BEIJING, Nov. 8, 2013

BEIJING, Nov. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- KongZhong Corporation (NASDAQ: KONG), a
leading provider of digital entertainment services for consumers in the PRC,
announced today its strategic partnership with well known British car racing
game developer Eutechnyx, where KongZhong will have exclusive rights to
publish and operate the simulated car racing game <Auto Club Revolution>
("ACR") in Mainland China.

Auto Club Revolution is a free-to-play simulated online racing game and car
enthusiast community built in collaboration with the motor industry. Featuring
officially licensed cars from over 50 of the world's leading motor
manufacturers, including BMW, Ford, VW, McLaren, Toyota and others, it
delivers a best-in-class racing experience to the free-to-play market while
providing a social platform for owning, customizing and enjoying cars online.

Through Kongzhong's success with World of Tanks, the partners believe the
demand for a free-to-play online car racing simulation game, playable on the
PC, will be high in the mainland China market where there is limited selection
for Chinese players due to the lack of console game platforms.Where World of
Tanks is a team-based massively multiplayer online action game dedicated to
armored warfare, which includes more than 200 historically accurate armored
vehicles from military history, ACR will bring hundreds of cars and race
tracks with realistic detail and accuracy similar to other car simulation
racing games that can only be played on the consoles. Moreover, the partners
believe that as China has become the largest automotive market in the world,
the interest for ACR should be high.

As the market leader of military genre online games in China, KongZhong is
always strategically positioning itself to expand into new under-served market
segments. According to CNNIC, by the end of 2012, the China online game market
revenues reached 60.13 billion RMB with 336 million game players. However,
to-date, there has never been a world-class free-to-play simulated car online
racing game in China and through this partnership, KongZhong and Eutechnyx
will seek to fulfill this significant gap in the market place.

Through this partnership, KongZhong also expects to bring innovations to
Chinese online game and automotive cross marketing. In their overseas
operation and marketing, ACR has cooperated with many of the world's top car
brands by leveraging the realistic graphics of vehicles in ACR to supplement
auto shows, auto showrooms and car portals by allowing players to "test drive"
the newest sports and racing cars. With over 25 years of car racing game
development experience Eutechnyx has gained the trust of the world's leading
car manufacturers and this partnership will seek to leverage the car content
in ACR to explore and create a new business model in China with these
manufacturers.

Eutechnyx's CEO, Mr. Darren Jobling said, "We are excited to have KongZhong,
as one of the leading online game providers in China, be our partner to
introduce the first free-to-play simulated car online racing game to China.
This is indeed a great honor for Eutechnyx. Eutechnyx has very good
partnerships with many of the world-class auto brands and is always striving
to bring the best product to Chinese players. Through our close cooperation
with KongZhong, Eutechnyx hopes ACR can bring Chinese players the best online
car racing game experiences."

KongZhong's Chairman and CEO, Mr. Wang Leilei said, "Eutechnyx is a world-wide
famous game developer with many of its games published by the console game
industry's leading players. Leveraging on Eutechnyx' 25 year racing game
development experience and KongZhong's mainland China operation and marketing
experience, we believe ACR will have great success in China by bringing
Chinese players the first free-to-play simulated online racing game."
