FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

"RUBIES OF EVENTIDE" GOES LIVE! Cyber Warrior Inc. announces launch of its bold new massively multiplayer RPG

FAIR LAWN, NJ - June 2nd, 2003 - Cyber Warrior Inc, an independent online game developer, today announced the launch of its bold new massively multiplayer RPG, "Rubies of Eventide." With a retail launch aimed for later in the year, currently, "Rubies of Eventide" provides a free, downloadable game client which includes a free 10-day trial of the game.

"The design of "Rubies of Eventide" combines the traditional and the cutting edge," said Julia Howe, Product Manager for Cyber Warrior Inc. "While it improves upon and refines many of the shortcomings of competing titles, it also has a classic MUD feel and flavor to it."

After the included 10-day free trial, Rubies of Eventide will carry a monthly subscription fee of $14.95 for continuing access to the game world. Discounted packages are also available: Quarterly ($35.85, 3 months), Semi-Yearly ($65.70, 6 months), and Yearly ($119.40, 12 months). Players can subscribe for additional months via a credit card, or through PayByCash alternatives. Additionally, players may also sign up for a special, limited availability "Gentry" program that provides both in-game benefits and a reduced monthly subscription fee.

About Rubies of Eventide: Rubies of Eventide is a promising example of change in the MMORPG industry. As a second generation massively-multiplayer game, Rubies defies the "Everquest" template by bringing back the classic strategic RPG turn-based combat, with a twist. Rubies unique combat mode is an "asynchronous real-time turn-based hybrid combat." For players this means planning moves strategically with more attention to tactical rather than split-second decisions. Rubies of Eventide has seven player races and over 100 starting professions to choose from. With this system, no one is ever locked into a stereotypical role based on his or her choice of race and can develop their skills in-game, however they please.

Featuring: Unique turn-based strategy combat mode. No racial limitations on any of the 7 player races or 104 professions. A progressive skill-based advancement system. Nonlinear quests that may or may not involve combat. Parties with up to 10 players. Switch between 3rd and 1st person perspectives. A Faction/Reputation system that keeps track of your diplomatic relations with NPC Factions, player-character clans, and guilds as well as your individual average reputation. Summoned pets. More crafts. Hidden zones and magic gates that respond to changing time and seasons. Over 100 professions to choose from or build your own custom-skilled adventurer!
