Strategy First Snags Worldwide Rights to 'Dragon Throne'

by Rainier on Feb. 26, 2002 @ 5:36 p.m. PST

Strategy First is pleased to announce that they have acquired the worldwide rights to Dragon Throne: Battle of Red Cliffs after recently signing the North American publishing agreement with developers, Object Software.
“We are looking forward to bringing Dragon Throne to a worldwide market," says Stewart Braybrook, Director of European Operations for Strategy First. “We see a great potential for it to do very well with both European and Asian audiences. It focuses on a highly celebrated and recognized time in Chinese history and does a great job taking the success of Fate of the Dragon and expanding on it."

Dragon Throne takes players back in time to one of the most significant battles of the Three Kingdoms - the Battle of Red Cliffs. Based in a turbulent and chaotic era, this real-time strategy game follows the collapse of the Chinese Empire - at the end of the Han Dynasty where war and opposition divided China into three kingdoms - Shu, Wei and Wu, led by the warlords Liu Bei, Cao Cao and Sun Quan. Although this tumultuous period lasted less than 100 years, it was so full of rivalry and epic conflict that it still remains one of the most celebrated eras in Chinese history!

Through individual campaigns, players will control their kingdom’s armies and wage war for supremacy as either one of three warlords. They must lead their kingdom by building their own regime, develop new technologies, establish strategic alliances and create powerful armies in an attempt to control the three kingdoms and reunify the nation.

Strategy First will release Dragon Throne throughout North America in Q3 2002 with Infogrames. To discuss potential publishing and/or distribution agreements for Dragon Throne: Battle of Red Cliffs in your respective territory, please contact Strategy First's Business Development department.
