US publisher Tri Synergy has acquired the license for PAN Vision's acclaimed action title "BANDITS - Phoenix Rising" for the North American market

Tri Synergy expects to release the game December this year

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, November 4th, 2002 "BANDITS - Phoenix Rising" is to be released in North America this December.

Tri Synergy and the rest of the software world first learned about "BANDITS - Phoenix Rising" at the ECTS show in London earlier this autumn, leading to the contract for North America being signed this week.

Tamra Nestler, President & CEO of Tri Synergy, commenting on the titles shown at ECTS said:

- In my opinion the most promising title on exhibit at ECTS this year was a well-kept secret called "BANDITS - Phoenix Rising".

I predict that "BANDITS" will take the US market by storm and be the sleeper hit to come out of ECTS.

- Tri Synergy is a medium size player in this important market and we feel they can give "BANDITS - Phoenix Rising" the necessary focus for a succesful North American launch, says Peter Levin, CEO of PAN Vision.

We are confident that Tri Synergy is big enough to make a broad impact, yet small enough to move quickly and get "Bandits - Phoenix Rising" the attention it deserves at the trade and retail levels. "Bandits - Phoenix Rising" has already proven its appeal and demand in the Nordic region with a highly succesful retail launch last month.

- Tri Synergy is thrilled to be the North American publisher of "BANDITS - Phoenix Rising".

"BANDITS" is by far the most exciting vehicular combat racing game to enter the PC gaming arena in years! says Shane Nestler, Executive Vice President of Tri Synergy.

Top notch graphics, amazing physics, an incredible soundtrack and fast paced, nonstop action are sure to make "BANDITS" a great success in North America and the rest of the world.

- We trust PAN Vision and TriSynergy to do an excellent job publishing "BANDITS" in the US together, says Bo Andersson, CEO of Grin Inc, the developer of the game.

We know we have geared up with a great title, it will be exciting to see what it can do in the field.
