ZHUHAI, China and NEW YORK, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Architectural Engineering, Inc. (Nasdaq: CAEI or the Company), a self-developer of online games and a provider of high-end building envelope architectural systems, today announced that its subsidiary Shanghai ConnGame Network Ltd. ("ConnGame"), will conduct the fourth closed beta testing ("CB4") of its first massively multi-player online role-playing game ("MMORPG") "Warring States" on November 5, 2010.
"Warring States" is a realistic MMORPG based on China's iconic characters and nostalgic epochs, which features meticulously accurate recreations of historically popular heroes and warlords set in dramatic backdrops and varied according to the four seasons. Packed with attractive graphics highlighting China's ancient architecture and cultural elements, the stunning visual effects of "Warring States" offer an immersive and spectacular game experience.
Mr. Alan Leung, CEO of China Architectural Engineering, commented, "With our robust game engines and innovative development teams, CAE is strategically positioned to capture significant opportunities in China's large and rapidly growing online game market. 'Warring States' is the first to launch commercially in the near future among all three games that we are currently developing, as we place greater corporate focus on the attractive online gaming segment."
"Warring States" CB4 incorporates numerous feedback and suggestions gathered from three previously completed closed beta testing. The Company estimates that thousands of top players will participate in the CB4. Before the start of the CB4, the Company will unveil a new version of the official website for "Warring States", and after the completion of the CB4, "Warring States" is expected to be commercially launched to the public.
Mr. Leung continued, "Through the CB4, we aim to collect and analyze servers and clients' data, in order to stress test load stability of "Warring States" in a realistic, massive game play environment. We will also proactively harvest feedback and suggestions from the top players to further fine tune "Warring States" game play and content standards, as well as, to prepare for the upcoming non-restrictive open registration testing and commercial launch. Based on the success of our three previous closed beta tests and the players' favorable impressions, CB4 is another milestone in our methodical march towards the eventual commercial launch of "Warring States". At this point in its development cycle, the ConnGame management team is confident that "Warring States" will become a commercial hit, which will drive CAE's future revenues and profits, and ultimately create greater shareholder value."
