SAN JOSE, Calif - (December 5, 2007) --- On the heels of the introduction of EA SPORTST NASCAR® Racing and America's Army, GLOBAL VR today announced that it will debut another soon to be hit title, Blazing Angels.  Derived from UbiSoft's blockbuster game, GLOBAL VR has taken one of the most exciting WWII flying games ever developed and created an experience that is unparalleled in today's coin-op market.  Gaming pilots will sit in the replicated cockpit of a WWII fighter plane and fly combat missions in some of the greatest air battles of the war.  Players can enter the action flying the skies over London during the Battle of Britain, defending Parliament from an attack by the Luftwaffe.  Exciting battles will follow over the North African Desert and in the South Pacific as players "dogfight" through the entire war. Pilots can maneuver their planes through dramatic 360 degrees turns as they attempt to out-wit, out-fly and outlast the enemy.

Known for its unique cabinet design, GLOBAL VR surpasses even its own expectations with Blazing Angels. Styled in true WWII fashion, this game's cabinet will be the center of attention in any location. When asked to comment about the upcoming game title, Jim DeRose, GLOBAL VR's President and CEO commented, "We have tested Blazing Angels thoroughly with our target audience and are convinced that this is a game that people are going to want to play.  During the course of testing, players commented that the excitement of flying and the realism provided by the amazingly beautiful graphics are light-years ahead of any other game they have played.  There is no matching the thrill of being in the midst of WWII combat action, and to make this game even more attractive, it is "green label", making it suitable for every location."

GLOBAL VR will be introducing Blazing Angels at ATEI to be held January 22nd - 24th at London's Earl's Court Exhibition Centre, where GLOBAL VR will occupy booth #2442. For more information or to schedule an appointment please contact GLOBAL VR at
