JULY 2, 2012 – LAS VEGAS , NV – Petroglyph®, developer and publisher of Rise of Immortals, a free-to-play Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) game, today announced a new partnership with RISE GAMES, which recently has been established by MTCGAME for purpose of game publishing,to expand the game's reach into Turkish markets. With more than 15 years of game industry experience, RISE GAMES is able to leverage their deep knowledge of both Mideast and Western cultural gaming conventions, business styles and market traits to offer Petroglyph and Rise of Immortals a proven path to success in Turkey.

"We’ve had a lot of interest in Rise of Immortals from Turkish publishers and are excited to finally bring our innovative MOBA game to this market," said Chuck Kroegel, CEO of Petroglyph Games. Adding, "RISE GAMES has a great reputation and unmatched experience in releasing online game products in Turkey, and we look forward to working with them."

RISE GAMES is able to reach out to all of the major country's Internet cafes and game stores, offering Petroglyph and Rise of Immortals seasoned representation in Turkey and potentially other surrounding Mideast countries. Partnering with RISE GAMES, in addition to other territory-specific partners, will facilitate Petroglyph’s continued enhancement of the game with new features and content, including new Immortals and abilities, items, gameplay modes, and various community building enhancements.

"Rise of Immortals has every successful element we want: an experienced team, extraordinary design and technology that clearly differentiates the game in the market. Petroglyph’s desire to create a powerful relationship with their Turkish players with a core MOBA game will see Rise of Immortals make a significant impact across Turkey," said Bulent DEMIRKAYA, Business Development Manager of MTCGAME. 

Rise of Immortals features the popular action-strategy team-based gameplay of traditional MOBA games, but adds enhanced socialization features including player-made guilds and persistent character customization – a first for the MOBA genre. Players have the option of teaming up in cooperative Player versus Environment (PvE) scenarios to learn the game, try out new character abilities, and earn persistent experience before jumping into competitive Player versus Player (PvP) matches to challenge other teams.
