NACON PRESENTS AN AMBITIOUS LINEUP AND ANNOUNCES TWO NEW GAMES

NACON has confirmed its status as a major mid-publisher and creator of standard-setting accessories

Paris (France), 18 May 2022 – The latest edition of Bigben Week opened its doors on Monday. This major event for the group is the perfect occasion to present its products and objectives to the media and international partners. NACON, the group's gaming brand, held a press conference to announce all of its news and to explain how it is changing.

The last time the event was held – in 2019, due to the health crisis – BIGBEN presented its soaring ambitions for the years to come. Bigben Week is an opportunity to highlight the company's strong growth over the last three years along with the major changes it has undergone.

AN EFFECTIVE STRATEGY

NACON’s March 2020 listing on the stock market raised more than €100 million, reinforcing the company's ambitions and resources.

Over the course of three years, NACON acquired no fewer than 9 studios. With the latest acquisitions of Midgar Studios and Daedalic Entertainment, a total of 16 studios have now joined the fold. The RIG brand, renowned worldwide for its premium gaming headsets, integrated NACON in March 2020, bringing all of its know-how with it. The strategy has significantly increased NACON's weight in the video game industry, providing it with several different areas of expertise in games and accessories. This has most notably resulted in an increase in turnover, from €113.1 million in 2019 to €155.9 million today, among other consequences.

TWO EXCLUSIVE ANNOUNCEMENTS

Bigben Week is also the perfect occasion to announce the addition of new titles to NACON's games catalogue. The studio Spiders revealed GreedFall 2, the new entry in the successful franchise, which has sold more than 2 million units. The other major new game concerns the development studio KT Racing and the next WRC, entitled "WRC Generations", with a planned 13 October release.

THE MOST AMBITIOUS VIDEO GAME LINEUP EVER

Action-adventure

Some of this year's most ambitious projects are in the action-adventure genre, including The Lord of the RingsTM:GollumTM. With a planned 2022 release, this epic experience, created by the studio Daedalic, has been revealed at Bigben Week for the first time.

On 19 May, Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong, the story-based RPG from the studio Big Bad Wolf will be released. It combines exploration of a variety of environments, carefully crafted dialogue, complex puzzles and a multi-branching story in which each choice has consequences.

Steelrising, the combat-oriented action RPG from the studio Spiders, has the player take on the role of the central figure in an alternative universe in which Paris trembles under the yoke of a tyrannical King. As Aegis, the player must untangle the webs of intrigue to bring an end to the madness of one man and to ensure the French Revolution reaches a triumphant conclusion. Some of the story elements in the game, scheduled for 8 September, are revealed in a story trailer: what if the French Revolution had failed? And what if King Louis XVI, gone mad, had developed an army of automats capable of stifling the people's anger? https://youtu.be/LIQHKd7Pzxk

Jonathan Jacques-Belletête, Creative Director of the studio Rogue Factor, is attending Bigben Week to talk about his new, recently announced project, Hell is Us. The game is pioneering a new genre, with a blend of action and exploration, requiring players to use judgement and curiosity to progress through the story.

Blood Bowl 3 (Cyanide) offers fans of the Warhammer universe and tactical games a perfect cocktail of sport, strategy and heroic fantasy.

Clash: Artifacts of Chaos (ACE Team) is bringing a unique blend of exploration and unarmed combat to NACON's action-adventure segment, in the mysterious and quirky world of Zenozoik.

Zorro The Chronicles (BKOM) marks the return of the famous vigilante in a game intended for both nostalgic parents and young players taking their first steps in action-adventure gaming. The official video game adaptation of the animated series is scheduled for release on 16 June.

Racing

Alongside the development of Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown by the KT Racing teams, NACON has announced WRC Generations. The latest entry in the series, scheduled for 13 October, includes a wide range of new features, such as the introduction of hybrid cars, several engine mapping configurations and a new league system.

Sport 

This year NACON is offering several disciplines, including Session: Skate Sim, a skateboard simulation with innovative gameplay, which takes the player into 90s-era skateboarding. Also on display, the cycling games Tour de France 2022 and Pro Cycling Manager 2022 are offering a glimpse of their gameplay prior to their 9 June release date.

Simulation

With Chef Life, NACON's Simulation cornerstone features a dash of immersion and culinary creativity. The game, which incorporates official elements of the MICHELIN Guide, lets each player design their own dishes while they create and manage the restaurant of their dreams.
