EA And
Lionhead Descend Onto Store Shelves With Black & White 2 For The PC

Sequel to Award-Winning Black & White Delivers
the Ultimate God Game Experience

Redwood City, Calif. – Oct 4, 2005 – Will you be
an evil or benevolent deity? Electronic Arts and Lionhead Studios today
announced that Black & White® 2 has begun to ship to retail outlets for the PC.
From the creative minds of god game developer Peter Molyneux and RTS-creator Ron
Millar, Black & White 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed hit Black &
White®.

“Everyone at Lionhead is very proud of what they
have achieved with Black & White 2 – it is a monumental task these days to
complete a mass market game. I’d like to thank the whole team for all their hard
work and EA for their support", said Peter Molyneux, Managing Director, Lionhead
Studios.

In Black & White 2, players reprise the role of a
powerful deity in search of a following and return to the once idyllic world of
Eden, where the discovery of weaponry and warfare has tainted the beautiful
landscape. With the help of a player’s gigantic Creature that is raised from
infancy, players must earn the respect and worship of the natives. How a player
chooses to do that, whether through nurturing them or terrorizing them, is up to
each individual.

Black & White 2 includes new elements, such as
improved graphics and miracle effects including rivers of fire and earthquakes
that yield massive destruction. Creatures in the game now learn strategies,
master new abilities and skills, lead armies into battle and be the ultimate
unit. Every choice made has an impact. Each action and inaction prompts obvious
changes to buildings, flora and fauna, all morphing to reflect a player’s
personality.

Developed by UK-based Lionhead Studios, the
creators of the original Black & White, Black & White 2 is rated “T” (Teen) by
the ESRB and has an MSRP of $49.99. For more information about Black & White 2,
