Press Release:


    Ubi Soft Ships Highly Original Game with Politically Correct Twist

    San Francisco, CA, November 11, 1997 -- Ubi Soft Entertainment announces the shipping of Sub Culture, the highly original 3D underwater action/adventure with a politically correct twist. Set in a graphically rich world beneath the sea, players assume the role of a miniature humanoid struggling to survive. Your mission? Survive life as a mercenary, bring peace between two feuding civilizations and ultimately save your subterranean world from human pollution.

    "Sub Culture blends a unique combination of action, adventure, and strategy throughout an amazing underwater 3D world brimming with spontaneous life," stated Leighton Webb, product manager for Ubi Soft Entertainment. "The game offers players a refreshingly new gaming experience with unique gameplay, groundbreaking graphics, a tightly woven, original storyline and a subterranean underwater world to die for."

    Developed by Criterion Studios, Sub Culture features unprecedented real-time 3D graphics, sophisticated special effects, and accurate physics-based dynamics modeling resulting in an astonishingly realistic underwater environment. The game was rendered using over 100,000 polygons and built on Criterion's proprietary Dive engine, an extensively enhanced version of RenderWareO, Criterion's generic 3D library.

    The PC CD-ROM title is priced at $49.95. Sub Culture is optimized for 3Dfx Voodoo, PowerVR and Rendition accelerator cards for the richest 3D gaming experience. All other cards are supported via Direct 3D. Forced feedback is supported via DirectX 5.0.
