Frogster's Speedball 2 Tournament Rolling Out On Steam
Worldwide Retail CD Protected by Steam Encryption and Authentication
Valve, Kylotonn Entertainment and FIP Publishing GmbH, a fully owned subsidiary of Frogster Interactive Pictures AG, announce the impending release of Speedball 2 - Tournament via Steam, a leading platform for the delivery of PC games and digital content with over 13 million accounts around the world. In addition, the retail version of Speedball 2 - Tournament will use Steam's authentication system, allowing Frogster to manage the global distribution of its international e-sports title.
Speedball 2 Tournament will be available via Steam at the end of November 2007 and in stores this fall. The retail disc will use the same authentication technology used for Valve's The Orange Box. Valve's authentication technology enables Frogster to use a single master for multiple languages, to time retail activation worldwide by region, and to control grey marketing and unauthorized activations.
The highly anticipated PC revival to the legendary Amiga classic of The Bitmap Brothers transforms the futuristic game setting with state-of-the-art technology into a high-speed online sports spectacle. Offering international leagues, a worldwide ranking system and an intuitive matchmaking function, Speedball 2 - Tournament pulls all registers of modern multiplayer gaming action. Fully customisable male, female and cyborg characters, dynamic sports battles, and a unique online community platform with online player and clan profiles will thrill sports simulation enthusiasts, action fans, and e-sports experts alike.
