TRION WORLDS AND CJ E&M GAMES TO BRING TOP-SELLING RIFT TO KOREA

March’s Top-Selling PC Game in North America to be Localized in Korean

Trion Worlds,
a global developer and publisher of premium online games, announced today it
has signed a multi-year agreement with Korean developer and publisher CJ
E&M Games, the online developer and publisher in
CJ Group, to
exclusively publish a localized version of the recently released MMORPG RIFT™
in Korean.

“We take the
Korean market very seriously as it is driven by innovation and growth in the
online gaming space,” said Lars Buttler, CEO, Trion Worlds. “By working with CJ
E&M we are able to bring deep, immersive online gaming experiences to the
east, and continue delivering quality games to gamers worldwide.”

“We are very
happy to introduce the premium MMO RIFT to Korean gamers, as it delivers
a truly dynamic experience which I am personally enjoying very much, and I am
confident Korean gamers will also enjoy this great title,” said Whon Namkoong,
Head of Games Business, CJ E&M.

The agreement comes hot on the heels of NPD’s
March Report which lists RIFT as the month’s top-selling PC game at
retail in North America. While digital sales have significantly outpaced retail
sales, the report details a strong retail performance for Trion’s first premium
online title.
