CARLSBAD, Calif. – October 3, 2013 – Razer™, the world leader in high-performance gaming hardware, software and systems, today announced a partnership with independent developer S2 Games, creators of popular titles such as Heroes of Newerth, on its upcoming multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game, Strife.
To support the development and launch of the game, Razer has outfitted S2’s team with Blade laptops, along with other peripheral products, to demo Strife. S2 will also be exploring development opportunities with Razer’s critically acclaimed Switchblade User Interface and Surround software.
“We support all things gaming at Razer, and independent developers play a huge role in creating the landscape that fans around the world enjoy,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director. “S2 Games did a phenomenal job in helping to define the MOBA genre in its infancy, and it’s exciting to watch them take the next step in launching Strife.”
Strife will be the developer’s second MOBA title. The genre encompasses some of the most popular games being played at the moment, and S2 will be the first company to come out with a second-iteration MOBA title.
“S2 Games is evolving the MOBA genre, and doing so requires partnering with other leaders in their field,” said Marc DeForest, Chief Executive Officer of S2 Games. “Razer’s innovative prowess makes them a perfect development partner for us.”
S2 is part of Razer’s Indie Development program, which aims to promote the gaming industry by offering a special discounted price on our new Razer Blade Pro Gaming Laptops. To learn more, go to http://www.razerzone.com/
