Press Release:

    FOX INTERACTIVE'S HIT PLAYSTATION TITLES CROC & DIE HARD TRILOGY SHIP 1 MILLION UNITS EACH

    LOS ANGELES, (May 28, 1998) -- Fox Interactive has reached another milestone with worldwide demand for two of its groundbreaking titles. The three-in-one sensation, DIE HARD TRILOGY, and the company's first original title, CROC: THE LEGEND OF THE GOBBOS, show no signs of slowing down or saturation with the titles shipping more than 1 million units each to date.

    "The continued global consumer demand for DIE HARD TRILOGY and CROC: THE LEGEND OF THE GOBBOS further solidifies our position as a premier provider of interactive entertainment," said Jon Richmond, president, Fox Interactive. "This reinforces our commitment to creating quality titles inspired by Fox's hottest entertainment properties along with enticing games featuring fresh and original content. The coming year will be even more exciting with The X-Files Game, N20: Nitrous Oxide --our second original title -- and the launch of Fox Sports Interactive."

    An instant hit with critics and gamers alike, DIE HARD TRILOGY has earned the reputation of being the best movie-inspired game ever created for that platform and is now part of the PlayStation "Greatest Hits" series. This three games-in-one title combines the best of the shooter; search and destroy; and driving genres to create an explosive, action-packed gaming experience.

    One of the best reviewed PSX games of 1997, CROC: LEGEND OF THE GOBBOS introduces an all-new character in a totally-original 3-D platform adventure. Gamers help CROC, a crusading crocodile, on his mission to save his Gobbo Islander friends from the grasp of the evil Baron Dante.

    You're Just a Cop...
    In the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time.

    You may think one game isn't enough - but do you have what it takes for THREE games in one? Give it your best shot, or at least die trying. You're at the center of three totally different, thrill-packed adventures playing Detective John McClane as he takes on a highly trained team of international terrorists. It's non-stop action with any adventure you choose, each delivering amazing depth, palm-sweating realism and detail packed into 45 awesome levels.

    Die Hard (Part 1 of 3)
    Fight and shoot your way through a high-rise wired to explode!

    This game is a blast -- literally! You can destroy almost everything in sight including walls, plants, cars and motorcycles. A special "vanishing wall" feature ensures that you never lose sight of John McClane as he navigates through passageways, around walls and past obstacles. All characters' actions are created using motion-capture technology, providing highly realistic movement.

    Die Hard 2: Die Harder (Part 2 of 3)
    Gun down terrorists in a hijacked airport!

    Build your arsenal as you take out terrorists. Your weapons will vary in power, trigger response, maximum ammo, autofire rate per second and sound.

    Remember: as the game progresses, so does the difficulty. You can turn 45-degrees in either direction to locate, aim and fire at terrorists as you travel through the detailed 3-D levels. But if you take a hit from a bullet, you'll feel it, and your vision will become significantly blurred for a brief moment!

    Peripherals supported by Die Hard 2:
    Konami Hyperblaster, Sony Mouse.

    Die Hard With A Vengeance (Part 3 of 3)
    Drive above, below and through a crowded city besieged with hidden bombs!

    Hop in and hang on as you speed through the streets of New York City locating hidden bombs while the detonator clock ticks away. Motion capture technology plus actual scanned textures makes every movement of every New Yorker amazingly realistic.

    At your driving disposal are more than 15 vehicles including a Yellow Cab, Police Car, Dump Truck, School Bus, Fork Lift and a few special Italian and German driving machines for the ultimate high-speed adventure. Each vehicle offers different handling, speed, acceleration, braking, weight and skid capabilities.

    Peripherals supported by Die Hard 3:
    Namco Negcon, Mad Catz Steering Wheel.

    Die Hard Trilogy blasts onto shelves in September 1996, on the Sony PlayStation (Suggested Retail Price of $59.98), Sega Saturn (Suggested Retail Price of $59.98) and Windows 95™ CD-ROM (Suggested Retail Price of $54.98)

    FOX INTERACTIVE'S BREAKTHROUGH GAME
    DIE HARD TRILOGY EXPLODES ON SEGA SATURN & Windows 95



    MORE THAN 500,000 UNITS OF PLAYSTATION VERSION SHIPPED WORLDWIDE



    -- Fox's Three-in-One Sensation Now Pushes Sega Saturn and Windows 95 to Amazing New Heights --



    LOS ANGELES -- (Jan. 17, 1997) -- The wait is over for Sega and Windows 95 CD-ROM gamers as Fox Interactive unleashes the breakthrough DIE HARD TRILOGY gaming experience for Sega Saturn and Windows 95 CD-ROM on Jan. 21. In just three months, DIE HARD TRILOGY for PlayStation has shipped more than 500,000 units worldwide and is being touted by gamers and critics as one of the greatest movie-inspired video games of all time -- topping charts everywhere. Now DIE HARD TRILOGY pushes Sega Saturn and Windows 95 to the outer limits of gaming excitement.

    "The breakthrough success of DIE HARD TRILOGY for PlayStation has set the stage for Sega Saturn and Windows 95 fans, who can now experience all of its action and intensity," said Jon Richmond, president, Fox Interactive. "With three games in one, DIE HARD TRILOGY combines the best of the shooter, search and destroy and driving genres that are so popular with hardcore gamers."

    In DIE HARD TRILOGY, fans experience three totally different, thrill-packed games playing John McClane (a cop with a habit of being in the wrong place at the wrong time) as he takes on a highly trained team of international terrorists. Each adventure delivers amazing depth, palm-sweating realism and detail packed into 48 levels.

    First, put your search and destroy skills to work as you fight and shoot your way through a high-rise wired to explode in DIE HARD. The battle begins down in the parking garage as you make your way up, floor-by-floor, searching hallways, office suites, even a grand ballroom to save hostages, discover hidden bombs and build your arsenal of weapons.

    Then, use your best marksmanship to gun down bad guys who've taken over Dulles Airport in DIE HARDER. There's no time to check in your bags as danger comes at you from every angle inside the highly detailed terminal, out on the airport runway and even in the Virginia countryside, where armed terrorists wait in ambush.

    In DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE, drive above, below and through crowded New York City streets filled with hidden bombs. Get in, sit down, buckle up and hang on as you slam on the accelerator in a race against the clock that challenges your most "offensive" driving skills with 10 different vehicles.

    DIE HARD TRILOGY is the first Sega Saturn title to pack three distinct adventures on one amazing disc -- bringing new dimensions of action and entertainment to Sega's next generation video game system. All of DIE HARD TRILOGY's key elements are available in both the Saturn and Windows 95 versions, including the title's signature "obstacle fade out" technology, in its first-ever appearance on Saturn and Windows 95.

    This unique programming dissolves obstacles such as walls, posts and corners in real time to ensure continuous action and an unobstructed view of your character, John McClane. In another Saturn breakthrough, two of its exclusive peripherals, the Stunner and Arcade Racer, can be played on a single title -- for the maximum "Die Hard" experience.

    Rated M for gamers ages 17+, Fox Interactive's DIE HARD TRILOGY is set to invade Sega Saturn and Windows 95 CD-ROM on Jan. 21, 1997 at an estimated shelf price of $54.98.

    Fox Interactive, an operating unit of Fox Filmed Entertainment, a News Corporation Company, is committed to developing bold and engaging interactive entertainment.

    FOX INTERACTIVE COMBINES
    THREE EXPLOSIVE ADVENTURES IN ONE EXCITING
    GAME WITH DIE HARD TRILOGY



    Video Game Critics and Hardcore Gamers Are Blown Away



    LOS ANGELES, May 16, 1996 -- Critics and gamers around the world are raving about Fox Interactive's DIE HARD TRILOGY, the most explosive game ever to blast off a video screen. Experts agree that one game is never enough and this blockbuster -- which packs three distinctly different adventures on one amazing disc -- is THE must-have action-adventure game for 1996.

    DIE HARD GAME FAN -- "The visual effects are insane..."



    EGM -- "All the mayhem and action you've come to expect... excellent attention to detail."



    GAME INFORMER -- "Fox Interactive has done the impossible ...everything you want is here."



    VIDEO GAMES -- 10 out of 10 rating. "So amazing that every PlayStation owner on God's Earth will undoubtedly buy it."



    You're at the center of three totally different, thrill-packed adventures playing John McClane (a cop with a habit of being barefoot in the wrong place at the wrong time) as he takes on a highly trained team of international terrorists. It's non-stop action with any adventure you choose, each delivering amazing depth, palm-sweating realism and detail packed into 40 levels. First, put your search and destroy skills to work as you fight and shoot your way through a high-rise wired to explode in DIE HARD. Then, use your best marksmanship to gun down terrorists in a besieged airport in DIE HARDER. And in DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE, drive above, below and through a crowded city besieged with hidden bombs in a race that challenges your most "offensive" driving skills.

    For even more true-to-life action, gamers can use next-generation targeting peripherals and steering wheels to make the DIE HARD experience complete.

    "Early indicators show that DIE HARD TRILOGY will be this season's hottest title. Editorial coverage and reviews have been overwhelmingly positive and retailer response has been very enthusiastic," said Jon Richmond, president, Fox Interactive. "We've also received incredible industry support from Sega and Sony, who are as excited about this title as we are."



    DIE HARD
    The first adventure -- DIE HARD -- puts you inside Nakatomi Plaza, a Los Angeles skyscraper on the brink of obliteration, for an intense search and rescue mission. The battle begins down in the parking garage as you make your way up, floor-by-floor, to the penthouse through more than a dozen distinctive game play levels -- searching hallways, office suites, even a grand ballroom. Throughout your quest, you discover hidden bombs and collect grenades and machine guns to build your arsenal of weapons.

    With the clock ticking away, a directional sight helps you spot evil gunmen while you locate the hostages, who are bound and gagged throughout the high-rise. An over-the-shoulder perspective puts you right where the action is while an exclusive "obstacle fade-out" feature ensures that John McClane is never blocked from your view as he moves past walls, posts or doors. Will innocent lives be saved or will bodies be blown to oblivion as Nakatomi Plaza is wired to explode. It's up to you to keep Los Angeles real estate from literally blowing sky high.

    DIE HARDER
    The second adventure takes you inside Washington/Dulles Airport for a fast moving, first-person perspective, arcade-style action shooter using motion capture technology and incredible real time special effects. There's no time to check in your bags as danger comes at you from every angle in a detailed airport terminal overrun by armed terrorists. You'll earn points faster than frequent flyer miles as you obliterate enemies all over the concourse, in the baggage claim area and even in the Duty Free Shop.



    The chase continues outside on the icy runway and the surrounding Virginia countryside in high-speed snowmobiles. Avoid traps and the enemy because if you get in the line of fire, your vision will "literally blur" as the screen momentarily loses focus. The action comes to a climax with a high speed helicopter pursuit. Can you save the airport with rapid-fire speed or will this be a first-class ticket to one-way annihilation?

    DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE
    Third time's a charm in DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE, a high-speed urban driving adventure. Get in, sit down, buckle up and hang on as you slam on the accelerator in a race against the clock. Zoom through the crowded streets and even down into the subway tunnels of New York City. A gang of terrorists has now stashed bombs throughout Manhattan and it's your job to diffuse them. Seek out more than 15 different vehicles (ranging from a Yugo to a garbage truck to an Italian sports car) to burn rubber and send pigeons flying. Blaze through accurately texture-mapped and fully rendered streets and passageways of Chinatown, Wall Street, Harlem -- even Central Park. Changing stop lights, gridlocked traffic, double-parked vans, NYPD squad cars and the crowds of pedestrians won't stop you in your quest to find the hidden bombs before they vaporize Manhattan. A locator device helps direct you toward the stashed detonators. Do you have the skill to find them all?

    Fox Interactive's DIE HARD TRILOGY for Sony PlayStation is set to blast off retail shelves in August 1996, with the Sega Saturn and Windows 95 CD-ROM versions set to detonate in September. All versions carry an estimated shelf price of $54.98.
