HONG KONG, July 16 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — NetDragon Websoft Inc. (“NetDragon,” with its subsidiaries collectively referred to as the “Group”; Hong Kong Stock Code: 777), a leading online game developer and operator in China, announced that the English expansion pack, Raiding Clans, will be launched at midnight July 16 U.S. Pacific time, which corresponds with 15:00 July 16 Beijing time.
Liu Dejian, Chairman and Executive Director of NetDragon, said, “As a major product of NetDragon, Conquer Online, with its authentic oriental style characterized by chivalrous swordsman, has gained wide popularity among players since its launch at home in China and abroad. The brand-new English expansion pack is enriched with innovations such as “steed system” and “clan system” which have been long anticipated by players. I believe Raiding Clans will not only meet the needs of our faithful players, but also enhance NetDragon’s outstanding performance in overseas markets in 2009. Looking ahead, the Group will continue to root itself in R&D, adhere to its tradition of developing overseas markets, and provide its players around the world with more and more wonderful entertainment experiences.”
