Brighton, England, January 14th, 2008: Eurogamer Network today announces it has re-vamped its Eurogamer.net website and has promoted Tom Bramwell to the role of Editor.
The new site features a design update as well as several new useful features for readers. Eurogamer.net now includes easily navigable pages that detail the most exciting games that are coming soon and out now, helping make the site an indispensable buyer’s guide for games. The site changes also benefit readers of the other local Eurogamer websites, Eurogamer.de and Eurogamer.fr.
Alongside these changes, Tom Bramwell has been promoted to Editor of the site after working for the company for the past 8 years. His predecessor, Kristan Reed, will take the role of Editorial director of the site, whilst Ellie Gibson will fill Tom’s previous role of Deputy Editor.
Commenting on his appointment, Tom Bramwell says, "I am delighted to be taking over the website I have spent the best part of a decade helping to establish, write and operate. Kristan's unflinching passion for games and conveying what makes them special leaves me with a great deal to build on, and serving the people who play them will be at the absolute heart of the steps I take to maintain and better the incredible, sustained growth achieved under his leadership. I can't wait to get started."
Eurogamer.net’s new editorial director, Kristan Reed, added, "Tom's promotion is a logical evolution for the site, and one that marks the start of a new era for Eurogamer. He's someone that's become arguably the most creative and dedicated games journalist in the world, and his ideas to take the site forward give everyone a lot to look forward to. As for me, my new role allows me an opportunity to develop relationships and work closer with the people that actually make the games that we all get so heated about. That said, I'm not hanging up my keyboard, and will continue to contribute regular reviews and editorial as usual."
Alongside the new website design and staffing changes, the company has also completed its move into new premises in central Brighton. The new space will allow the business to continue its growth over the coming years. The company’s new address is:
