Asiasoft Online, an online gaming publisher in Southeast Asia headquartered in Thailand, recently announced the opening of its new Philippines office as part of its expansion plans to reach out to gamers in the region.
The local office, to be headed by Malaysian Keith Long, will be hiring additional local staff members to boost its marketing efforts in the country.
The online gaming operator also said the opening of Asiasoft Philippines will elevate the online gaming industry locally to greater heights with numerous popular titles set to launch in the coming months.
The Philippines office will kick start its services with Asiasoft’s current titles such as Alliance of Valiant Arms (AVA), a fast action high-definition First Person Shooter (FPS) game powered by Unreal Engine 3, Sudden Attack, the number one FPS game in Korea, and Chaos Online, Asiasoft’s first Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) title.
Asiasoft will also be launching a new football management game titled FC Manager soon.
?We see the potential of eSports and the burgeoning gaming scene here in the Philippines, therefore we decided to set up an office here to better serve the local gaming community,? Sherman Tan, chairman of Asiasoft, said in a statement.
“With the plethora of games in the line up, we hope that gamers here will be very excited and we look forward to their support as Asiasoft embarks on its journey.”
For this year, Asiasoft said it has also several plans in store to excite the local gamers, both young and old alike.
Other than launching free-to-play games for general enjoyment, those looking to fulfill their competitive streak can look forward to the series of tournaments that will be held across selected Internet cafes nationwide, leading up to the Asiasoft’s owned regional championship in January 2014, which will feature attractive cash prizes. The participating games will be AVA, Sudden Attack and Chaos Online.
Details about the tournaments will be released nearer to date. Interested gamers can check out the respective games’ websites and their Facebook fan pages for the latest news and updates.
