SÃO PAULO, April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
UOL BoaCompra, the leader in digital goods payments in emerging markets, and Ubisoft, leading creator, publisher and distributor of interactive entertainment, today announced a partnership to grow the company's portfolio of PC online games across Latin America and Southern Europe.
UOL BoaCompra will now support Ubisoft's growth throughout Latin America, Portugal, Spain and Turkey by allowing gamers greater access with the local payment methods they use most. While Latin America and Turkey represent the fastest growing markets for online games, they are also challenging markets to break into, until recently. UOL BoaCompra enables large foreign and regional game developers and publishers quick and easy access to this large, profitable and rapidly expanding market.
"We are happy to work with BoaCompra to offer the best service to our online gamers and consolidate our growth in Latin America, including our promising digital portfolio," said Bertrand Chaverot, Ubisoft's Managing Director for Latin America.
"With titles such as Ghost Recon Phantoms, Might & Magic Duel of Champions, and The Crew, among others, Ubisoft is known for producing outstanding online titles; and Latin America and Turkey are no exception for the prevalence of this strong reputation," said Julian Migura, Director of Global Business Development for UOL BoaCompra. "We're looking forward to supporting Ubisoft's reach by offering local payment methods gamers have access to, which is paramount in emerging markets."
In addition to providing payments throughout LATAM, Portugal, Spain and Turkey, UOL BoaCompra will heavily promote Ubisoft's titles in Brazil through UOL's content portals.
