Arabic online sports game portal launched
Empire of Sports Arabia offers online sports games in Arabic and Arabian themed community
Empire of Sports, a virtual world dedicated to sports games, has announced the launch of a new Arabic language version of its site.
Empire of Sports Arabia Beta, a joint venture developed by French games developer F4 and du Media Lab, allows players to join the site, create an avatar, and then compete in online sports games, including skiing, tennis, bobsleigh, track and field, football and basketball.
The site also allows players to join online communities, chat with other players, join teams and buy and trade avatar items. The game area is based around cities, with the site featuring a new ‘Arabia’ city with architectures and cityscapes from the MENA region. The Arabic site will build on the success of the existing English and French service, which was launched in December 2008.
“In the spirit of healthy competition, adventurous fun and sharing, Empire of Sports Arabia presents a new opportunity for avid gamers and sports fans to connect and compete in an engaging, compelling fashion,” said Raghu Venkataraman, Chief Strategy and Investment Officer of du.
The open beta is available to download now from www.eosarabia.com.
