTD. “Square Enix has a long history of supporting external development, and these titles fit perfectly within our own catalogue of high quality products.”
Marek Tyminski, CEO, CI Games commented, “We have been very happy with how our partnership worked in France. Giving the distribution to Square Enix for our next two key products in the UK, Irish and French markets is a very natural progression based on that success”
Enemy Front is due to release in June and Lords of the Fallen will be available this autumn, 2014.
