LOS ANGELES – August 2, 2004 – Vivendi Universal Games (VU Games) and Irrational
Games today announced a North American agreement which grants VU Games exclusive
distribution rights to Freedom Force vs. the Third Reich.
Scheduled for release in early 2005, Freedom Force vs. the Third Reich is the PC
sequel to the original, critically acclaimed role-playing game, Freedom Force.
Freedom Force vs. the Third Reich brings dynamic storytelling, fast-paced
tactical role-play, and larger-than-life heroic characters to the computer
"Freedom Force vs. the Third Reich is a highly anticipated release that we
believe will generate significant demand at retail," said Philip W. O'Neil,
North American President of VU Games. "Irrational's decision to partner with VU
Games is another endorsement for our North American publishing and distribution
"When we decided to self-publish Freedom Force vs. The Third Reich, we knew the
game we wanted to make and how we wanted to make it," said Ken Levine, General
Manager of Irrational Games. "What we didn't know was how to get it into the hot
little hands of all the Freedom Force fanatics! This partnership is the final
piece of that puzzle."

coming months. For more information about the game, visit
