AGOURA HILLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--THQ Inc. (NASDAQ: THQI - News) and Vogster Entertainment, LLC, today announced the upcoming release of CrimeCraft for Windows PC. Scheduled to ship across North America in August 2009, this highly-anticipated game will be available at retail exclusively at Best Buy stores and on www.bestbuy.com. Gamers can begin pre-ordering CrimeCraft in stores on June 7 or online beginning May 31.
“CrimeCraft is a unique forerunner into a genre dominated by fantasy and sci-fi themes,” said Wim Stocks, senior vice president of strategic partnerships for THQ, CrimeCraft’s retail publisher. “The seamless merger of a cutting-edge shooter experience with the depth of online play normally reserved for MMOs has Crimecraft defying traditional genre classification.”

Added Daniel Prousline, vice president of development for Vogster, CrimeCraft’s developer, “We are delighted to partner with Best Buy and THQ on CrimeCraft with its truly refreshing blend of genres. CrimeCraft will offer a great gaming experience to fans of shooters and massively multiplayer titles alike.”

Consumers who purchase CrimeCraft at Best Buy will receive two months of free play time and a number of exclusive in-game items, including two in-game t-shirts from acclaimed real-world fashion labels and a combat backpack for their avatar. Gamers will also receive a virtual Best Buy discount card that allows them to purchase in-game items at a reduced cost.

Those gamers pre-ordering CrimeCraft via Best Buy retail stores or online at www.bestbuy.com, will additionally receive virtual in-game shoes from Ecko Unltd., created by fashion icon Marc Ecko, access to play the pre-release version of the game during beta, and three days’ head start at the game’s launch.

Including "Next-Gen" in your own acronym is definitely a way to make me avoid a game.
