Silverstar's Empire Interactive to Release 'Sudden Strike 3: Arms for Victory' and 'Stranger' on November 30

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - November 13, 2007) - Empire Interactive PLC, the international developer and publisher of interactive entertainment software and a unit of Silverstar Holdings (NASDAQ: SSTR), has teamed up with publisher Fireglow Games Publishing to distribute two widely acclaimed PC titles: 'Sudden Strike 3: Arms for Victory' and 'Stranger.' The acclaimed titles will hit stores on November 30.

Continuing in the popular vein for which the original Sudden Strike series is famous, Sudden Strike 3: Arms for Victory pushes the boundaries of the real-time strategy (RTS) genre with some notable interface innovations, huge troop numbers, and enormous map designs.

Based on battles featured in World War II, Sudden Strike 3: Arms for Victory takes place in over six campaigns, where the largest of the maps is scaled to two kilometers square and takes an experienced player up to six hours to overcome.

"We are glad to partner with Empire Interactive," said Christoph Syring, CEO of Fireglow. "They are a strong player in the UK market and the reason we provided exclusive distribution rights for Sudden Strike 3: Arms for Victory in the UK."

Rob Noble, marketing manager for Empire Interactive, said, "Empire has a long, very successful history with the Sudden Strike series in the UK and working with Fireglow. Sudden Strike was renowned for innovation in the crowded RTS category, and Fireglow have developed a new chapter in the series worthy of carrying the Sudden Strike banner."

Stranger, the second PC title to be released, is a hybrid of the popular real time strategy (RTS) and role playing games (RPG). Stranger will combine the two popular genres to bring a unique gaming experience to the gamer.

Ludmila Ludvig, managing director of Fireglow, added, "Stranger is also a strong title, which should be interesting for many demanding players. We're confident Empire is the right partner and can effectively distribute this hit title in the UK."
