<font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">

Paris, France - March 31st, 2004 - <font size="2">Ubisoft,
one of the world's largest video game publishers, today announced that its new
flight combat title, Pacific Fighters, will launch this fall. </font></font></p>


<font size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">WWII's Pacific theater was
the backdrop for some of the most famous aerial battles in history. In places
like Midway, Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima, allied fighters and bombers went head-to-head
against the air power of the Japanese empire. Pacific Fighters provides
the opportunity for players to experience the realistic action, intense flight
combat and immersive gameplay of WWII's Pacific air war. </font></p>


<font size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">"Pacific Fighters
will deliver even more of the high-quality graphics, historical detail and realism
that IL-2 fans have come to expect, this time in a dynamic, new Pacific-war
setting," said Alain Corre, EMEA Managing Director at Ubisoft. "We
are thrilled to offer flight-sims enthusiasts the opportunity to fight in memorable
aerial battles over famous locations such as Midway and Iwo Jima, while still
enjoying extensive multiplayer options"</font></p>


<font size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Backed by the Oleg Maddox
team, Pacific Fighters allows players to participate in the most compelling
Pacific air war experience ever created. Fly planes on either the side of the
conflict, including U.S., Japan, Great Britain, or Australia. There are more
than 40 flyable aircraft, including the F6F Hellcat, the deadly Japanese Zero,
and the UK's Supermarine Seafire. In addition, for the first time in the 1C:
Maddox game series, players will have the option to take-off and land on aircraft
carriers during combat.</font></p>


<font size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">“We're extremely proud
and excited to bring Pacific Fighters to the combat flight sim audience
because we know they're going to be very pleased with improvements to the award-winning
IL-2 game engine and enjoy the new Pacific war setting," said Ilya Shevchenko,
producer. “Players will appreciate the variety of famous fighters, however,
in this title more than any previous Maddox sim, we're emphasizing flyable bombers
such as the SBD Dauntless, Aichi Val, Mitsubishi G4M Betty, and at least four
versions of the North American B-25 Mitchell." </font></p>


<font size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Players may choose from
a variety of bombing missions, including torpedo attacks, dive bombing, and
high altitude bombing. Targets include amphibious landing craft, realistic coastal
fortifications, and a wide selection of ground vehicles, each built to an even
higher level of detail than in the previous 1C:Maddox Games flight sims.</font></p>


<font size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Players will be able to
target enemy ships, vehicles, airfields and aircraft on one of the 16 new maps,
including Guadalcanal, Pearl Harbor and Singapore. The online multiplayer options
allow players to engage in live battles ranging in style from free-for-all dogfights
to cooperative campaigns.</font></p>

Fighters is available on www.pacific-fighters.com (http://www.pacific-fighters.com)</font></p>

Hi, sorry for late reply on this topic.
But I got one question:
Will there be "Torpedos" to drop from your plane?
