BEIJING, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Limited ("Changyou" or the
"Company") (NASDAQ: CYOU), a leading online game developer and operator in
China, today announced that it began open beta testing of Battlefield™ Online,
the Company's first licensed online first-person shooter game ("FPS") on
November 15, 2012.


Battlefield™ Online is licensed from Electronic Arts, and is a Chinese online
game version of the classic Battlefield™ franchise. The game breaks away from
traditional FPS gameplay, utilizing jet fighters, tanks and even aircraft
carriers as the main instruments of warfare, while firearms and ammunitions
function as auxiliary weaponry. The game allows players to not only compete as
small teams in Team Death Match and Capture mode, but also to participate in
large-scale combat with up to 100 players in a 50 vs. 50 battlefield.
Additionally, Battlefield™ Online features different infantry classes. Players
can select from four classes including "medic," "antitank soldier," "engineer"
and "sniper" when joining a combat or before re-spawn. The battlefields in
the game are portrayals of real-life battle settings and even the parameters
of the military vehicles in the game are based on reality as well.

Mr. Dewen Chen, Changyou's president and chief operations officer, commented,
"The FPS game market is an established market in China, and players demand for
diverse and unique gameplay experiences is expanding. Battlefield™  Online
contains unique features like large-size battlefields and military vehicles
that we believe will appeal to more advanced FPS players. Battlefield™ Online
is Changyou's first FPS game, through which the company will further enrich
and diversify our game portfolio and attract more FPS players with innovative
gameplay, ultimately further expanding our user base."
