ASPYR MEDIA TEAMS WITH NERJYZED ENTERTAINMENT TO PUBLISH BLACK COLLEGE FOOTBALL XPERIENCE (BCFx) – THE DOUG WILLIAMS EDITION
All Of The Pageantry, History, Excitement And Hard-Hitting Action On PC And Consoles This Spring
Aspyr Media announced today that it has partnered with Nerjyzed (pronounced Energized) Entertainment, Inc., a privately held, African American-owned digital entertainment company to publish BCFx – The Doug Williams Edition. Arriving this spring to PC and consoles, BCFx – The Doug Williams Edition is a first-of-its-kind game that immerses players in the rich culture, history and pageantry of football game day on Historically Black College and University (HBCU) campuses. The game fuses realistic, bone-jarring football action created using the Unreal 3.0 engine with two unique new rhythm games – the interactive Halftime Show and Drum Line Challenge. In addition, a wealth of historical data has been integrated in the Legacy Museum and dozens of licensed tracks performed by college football’s most entertaining marching bands are included in the game’s Jukebox.
“The unique tradition and history of these great institutions is like no other in the world of sports, and they have contributed so much to the collegiate and professional game of football,” said Jacqueline S. Beauchamp, Co-Founder, Chairwoman, and CEO of Nerjyzed Entertainment, Inc. "We have gone to great lengths with BCFx to give fans the excitement, the action, the music, the halftime shows and history that make up a culture that so many people enjoy, and yet so many others aren’t really aware of, in order to have an experience that everyone can appreciate on video game consoles.”
Added Ted Staloch, Executive Vice President of Aspyr, “One of the great things about the videogame business is that we get to immerse players in these amazing, fun worlds. From the comfort of your living room you can now be a rock star, sports star, super hero and more. With BCFx – The Doug Williams Edition players are getting this fantastic, multi-faceted game experience where they get to be the hero on the gridiron, pound out beats on their drum set with the most electric marching bands on the planet and learn about a college sports culture that is vibrant, passionate and has had such great significance to the game of football as we know it today.”
BCFx – The Doug Williams Edition features teams from 36 HBCU schools – including each campus’ beautifully rendered stadium brimming with game day atmosphere – and offers players multiple modes of gridiron action. The Road to the Championship lets gamers pick a school and navigate a grueling schedule on their way to the BCFx Black College Football National Championship while The Classics Mode takes players through a season of legendary HBCU rivalries. In addition, quick play is offered for single and multi-player fun and Practice Mode is where players hone their skills.
BCFx – The Doug Williams Edition truly sets itself apart with its two interactive rhythm game modes. The Drum Line Challenge is a head-to-head Drum Line competition where the gamer performs along with band songs and drum line cadences using a controller or drum pad peripheral. Interactive Halftime Shows let players work the controller and participate in real-time with the renowned halftime performances and earn bonuses that will aid them in the second half of play.
