SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 9, 1999--

To Be Available At September Launch Of Sega(R) Dreamcast(TM)

Don't stop running because you are Expendable(TM)! Infogrames North America, a global publisher of interactive entertainment software, announced today that it will bring Expendable, a heart-pumping action game, to Sega's Dreamcast in time for the 9/9/99 launch of the new system.

Expendable is a third person shooting action game that takes gamers through 20 levels of adrenaline-filled action combat. As a cloned space marine dropped in an unfamiliar world, your mission is to fight unknown life forms that have destroyed the world as you know it. Gamers are required to quickly rampage through the world furiously firing over 15 apocalyptic weapons, all within a time limit. If the time runs out, you're expendable!

Expendable's cutting-edge 3D engine takes advantage of Sega's next generation system by providing a beautifully rendered environment with in-your-face sound, dramatic lighting effects and graphics - all running at 60 frames per second. Highly visual cinematics provide for intriguing transitions between missions.

"Expendable has been designed with the early adopter, hard-core gamer in mind," said Steve Ackrich, vice president of product development for Infogrames North America's I-Motion Studio. "Gamers will find incredible action from one minute to the next, producing heart-pounding gaming experience."

Developed by Rage Software, Expendable will provide single-player and cooperative-play mode where players can assist each other through their fight for peace.
