FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

23rd June 2009 (Huntingdon, UK)– Heaven Media are pleased to announce that gamers will have the chance to compete for the ultimate prize, to celebrate the new top-of-the-range gaming laptop from Alienware.

The new Alienware M17x laptop combines brains with brawn to give you the ultimate Hi-def mobile gaming and entertainment powerhouse.

With mind-blowing graphics, the latest generation of processors and its new industrial design, you'll have the universe bowing before you.

The first of two stages of the competition,“Frag‘till you drop”, takes place in the Outer Perimeter of Area-51– and qualifying through this stage will require both a steadfast aim and an unyielding endurance. Each contestant will have to play on official Area-51 ranked Counter-Strike: Source deathmatch servers, and the top 51 will proceed into the next stage of the tournament.

These 51 highly talented gamers will be Inside Area-51, battling to prove themselves as the best of the best, as they follow the basic instruction:“Don’t get Left 4 Dead!” Contestants will be facing hoards of zombies in the popular Valve first person shooter Left 4 Dead, with a score table based on achievements and kills.

In addition to this competition, the Enter Area-51 mini-site will feature exclusive features and interviews on Alienware, and what has made them the world’s leader in gaming computers.

“This is our second gaming event with Alienware, after the success of Easter’s Gadget Show Live,” said Adam Godfrey, Business Development for Heaven Media.“With the previous event limited to professional players only this event opens up to the masses, anyone can take part and stand a chance to win a fantastic M17x gaming laptop.”
