EA to Publish Sony Online Entertainment's Untold Legends for the Playstation 3 System in Europe
CHERTSEY, UK – 13 December 2006 – Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS), the world’s leading interactive entertainment software company, today announced an agreement to publish Sony Online Entertainment’s Untold Legends™ Dark Kingdom™ for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system for PAL territories across Europe. In line with the top-selling PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system game, Untold Legends Dark Kingdom is an action role-playing game (RPG) offering high definition graphics, cinematic storytelling and in-depth character progression. Expanded game-play through the PLAYSTATION® Network will also be featured.

Untold Legends Dark Kingdom provides gamers with a next-generation visual experience using the graphics rendering power of the PLAYSTATION 3 system cell technology. Gamers can enjoy new high-definition graphics offering vibrant environments, beautifully rendered characters, highly detailed creatures and intense battles filled with combat, magical spells and the latest special effects.

“We are pleased to be able to bring this great experience to European gamers for the launch of the PLAYSTATION 3 system,” said Frank Sagnier, Vice President Europe for Mobile, Online, and Third Party Distribution, EA. “Our agreement with Sony Online Entertainment for Untold Legends Dark Kingdom is a very exciting part of the journey further into next generation of gaming with the PLAYSTATION 3.”

Players will be able to experience realistic RPG action through the integration of real-time physics through the use of a unique physics engine system, as well as lightning-fast creature combat and interactive environments filled with destructible objects and challenging puzzle elements. The epic storyline – written in collaboration with Keith Baker, a freelance writer of Dungeons & Dragons material, including his award-winning setting, Eberron – comes to life through in-game cinematics and VO dialogue as players vie to end the tyranny of a King they once served. A multiplayer cooperative mode provides gamers with the ability to play online with their friends, and additional online support through the PLAYSTATION® Network will give players the chance to obtain additional content post launch.

“We are looking forward to working with EA to extend the Untold Legends franchise throughout Europe with the launch of Dark Kingdom on the PLAYSTATION 3 system,” said Christopher E. Sturr, Sr. Global Brand Manager, Sony Online Entertainment. “Gamers across the continent will be able to immerse themselves into this action-filled, next-gen RPG.”
