Set in a dark fantasy world burning with strife and unrest, Shadowbane takes the MMO genre to new heights by offering gamers an unparalleled challenge. It combines immersive role-playing with deep strategic elements such as city management, army creation, siege warfare and economic development.

"We are one of the few publishers to operate MMOs in the US, Europe and Asia," said Gilles Langourieux, Managing Director of Ubi.com. "The acquisition of Wolfpack takes our strategy in the MMO segment one step further as it strengthens our internal expertise and it will allow us to develop quality content under our own brands, which we feel is critical to succeed in the long run."

"Shadowbane was the first online game of its kind to combine immersive role-playing with deep strategic elements such as city management, army creation, siege warfare, and economic development," said Frank Lucero, Shadowbane's producer. "We're thrilled to have the opportunity to join Ubisoft's renowned studios and evolve Shadowbane's compelling gameplay into the future."

The Wolfpack team will continue to create ongoing content for Shadowbane: The Rise of Chaos from their Austin studio. Much of the game's critical acclaim is for having expanded the MMO category into uncharted territory.

Shadowbane is rated "T" for Teen by the ESRB and more information can be found on Shadowbane.com and on the official community site, The Chronicle of Strife: chronicle.ubi.com.
