    Digital Illusions signs agreement with Trauma Studios
    Digital Illusions CE AB (publ) 2004-02-04
    Digital Illusions has begun collaboration with game developer Trauma Studios Inc. During one year Trauma will work on an upcoming product, together with Digital Illusions.


    Trauma Studios developed the popular mod* to Battlefield 1942, DesertCombat. The new collaboration is for one of Digital Illusions' previously announced projects. The Company estimates the costs for the collaboration to approximately 550 000 USD during a period of 12 months.

    - We understood the impact DesertCombat had quite early. This mod kept Battlefield's popularity in place during the last year, as well as helped us sell a considerable amount of games, says Patrick Söderlund, CEO, Digital Illusions.

    - We have established a close cooperation with Trauma, and now we have come to an exclusive agreement with them, says Patrick Söderlund, CEO, Digital Illusions.

    - We are delighted to be working with Digital Illusions on this project. Digital Illusions is one of the premier game development studios in the world and Battlefield 1942 is the best FPS game to be published in years. Everybody we have met at the company has been fantastic to work with and we are looking forward to collaborating with them on this project, says Frank DeLise, President, Trauma Studios Inc.

    * A mod is a kind of modification to a game already existing. With DesertCombat Trauma reprogrammed some parts of Battlefield 1942 and thereby created new environments and new features for the game. To be able to play a mod you need the actual game that the mod was developed for. This means mods push sales of video games.

    well, considering they started the mod. worked on it real hard and are now getting something inreturn. i dont know how thats sellin out. to me that sounds like buisness. they are far from sell outs. alot of game devs get there start like this. i think its tight that now that they are gettinf funds they can make a better mod that might come close to Battlefield Vietnam.

    yeah even tho EA aint the best company to create something for, it is the start that they are getting that matters. same with an acting career or Music career. you gotta start somewhere. in a few years they might end up make a great engine and great game.
