Press Release:

    Blizzard Entertainment Sells Rights to Pax Imperia II

    Irvine, CA, August 6th, 1996 -- Blizzard Entertainment announced today that the company has sold all rights for Pax Imperia 2 to THQ, Inc., a developer, publisher and distributor of interactive entertainment software for PC and console systems.

    Blizzard sold the rights as part of THQ's recent acquisition of Heliotrope Studios, Pax Imperia's developer. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

    Said Allen Adham, president and founder of Blizzard Entertainment, "We recognized that Pax Imperia was a strategic element of THQ's acquisition of Heliotrope, and we felt that selling the rights to the game was in the best interest of everyone involved. THQ and Heliotrope now have the opportunity to complete development of Pax Imperia 2, and we can focus our attention and resources on our upcoming titles."

    Blizzard titles under development include Diablo, a role-playing game, scheduled for release this fall, and Starcraft, a real-time strategy game of interstellar combat, due out this winter.

    PAX IMPERIA was the ground-breaking, award-winning best seller of 1993. PAX IMPERIA: EMINENT DOMAIN again redefines the space strategy genre.

    EXPLORE WORLDS Your universe is as vast as you deem it to be. Explore and colonize hundreds of inhabitable worlds in one of the largest game universes ever created. No two games will ever be the same!

    DEVELOP COLONIES Once colonies are established, they can either be left alone or carefully managed. To excel in this gigantic real-time environment you will have to juggle economics, research and develop hundreds of technologies, build your planet's assets, and establish solid domestic and foreign relations. Your trusted advisors will assist you, but the fate of your people lies with you, and you alone.

    CREATE YOUR SPECIES With the ability to create your own species, or to use one of the game's pre-designed aliens, contact will always be eventful. Intentions will be unknown…treaties made and broken…trust won and lost.

    CONTROL AND CONQUER Occasionally fellow emperors just will not listen to reason. Research, design, and deploy massive armadas. Take control of a revolutionary in-game combat engine and wage battle across your universe. Soon, there will be no question as to whose universe it is!

    COMPETE HEAD-TO-HEAD There will be others who try to call the universe their own. Up to 16 emperors or computer opponents go head-to-head via modem, LAN or Internet connection.
