FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Plano, TX, April 14, 2014 –The core development team behind the Unreal 3-powered, Steam-released space shooter, Sol: Exodus, has reunited under their new company, Bit Planet Games, LLC.  Their first game, Exodus of Sol, is a much improved version of their first attempt at re-invigorating the space shooter genre. 

“We’ve improved upon or added so many new features into the game that appending Enhanced Edition (or something similar) to the original name would be short-selling our new game.  Plus, we think Exodus of Sol just sounds cooler!” said Christopher Stockman, BPG’s Founder and Studio Director. “We’re extremely excited to be working together again in a genre we all hold near and dear to our hearts.” adds Kinzie Schwab, Lead Programmer.

Players, once again, wage war across absolutely drop-dead gorgeous landmarks of our Solar System against the ultra-fanatical Children of Dawn.  Exodus of Sol includes many fan-requested features including multiple pilot-able ships, all new missions, enhanced visuals, upgraded ship physics, new 3D radar system, ship energy management, and more!  Exodus of Sol will launch on Steam, PS4 and unannounced platforms at a TBD date.

To celebrate this joyous announcement the price of the original Steam version of Sol: Exodus has been reduced by 50% for the week of April 14!
