Ubi Soft Entertainment today announced a pre-order program for Catz 5 and Dogz 5, the newest editions of its best-selling Petz family. Petz fans can now pre-order both titles through or reserving their copies for when the games hit North American retail shelves in mid-November. Additionally, Ubi Soft announced that anyone purchasing any two Petz 5 titles (two copies of Catz 5 or Dogz 5, or one of each) can also receive a $10 mail-in rebate. Catz 5 and Dogz 5 have an MSRP of $29.99 each.
"The Petz 5 titles are sure to be wildly popular and pre-ordering is the only way to ensure you'll get a copy of Catz 5 and Dogz 5 in mid-November," said Ashley Bushore producer for Ubi Soft Entertainment. "With support for Windows XP and the ability for Petz owners to import all officially released Dogz and Catz from previous versions, Dogz and Catz owners everywhere are eagerly anticipating these new editions."

About Dogz 5 and Catz 5

The Catz and Dogz, virtual Petz product lines have sold more than 2 million copies worldwide, while spawning a huge community of loyal Petz owners. Dogz and Catz live on your computer desktop, from little puppy-Dogz and kitty-Catz; you raise them as they grow, play, and learn together. When they grow up, many will start families of their own as they look to you for care, guidance and training. For every Petz you adopt, you'll get to sign an Adoption Pledge promising to be a good Petz owner. Make sure your Dogz and Catz get plenty of healthy food, exercise, playtime - and lots of love from you, because your Petz will run away if they feel neglected. Dogz 5 and Catz 5 are being developed by Studio Mythos Inc., a leading developer of interactive entertainment software. The titles will also include a number of new features including:

  • Weather Effects
  • Day and Night Cycles
  • New Breedz
  • Playscenes
  • Mini Games
  • Litterz
  • New Toys and Clothing
  • Upgraded Graphics
