The World Cyber Games has announced two additional games for its 2007 competitions.
Joining the roster are Tony Hawk’s Project 8 for the Xbox 360 and Carom3D for the PC. With 12 official titles, the WCG now has the most games ever, attempting to engage a broader, more mainstream audience.
Tony Hawk’s Project 8 and Carom3D join a lineup of 10 previously announced titles including:
1. Starcraft: Brood War (PC)
2. WarCraft III: The Frozen Throne (PC)
3. Half-Life: Counter-Strike (PC)
4. Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars (PC)
5. Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs (PC)
6. FIFA Soccer 07 (PC)
7. Need For Speed Carbon (PC)
8. Gears of War (Xbox 360)
9. Dead or Alive 4 (Xbox 360)
10. Project Gotham Racing 3 (Xbox 360
“The additions of Tony Hawk’s Project 8 – the premiere skateboarding title - and Carom3D – the ultimate interactive billiards experience – are the coup de grace to what is the most prolific lineup of games in e-sports competition history,” said Hyoung-Seok Kim, CEO of International Cyber Marketing (ICM), the global organiser of the WCG.
Additionally, WCG is asking gamers to visit and register at worldcybergames.com, from March 12th through March 20th to help in molding each game’s rules and regulations: the provisional game rules have been prepared and decided by WCG tournament masters and national organisers from participating countries.
“WCG is a worldwide event open to all game lovers, from casual gamers to hardcore and pro-gamers. In the spirit of fair competition, we invite everyone to visit our website to help us form a set of rules for each game in order to provide the best game-playing experience possible,” Kim added.
With over one million players from more than 70 countries, the World Cyber Games features online and offline events held throughout the world. The year-long series attracted more than 1.3 million competitors worldwide in 2006.
