WildTangent Accelerates Mobile Momentum With ASUS

WildTangent Games Now Available on ASUS Tablets Worldwide

REDMOND, WA and SINGAPORE--(Marketwired - May 20, 2013) - Today at Casual Connect Asia, WildTangent announced that it has launched its mobile game service on ASUS tablets worldwide. WildTangent Games offers consumers the ability to play premium games for free and receive free in-game items, all courtesy of brand advertisers. In addition, consumers can rent games when free play is finished for a fraction of the retail price, and apply game rentals toward ownership of the games they enjoy the most.

"Our focus is on providing a fantastic cross-device games experience by providing consumers with new choices to play top games for free or for rent, without the commitment to buy them," said Sean Vanderdasson, senior vice president at WildTangent. "By partnering with ASUS, a global leader in the tablet and PC space, we can help their customers find and play great games."

"WildTangent makes it easy for owners of ASUS tablets to install games from a wide selection of publishers," said Vira Chang, Head of the eBusiness Service Department at ASUS. "Through our partnership, we are able to extend WildTangent's streamlined service to our consumers."

WildTangent can be found inside ASUS@vibe+ for Android, an entertainment and content platform that features popular apps. WildTangent Games will be available on ASUS Windows 8 PCs in the coming months.

WildTangent game players can use its patented WildCoins virtual currency for in-game items, and game rental or purchase across all devices. Free game sessions and sponsored virtual items are powered by WildTangent's advertising platform, BrandBoost.
