Kylotonn and publisher Digital Jesters, who have been working closely with AMD throughout the Bet On Soldier: Blood Sport (its new official name) development and announced today that their FPS will ship with a 64-bit version that has been specifically optimised to take full advantage of the processing power of the 64-bit AMD Athlon 64 FX processor.

The AMD Athlon 64 processor family continues to exceed expectations in facilitating the creation of dramatically enhanced and accelerated gaming experiences, with more and more developers taking advantage of the evolution in processing power.

Developing the game with built-in 64-bit capability enables much faster access and processing of data for PC games, allowing developers the freedom to create larger, more immersive game worlds, faster and smoother frame rates and, ultimately, a noticeably enriched gaming experience.

"As a developer we are delighted to be able to work with AMD. The state of the art tools and technology they've provided allows us to realise our creative vision in the best possible way," Roman Vincent, CEO, Kylotonn commented. "We've worked incredibly hard to make Bet On Soldier a solid and engrossing game, and it's fantastic to be able to further enhance that experience by optimising everything for the AMD Athlon 64 FX processor."

"AMD64 computing is taking the gaming community by storm by offering players the most eye-popping, blood-pumping experience imaginable," said Bob Brewer, corporate vice president, Desktop Marketing Segment, Microprocessor Solutions Sector (MSS) at AMD. "AMD led the charge into this new gaming realm with the introduction of its innovative AMD64 technology more than two years ago, and Bet on Soldier: Blood Sport promises to be a riveting addition to the growing line-up of 64-bit games."
