Prepare Yourself for Sacrifice.
IRVINE, California, April 13, 2000 ? Interplay Entertainment Corp. officially announced today its newest upcoming blockbuster title ? Sacrifice?. This revolutionary new breed of computer game will blend 3D real-time strategy with strong elements of action and role playing, all entwined with multi-player online capabilities.
Developed by Shiny Entertainment, the team that has produced such highly acclaimed hits as Earthworm Jim?, MDK?, and Messiah?, Sacrifice will open up an entirely new experience for gamers. Playing the part of a powerful wizard attempting to appease one of five gods, the user will roam huge landscapes engaging in multiplayer battles, all the while casting powerful spells and summoning monstrous creatures.
"Sacrifice is a truly epic adventure that will blur the lines between multiple genres," stated the President of Shiny, David Perry. "Gamers will absolutely be blown away by the look and feel of this title. It?s a multi-player?s dream come true."
