Hypernia Announces Games Partnership with LucasArts
Global Launch Partner for Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron
September 07, 2007

Tuesday, September 7---Miami, FL--- Hypernia Hosting Corp®, the leader in online hosting services and solutions for the interactive entertainment industry, is pleased to announce their role as global launch partner to game publisher LucasArts for the successful PSP handheld game, Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron.

Known for providing tier-1 bandwidth for CDN, gaming and media streaming, Hypernia was carefully selected by LucasArts as their official launch partner based on Hyernia’s lengthy and successful history in the online games space. Hypernia’s large volumes of equipment, bandwidth and facilities around the world enable game players to enjoy a robust multi-player experience.

Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron is a recently-released project in the Battlefront saga exclusively for the PlayStation Portable, designed to offer an all-new storyline in the single-player mode and extremely robust PSP multiplayer options. Battlefront Renegade Squadron allows up to 16 players to compete via Infrastructure mode (eight-person support for ad hoc), with a special 100-point spending system to purchase custom kits with more than a million different combinations that can be used to create unique Star Wars characters. There are also online leader boards that let you check out how you rank against other players.

James Vallord-Costa, CEO and co-founder of Hypernia, notes, “We are leader in providing robust online services to the global online and multi-player games community. Our new relationship with LucasArts is an extension of that commitment to creating remarkable player experiences. We are proud to partner with LucasArts and look forward to supporting other topline products for them in the future.”

Hypernia also developed their unique Free Ranked Server program (www.freerankedservers.com) to support the games industry. The publisher-targeted program uses special security technology to protect the sensitive files data provided by game companies. Hypernia is the only provider in the world capable and authorized to offer this unique high-level game server service featuring the desirable ranking ability to publishers such as Activision, EA Games, THQ and other top game companies in the industry.

In addition to their support of game companies such as LucasArts, Hypernia is the only company in the world to offer full desktop control of game players’ servers. Players can avoid "web panel" lag that other ranked providers offer and run all of their favorite games at the same time including voice servers, free web hosting and FTP. Game players can serve as many players as they want on their dedicated server, public or private, as well as multiple ranked servers running on one machine along with other games. Hypernia’s online forums provide a specialized opportunity for gamers to share hosting, secure administrative support and moderated discussion on stats and hardware specifications.
