    For Immediate Release

    Project Entropia Upgrades to NetImmerse 4.0
    Integration of the latest version of NDL's engine nears completion

    Gothenburg, Sweden - May 30, 2001 - MindArk AB confirmed today that
    it is in the process of upgrading Project Entropia, its innovative
    science fiction-based persistent state online world, by implementing
    the NetImmerse 4.0 engine, the newest version of the 3D development
    toolkit from NDL.

    "Itīs never a simple process to make major technological changes in
    mid-project," stated Marketing Manager Patric Sundstrom. "However,
    our technology group is completely confident that providing support
    for bump-mapped reflection mapping, hardware character skinning,
    environment skinning and other features will allow for a definite
    step forward in terms of Project Entropiaīs graphical presentation.
    We expect implementation of NetImmerse 4.0 to be completed fairly
    soon, and we plan to release a new generation of screenshots soon
    after to show the difference."
