SYFY LAUNCHES NEW SYFYGAMES.COM TO CURATE BEST ONLINE FREE-TO-PLAY GAMES FOR SCIENCE FICTION, FANTASY AND SUPERNATURAL GENRE FANS

REDESIGN WILL FEATURE EXCLUSIVE CONTENT FOR BATTLESTAR GALACTICA ONLINE GAME

NEW YORK - October 22, 2013 - Syfy Ventures today announced a major redesign of SyfyGames.com, which will establish the site as the curator of much of the web's best free-to-play MMO (massively multiplayer online), RPG (role-playing game), strategy and action games.

Targeting the core gaming community, the current collection of browser-based PC games spans the science fiction, fantasy, paranormal and the superhero genres. Gamers can enter any number of game worlds from one log-in profile and explore various community features on the portal. SkillPod Media developed the site in collaboration with Syfy.

Additionally, SyfyGames.com will also offer exclusive content for fans playing the Battlestar Galactica Online game from Bigpoint. Within the newly discovered 46 Graeae sector, all Syfy players will have access to both an exclusive Syfy sector and a special mission. In the new sectors, players shoot waves of challenging enemy ships - smarter than every known AI ship in BSGO - to try and shatter their opponent's supply lines. As rewards for top mission performances, Syfy players will receive brand-new rare weapons.

Said Jeff Li, Vice President, Syfy Ventures: "Syfy's global audience consists of serious gamers who are hungry for premium gaming content. Few game portals do an excellent job of connecting highly qualified users to the best free-to-play online games. Our staff will select only the finest games and offer them on a platform that maximizes game discovery."

Among the new games launching this month on SyfyGames.com are Forge of Empires, Mecha Galaxy, Kings & Legends, Skyshard Heroes, Yi Tien, Nemexia and Call of Roma. Many more games are slated for launch by the end of the year.

Launched in 2008, Syfy Ventures serves as the business development and new enterprise unit for Syfy, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. Syfy's portfolio of businesses transcends the television screen, and focuses upon next-generation brand extensions, including both media and non-media properties. Syfy Ventures rapidly expanding portfolio includes four major business lines: Gaming, Film, Kids, and Consumer Products. Syfy Games is the umbrella brand for Syfy's gaming projects: SyfyGames.com, Trion Worlds (Defiance) and Bigpoint (Battlestar Galactica Online).

Syfy is a media destination for imagination-based entertainment. With year round acclaimed original series, events, blockbuster movies, classic science fiction and fantasy programming, a dynamic Web site (www.Syfy.com), and a portfolio of adjacent business (Syfy Ventures), Syfy is a passport to limitless possibilities. Originally launched in 1992 as SCI FI Channel, and currently in more than 98 million homes, Syfy is a network of NBCUniversal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. NBCUniversal is owned by Comcast Corporation.(Syfy. Imagine greater.)
