MOSCOW, Russia – August 13, 2007 – Leading Eastern and Central European publisher 1C Company unveiled today its top titles to be shown at Games Convention 2007. The full lineup includes first-person shooters, turn-based strategy/RPG, Real Time Strategy and combat racing titles.

Together with the two games mentioned above 1C will also showcase King’s Bounty: The Legend, NecroVision and XIII Century: Death or Glory.

Along with the playable builds listed above 1C will have demo, preview and review titles available to approved journalists on site. Assets for these and all other games from the 1C 2007-08 lineup will be on the digital press kit at the booth.

1C FURTHER EXPANDS ITS EUROPEAN HORIZONS: Cenega Publishing becomes 1C Publishing EU

Leading Eastern and Central European publisher 1C Company announced today its next step on the way of strengthening its brand and bringing its titles to the European markets.

1C Publishing EU, a new company formed on the basis of the former Cenega Publishing (Cenega Group is a part of 1C since 2005) will be located in Prague, Czech Republic.

Our aim is to keep this leading role in the region and to expand our business outside the ex-USSR countries. 1C has already opened two offices – one in the UK (1C UK) and the second one in China (1C Asia-Pacific) and we are looking forward to bringing our titles to the continental part of Europe,” said Nikolay Baryshnikov, International Sales Director, 1C Company. “The main goal of our new EU office is to establish long-term relations with distributors and publishers and to offer our games to the European customers.”

“We accomplished great success with building CENEGA PUBLISHING and making it a respected publisher on the gaming market. When we became part of the 1C group, our portfolio increased dramatically, and now we’re offering tens of titles of all genres. We plan to use our experience combined with an impressive slate of solid games and marketing activities to establish new relations and support our long-term European partners,” says Daniela Buryankova, Managing Director of 1C Publishing EU.

1C’s 2007-2008 lineup spans multiple genres including first-person shooters, stealth action, real-time strategy, simulation and role-playing games. It includes such world-renown franchise as King’s Bounty. 1C also plans to bring such highly-anticipated games as Death to Spies and Fantasy Wars to the European audience.

The above mentioned titles and other top games from the line-up were available at the Prague n Play event which took place yesterday.
