Ubi and SOE Team Up Again

Ubi, today announced that it is extending its publishing agreement with Sony Online Entertainment to introduce two new games for the PSP Field Commander and Untold Legends The Warrior’s Code. Both games are scheduled for release in spring 2006 throughout Europe, Asia and Australia/New Zealand.

These games are the latest result of the strategic agreement between Ubisoft and SOE to publish multiple titles for the PSP system in these territories, following up on Ubisoft’s announcement that FRANTIX and GripShift would be released in Europe, Asia and Australia in the following weeks. The new games will build on Ubisoft’s success with titles for next-generation portable consoles.

Developed by Sony Online Entertainment, Field Commander is the first military turn-based strategy game for the PSP system and offers engaging, challenging skill-based warfare in a realistic military setting. Untold Legends the Warrior’s Code, developed by SOE, is the sequel to the highly successful Untold Legends Brotherhood of the Blade. It will enthrall gamers with an all-new, epic storyline brought to life through dramatic in-game cinematics and character voice-over, an evolutionary combat experience and unique 3D graphics with real-time lighting and handcrafted environments.

“We are pleased to work with Ubisoft to bring two new and exciting titles to the PSP. Untold Legends the Warrior’s Code is the follow up to one of the top-selling PSP titles of all time, and Field Commander is the first military turn-based strategy game for the PSP. Both titles offer compelling game play experiences that will appeal to casual and hardcore gamers alike.” said Chris Sturr, senior brand manager, Sony Online Entertainment

“These two new titles reinforce our growing catalog of PSP games. SOE is innovating once again for the PSP, and we are very happy to be associated with the distribution of these two future hits.” said Alain Corre, Ubisoft’s executive director for Europe, Middle East and Asia
