Spike Games Launches 'Deadliest Warrior: The Game' on PlayStation 3 and Reveals Details for New Downloadable Content

PlayStation 3 Owners Can Get Into Battle Starting Oct. 5; Downloadable Content To Feature Three New Warriors And New Features And Enhancements

Initial Xbox 360 Launch Has Exceeded 225,000 Downloads To Date

For More Information Visit www.DeadliestWarriorTheGame.com

NEW YORK, Oct. 5 -- Spike Games' warrior-based fighting game, "Deadliest Warrior: The Game," is available for download starting today on PlayStation Network for $9.99. Based on Spike TV's multiplatform hit series "Deadliest Warrior" and developed by Pipeworks Software (a part of Foundation 9 Entertainment), the game originally launched on Xbox LIVE Arcade this past summer and has exceeded 225,000 downloads to date. Downloadable content for "Deadliest Warrior: The Game" will launch for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in early 2011 to expand the existing warrior lineup while offering new features and enhancements.

Going into its third season, "Deadliest Warrior" has garnered success on air and as a top selling downloadable TV series on Xbox LIVE Marketplace and PlayStation Network. "Deadliest Warrior: The Game," takes direct inspiration from the non-scripted original series and allows fighters to choose one of eight historical warriors, pitting them against one another with customizable authentic weapons, armor and fighting styles that are true to each fighter's history.

The new downloadable content for the game will introduce three historical warriors and based on popular demand from fans on Spike.com, will include the Rajput. A new team battle mode will allow players to pick up to four of their favorite warriors and fight consecutive one-on-one battles with each until all warriors from each side are defeated in the game. Also included are titles for online mode for each player which will be determined based on their rank and other factors related to their in-game performance. In addition, each of the original eight warriors will be given a new medium range taunt which can be performed if the character is in their medium weapon stance.

"With the game exceeding our expectations on every level and having been a consistent top-selling title on Xbox LIVE Arcade since launch, we're thrilled to give PlayStation 3 fans the same experience that has resonated with both enthusiast and casual gamers alike," said Dan Yang, senior vice president, strategy and business development for MTVN Entertainment Group and studio head for Spike Games. "We're looking forward to expanding the game's fan base and giving even more gamers an engaging and fun title that has high replayability while being true to the franchise."

Similar to the Xbox 360 version, PlayStation 3 fans can enjoy a slew of in-game rewards and extras available for purchase, including avatars and a theme which are available on PlayStation Network today. The game is available to all PlayStation 3 owners in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

SPIKE TV is available in 98.6 million homes and is a division of MTV Networks. A unit of VIACOM (NYSE: VIA, VIA.B), MTV Networks is one of the world's leading creators of programming and content across all media platforms. Spike TV's Internet address is www.spike.com.
