Taiwan’s GigaMedia, the operator of the online poker room Everest Poker, is extending its involvement in soft gaming products for the Greater China market.
The company, publisher in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (WAR), an MMORPG video game for PC, is to launch a localised Chinese language information website for the product early in 2009. The project is being done in cooperation with Mythic Entertainment, a US-based game development studio and subsidiary of Electronic Arts.
WAR was launched in September 2008 in North America, Europe and Southeast Asia, and has received a number of awards from the game industry’s media.
The localised Chinese-language website will provide players with up-to-the-minute community news and account management functions.
