Silverstar's Empire Interactive Introduces 'Ford Racing Off Road'
BOCA RATON, Fla., Jan. 10, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Empire Interactive PLC, an international publisher and developer of interactive entertainment software and a wholly owned subsidiary of Silverstar Holdings (NasdaqCM:SSTR - News), announced 'Ford Racing Off Road' for the PlayStation 2(tm), PSP(tm) (PlayStation Portable), Wii(tm) and PC. This latest version is based on the highly regarded and best-selling Ford licensed series.

Ford Racing Off Road takes the multi-million selling Ford franchise away from the tracks and urban streets of its predecessors to rugged and tough terrain for the very first time. Ford Racing Off Road also marks the introduction of the prestigious Land Rover brand, which, like Ford, has a long heritage of producing pioneering off road vehicles.

Players can now race some of the world's toughest off road trucks, 4x4's and SUVs through beautifully detailed environments, stunning scenery, and wide, sweeping tracks designed for high-speed racing.

``Ford Racing Off Road is a tremendous expansion of our highly successful Ford franchise,'' said Ian Higgins, CEO of Empire Interactive. ``We introduce some impressive vehicles, stunning environments and great new features. The Land Rover brand brings real excitement and even stronger appeal to the franchise.''

Clive Kabatznik, CEO of Silverstar Holdings, added, ``The release of Ford Racing Off Road demonstrates Empire's ability to continually leverage successful franchises and licenses. We are thrilled to be introducing the Land Rover brand and the mass market appeal that two globally-recognized brands bring to our game line-up.''

Features like real time, on-the-go vehicle damage repair, faster acceleration than any previous Ford game, and alternative routes create a plethora of new and exclusive opportunities to test players driving prowess at high speeds.
