Pole to Launch "The 4th Coming" in Europe

Montreal, June 10, 2003 - Vircom announced today that Pole, SARL has acquired the operation license of its world-acclaimed MMORPG "The 4th Coming", previously held until December 2002 by French operator GOA. The new operator has signed an exclusive license for France, Switzerland and Belgium to operate servers in French.

After several months of negotiation with Paris-based operator Pole, Vircom has signed the exclusive European license and is now helping the new operator set up its service. "We are very happy to have finally come to an agreement with Pole", says Sylvain Durocher, President and CEO of Vircom. "We are convinced that Pole will offer European T4C fans a good service and a great gaming experience".

Pole is currently preparing the official launch of the game, scheduled for July 2003. "T4C players from all over French-speaking Europe are in for a great surprise" states Khac-Tuyen Dinh, president of Pole, SARL. "We have planned every aspect of the service to be efficient, fun and simple. And we even added a few surprises", added Mr. Dinh, referring to the new add-ons released by Vircom last summer.
