Zynga Builds New Ways to Play With Launch of CityVille 2

Most Popular Social Game Ever is Reimagined With a Unique and Vibrant 3D World
and More Ways to Connect With Friends

SAN FRANCSICO, Nov. 1, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zynga (Nasdaq:ZNGA), the
world's leading provider of social game services, today announced the global
launch of CityVille 2, its newest game in the "ville" genre. With a design
masterminded by Brian Reynolds of FrontierVille fame, CityVille 2 takes the
original CityVille to a whole new dimension by letting players create a 3D
metropolis that is bustling by day and glittering by night, while adding new
social surprises with District VIPs for some friendly competition between
players and real-time, in-game chat. This newest social city game delivers an
immersive mystery storyline with a wild cast of characters, along with lively,
next-generation graphics that make the city feel alive – giving players more
ways to connect with friends and take their ultimate city to great new
heights. CityVille 2 is available today for free on Facebook at
https://apps.facebook.com/cityville-two/ and coming soon to

"CityVille was a runaway hit that brought players a truly social and fun city
building experience. It quickly catapulted to the number one most popular
social game and it stayed in that spot for more than a year after it launched,
reaching 100 million MAU at its peak," said Mark Nelson, Director of Design
for CityVille 2, Zynga. "Drawing inspiration from the original CityVille, as
well as FrontierVille, CityVille 2 immerses players in a storyline peppered
with quirky and interesting characters, while also delivering a beautiful 3D
town where players can compete with or play with friends as they build their
unique city."

CityVille 2 puts players in the thick of the urban sprawl as they find
themselves appointed mayor of their town – a heady task with the city's
revival at stake. Players customize their city from the ground up, mapping out
roads and constructing an array of new buildings ranging from an Auto Plant
and Natural Science Museum to Mansions and even a Pirate Ship Restaurant.
Whether designing a family-friendly city dotted with parks or a jam-packed
downtown that rivals Tokyo or New York City, each player's city is uniquely
their own.

CityVille 2 breaks ground with a host of features, including:

  *Districts, the social center of town – Whether creating the next French
    Quarter or Chinatown, customizable districts let players' personal style
    shine through. Friends can visit each other's districts to compete for VIP
    status to earn extra rewards, with the most frequent visitors garnering
    the honor along with leaderboard bragging rights and reputation points.
  *Make nice with your neighbors – In CityVille 2, players engage and
    interact with friends to help build up their cities, and collect crafting
    supplies from friends. Players can also swap strategy by talking to
    friends in real-time via in-game chat.
  *A new view –The 3D graphics in CityVille 2 let players toggle between
    different camera views, rotate buildings and see their city in ways they
    never imagined. And, for the first time in a Zynga game, they can also
    flip a switch to make it nighttime, or daytime.
  *Hustle and bustle – Like a real city, CityVille 2 features unexpected
    events. From realistic fires and explosions to vehicle breakdowns and
    traffic jams, players must respond with their city's finest. Each
    interactive and dynamic vehicle serves a special purpose – police cars
    catch criminals, power trucks repair outages and fire trucks put out
    four-alarm blazes – and put players in the driver's seat of each vehicle.
  *Cast of characters – CityVille 2 features a group of colorful characters
    that send players on a series of fun and challenging quests tied to a
    mystery "whodunit" storyline that's sparked by an explosion at the city's
    Mayoral Estate. Some of the city's movers and shakers include Rosemary
    Escarole, a community activist; Kurt Steele, a wealthy industrialist; and
    Tre, a reality TV star wannabe.

Current players of the original CityVille – which celebrates its two year
anniversary in November – will also continue to have new ways to play as Zynga
rolls out new expansions and features in the coming months. Both CityVille 2
and CityVille have dedicated teams working to bring players new experiences
and new ways to share in each game.

CityVille 2 will be available in 15 languages at launch, including: English,
Danish, Dutch, German, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Swedish, Thai, Turkish,
French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and traditional Chinese. The game is
alsoZynga'sthird to be developed for Adobe® Flash® Player 11 utilizing Stage
