Gamepot Partners with SquareEnix for Fantasy Earth Zero

LOS ANGELES – January 12, 2010 – Gamepot (USA), Inc, the

U.S. publishing division of Japanese gaming behemoth Gamepot, 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 MMOROPGs 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.
