Fox Interactive today announced its plans to publish Buffy the Vampire Slayer, a game based on the popular television series, for Sega
Dreamcast, PlayStation and the PC. Scheduled for an Autumn 2000 release, Buffy the Vampire Slayer is an interactive adventure game set to deliver all the action, fighting, humour, drama and characters from the show that fans have come
to know and love.

"Fox Interactive is taking advantage of the vast number of Slayer fans who want more than just their usual Thursday night Buffy fix," stated Karly Young, Director, Worldwide Brand Marketing. "Of all entertainment properties available
today, Buffy the Vampire Slayer is THE franchise that gamers have been asking for. Now's our chance to give gamers the opportunity to live out their own Buffy adventures anytime they feel the need to kick some serious vampire butt. "

About the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Game:

Buffy The Vampire Slayer will be a third person action adventure game where players take on the role of Buffy Summers, a typical high school cheerleader by day and a fierce, but savvy, destroyer of the undead by night. With the help of
her allies and featured characters from the TV series - Angel, Xander, Cordelia, Willow, Oz and Giles - Buffy must destroy the enemy by using her slaying powers, martial arts, slaying senses and quick healing ability. The game combines
action, fighting, drama, humour, exploration and puzzle-solving in rich
interactive 3D environments.

Players will have the opportunity to play this game in environments that are familiar to fans of the show such as Sunnydale High School, the cemetery, town square, the shopping mall, The Bronze nightclub and Buffy's home. Buffy the
Vampire Slayer is a game that invites all Buffy fans to join her at her favorite haunts where it's up to action adventure-loving gamers to save the world from vampires, demons and the forces of darkness - keeping the human race from being literally drained.

Developing the Game:

To maintain the authentic look and feel from the popular TV series, the
producers and creators of the shows, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, will play an active role in the development of this title. Developed by The Collective, a Southern California-based game developer, the Buffy the Vampire
Slayer design team will create detailed and extremely accurate character and environment depictions from the TV series and apply them to the interactive game.

Strengthening it's leadership position in the interactive entertainment industry, Fox Interactive is leveraging its popular entertainment franchise by combining television, music and gaming into one complete package.
