Hamburg, June 29. InnoGames, German developer and publisher of online games, will release the Sci-Fi MMOG Bounty Hounds Online (BHO) as a high-value boxed version as well. Pan-European distribution partner is publisher Headup Games, set in Düren, Germany. The game box will be released as“Bounty Hounds Online Pro”.
Michael Zillmer, managing director of InnoGames, is convinced that the cooperation will extend the target group of the game:“With an experienced partner like Headup games, we are able to explore new distributive channels and reach additional users.” Managing director of Headup Games, Dieter Schoeller, is also confident of the partnership:“Bounty Hounds Online is a high-quality product, which we will enrich with attractive items for the Boxed Version.”
In October,“Bounty Hounds Online Pro” will be available in shops for about ten Euros. Next to the BHO-Client, the boxes contain exclusive content and premium currency. This offers an additional value, which is higher than the sales price of the product– an interesting option, even for players, who have already installed the Game. Besides German, other language versions like English, French, Polish and Spanish are planned for the game boxes.
Set in the 25th century, Bounty Hounds Online sends its players as mercenaries to Clear Sky Planet, mankind’s retreat after a huge galactic war against extraterrestrial foes. As a member of one of four mercenary factions, their mission is to keep the fragile peace. In order to enter the battlefield, players choose one of five unique mercenary classes with different skills and weapons. Recently, InnoGames completed the Closed Beta of the game: About 1000 players gave valuable feedback for the future improvement of BHO, which will be included in the Open Beta, starting on August 2.
