Power Challenge Launches Major Update to Popular Soccer Game

Upgrades and Enhancements in Power Soccer Raise the Bar for Online Sports Games


Menlo Park, California and Stockholm, Sweden– December 12, 2007– Power Challenge, creator of the popular international browser-based soccer game Power Football, has updated their game with rich new community tools, improved graphics and a brand new name: Power Soccer is now the ultimate worldwide multiplayer experience.

Substantial upgrades promote a more ample community environment, including two-sided customizable trading cards for every player, opponent ratings and active forum support to aid new and veteran players and the only online game to offer saved personal game highlights. The new release further improves the community experience by allowing participants to play within their own region, play in a level-based official Power Tour Cup or challenge other competitors from different countries!

“We are very excited about the upgrades and additions we have included in Power Soccer for this major update,” said Johan Christenson, CEO of Power Challenge.“We have created a unique platform that merges the best elements of console play into the deep community involvement of web-based gaming. With a worldwide player base our goal was to make the game more enjoyable and allow anyone to play anywhere there is an internet connection. The new user interface gives players the ability to create a personalized team in minutes, and to be ready to play a head-to-head, full-screen 3D matchup in 30 seconds or less.”

Power Soccer is currently running 50,000 one-on-one matches per day, with a projected 1 million matches daily by December 2008. With this kind of growth Power Challenge has implemented several key improvements that will help to encompass the needs of such a large audience. These upgrades include increased player detail and additional models, gamepad support for console veterans, instant rematches and live system administrators to better address unsportsmanlike conduct.
