eWorld Counts Down to Chinese Market Launch of Online Gaming Platform

SHANGHAI, CHINA--(Marketwire - Jan. 17, 2008) - eWorld Interactive, Inc. (OTCBB:EWIN) (the "Company" or "eWorld") is pleased to announce that the Chinese language version of its online multi-player game "BattleZone" will be publicly launched for open beta testing on January 18.

Company CEO Guy Peckham remarked, "Not only does this signify our foray into the successful monetization phase of our business, this is also an important milestone in the development of eWorld's entertainment portal. We are currently anticipating over 5 million users to participate in the open beta testing of BattleZone."

The open beta phase is the next and final step towards full commercialization of the product and it allows the Company an opportunity to fully promote the game throughout eWorld's extensive distributor and internet cafe network of over 100,000 locations. This final test period stimulates consumer appetite for the game, creating early demand to promote presales of game cards through the distribution channels.

BattleZone, created by Korean game developer Sidus and adapted for the Chinese demographic by eWorld, was originally launched in a Korean language version for its home market and is a web-based, cartoon animated, multi-player game that has been in development over the past 2 years specifically for the much larger Chinese market. Users engage in a 5-10 minute battle, mostly in team-play mode, and emerge as winners or losers. Unique techniques, battle situations, character role development, competition and team play provide the foundation for a strong and loyal player community. By gaining experience and wins in the game, online characters acquire enhanced capabilities providing ongoing depth and interest. Equipment, training and skills may also be purchased by the players using their prepaid game cards.

Mr Peckham further noted that, "Based upon the early sales figures deriving from our recently held distributor meeting, I strongly believe that the BattleZone revenue model will be a great business and revenue stream for eWorld." eWorld has exclusive sales, marketing and distribution rights for the game in Mainland China. Additional revenue opportunities also exist from derivative merchandising in and around China.

Additional user information and access to the open-beta test site is available at eWorld Interactive's site at www.17dian.cn. The commercial launch of the game is planned to occur concurrently with the retail distribution of prepaid player cards upon completion of open beta testing.
