One page, one account, over 60 games: the new Bigpoint.com

????????? One central account for direct, free access to all games

????????? Multiphase portal relaunch at Bigpoint.com

Hamburg, October 31, 2011– Bigpoint, a leading international provider of online games, has concluded several months of intense development on its game portal at Bigpoint.com ( http://www.bigpoint.com) and is raising the curtain on the new Bigpoint.com: one central hub offering access numerous online game highlights in a clear, modern layout. The site's 225 million registered users– and all new users as well– will appreciate the major improvements to the design and in some cases completely reworked functionality.

One significant change at Bigpoint.com is the account management system: Registered gamers can now link their access data for various games to their Bigpoint portal login, meaning only one login is now needed to enjoy a variety of immersive worlds of gaming. The same also applies of course to new registrations to Bigpoint.com– the portal login offers immediate, free access to all games. Facebook members can also log in directly to Bigpoint.com using the Facebook account and then start playing immediately.

"Bigpoint brings joy to millions of gamers through its modern, high-quality online games that can be played directly and for free using an internet browser," says Heiko Hubertz, CEO and Founder of Bigpoint. "Even during the first phase of its relaunch, Bigpoint.com promises an outstanding framework for our gaming universes– there's something to draw in every kind of gamer and make them feel at home!"

Action, casual, strategy, MMORPG and sports: Over 60 games in five categories serve the broadest possible range of gaming preferences. Among the biggest hits are games developed in-house at Bigpoint as well as casual gaming phenomenon Farmerama, the action MMORPG Drakensang Online and the deep space classic DarkOrbit, as well as highly regarded titles from partner publishers EA and mail.ru. The game lineup is continually being expanded; gamers can always find a quick overview in the News section and Top Games category to ensure they're in early for the newest hits. All games are presented at Bigpoint.com with extensive information, videos and screenshots. By integrating social network services like Facebook and Twitter and the portal-wide rating function, gamers can quickly determine based on their fellow gamers' opinions which Bigpoint highlights they can't afford to miss.

The new Bigpoint.com will be launched in several phases: After the initial start phase, a number of new functions will be introduced to the site in the coming weeks and months, including additional social content. With its accessible, user-friendly design and simple navigation, a visit to check out the new portal at http://www.bigpoint.com as always time well spent.

The renovations have extended beyond the new Bigpoint.com portal. The corporate website at www.bigpoint.net has also been completely redeveloped in recent days.
