Partners with SquareEnix for Fantasy Earth Zero

Gamepot (USA), Inc will soon unleash
one of the most anticipated free-to-play online games on North American gamers:
Fantasy Earth Zero (FEZ). This massively multi-player online role-playing game (MMORPG)
from Square Enix Co., Ltd., the creators of Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, two
of the world’s most well-respected video game franchises in history, will make
its way to North America for the first time with its launch early this year.
Combining the respected pedigree of Square Enix with the Gamepot (USA) promise
of high-quality free-to-play games, FEZ aims to be one of the top online
entertainment experiences of 2010, providing fans of Square Enix – and of all
MMORPGs in general – a chance to step into a world fueled by exhilarating
combat, absolutely free of charge.

Fantasy Earth Zero boasts a vast
game world that puts epic warfare directly in the hands of the players,
emphasizing bristling battle systems, loyalty to friends and defending the
player’s country against all threats. FEZ combines fast-paced action and RPG
elements in a player vs. player vs. environment (PvPvE) world.

"Imagine a world of perpetual
warfare, legions of unique classes, and a Hyper-Active Battle System —Think
the best scenes in Gladiator or Braveheart, with the action ratcheted up to 20,"
said Thomas Lee, senior director of business and marketing, Gamepot (USA), Inc.
"It’s quite unlike any MMORPG available – our 50 vs. 50 PvP system is pure,
pulse-pounding excitement. And now, for the first time ever, North American
players can step into a world from the creators of so many high-quality RPGs,
completely for free."

In Fantasy Earth Zero, an era of
peace ironically brings about war, which causes trivial disputes of the past to
evolve into full-blown battles, throwing the world of Melpharia into chaos.
Kingdoms are created and destroyed over the years while their inhabitants fight
for control of powerful crystals spread throughout the land. These crystals are
the origins of everything in the world and their power can be used for
transformations, healing, and more, making them invaluable.

Fantasy Earth Zero features three
distinct classes to choose from, five unique kingdoms vying for a player’s
allegiance, immersive quests, a stunning soundtrack by Hitoshi Sakamoto (Final
Fantasy Tactics, Final Fantasy 12), the pulse-pounding excitement of 50 vs. 50
PvP and a nearly endless array of character customization options, making it one
of the most robust and anticipated free-to-play MMO games of 2010.
