New Turn-Based Card Battle Game
Exclusively at Best Buy

Bellatorus Deluxe from Masque
Publishing to be offered exclusively at Best Buy this fall

Masque Publishing, a leading
developer and publisher of PC and Mac based card, casino and casual games,
announced today that their latest PC release—BELLATORUS DELUXE—will be offered
at the brick-and-mortar retail level exclusively in Best Buy stores. The game
releases in early-October and will remain exclusively in Best Buy stores through
the end of the year.

BELLATORUS DELUXE is a strategy,
turn-based card battle game that follows along similar lines as Magic: The
Gathering in terms of core mechanic; but BELLATORUS also adds its own
distinguishing characteristics, making it an intriguing new take on the trading
card/card battle genre.

The goal of each individual card
battle—whether against computer AI or against another human opponent—is to
destroy your enemy’s tower while at the same time defending and building up your
own. BELLATORUS offers a fantasy single-player campaign mode—where you come upon
a mysterious island in the midst of all-out Good vs. Evil war—in addition to
traditional multiplayer mode where you can battle other humans over the Internet
in head-to-head competition. Other features include:

  • Hundreds of cards, wide range of
    attacking and defensive powers and values.

  • 3D graphics and animations to
    bring the battles to life.

  • Multiple alliances, each offering
    different gameplay experiences and requiring different strategies.

  • Numerous card deck options—e.g.,
    Aggressive Deck, Defensive Deck, etc., or form your own deck.

  • Variety of strategy options to aid
    in your attack and defensive tactics—trade resources, hire and train various
    types of allies, and build a range of village improvements.

And the most significant added
feature that BELLATORUS has to offer is the Card Editor, where you can customize
your own cards with unique powers and point values.

BELLATORUS DELUXE will also be
offered for sale as a digital download through WildTangent.com or can be
purchased via Masque’s own web store, at
www.masque.com. A free trial
demo is also available for download at Masque’s web store.
