Le groupe Lady Antebellum célèbre les fêtes de fin d'annee dans le jeu "The OregonTrail: American Settler" de Gameloft

PARIS, December 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Les fans de The Oregon Trail : American Settler vont pouvoir interagir avec le groupe aux 7 Grammy Awards qui fait une apparition dans la dernière mise à jour du jeu à l'occasion des fêtes.

Gameloft, Capitol Records et Lady Antebellum annoncent un partenariat international pour célébrer la sortie du dernier album du groupe Lady Antebellum, On This Winter's Night,  en offrant aux joueurs de nouveaux contenus pendant un temps limité dans le populaire jeu The Oregon Trail: American Settler.

La mise à jour du jeu The Oregon Trail: American Settler permet aux joueurs d'interagir avec le groupe Lady Antebellum de façon inédite. En effet, les membres du trio composé d'Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley et Dave Haywood donneront tous les trois des quêtes aux utilisateurs. Après avoir été chargé de construire une "salle de concert", le joueur pourra visionner les derniers clips du groupe réalisés pour l'album On This Winter's Night. Le joueur sera également accueilli par une vidéo de bienvenue exclusive du groupe.

Cette collaboration illustre l'importance grandissante des jeux digitaux et sociaux dans l'industrie du divertissement. Ainsi, Gameloft offre à ses partenaires une nouvelle plateforme pour communiquer avec les consommateurs en leur apportant de nouveaux contenus. Que le joueur connaisse déjà le groupe ou non, il pourra découvrir leur musique grâce à un nouveau moyen ludique et interagir avec lui.

"Gameloft est fière d'offrir à ses partenaires un moyen innovant de toucher les utilisateurs à travers ses jeux et d'offrir une expérience qui combine tous les éléments de l'univers d'une marque et les met en avant dans un contexte adapté," déclare Baudouin Corman, Vice-Président Publishing Americas. "Lady Antebellum est l'un des groupes country les plus populaires du moment et nous sommes très heureux de leur offrir un nouveau moyen de promouvoir leur album des fêtes de fin d'année, tout en offrant à nos joueurs un contenu de grande qualité en rapport avec l'univers du jeu."

"Je suis toujours à la recherche de nouvelles stratégies marketing et, grâce à Gameloft, nous disposons désormais d'un support extraordinaire pour faire découvrir le groupe Lady Antebellum et son album des fêtes "On This Winter's Night" sur un support numérique vaste et en pleine expansion,"  déclare Dawn Gates, Vice-Président Digital Marketing chez UMG Nashville.

Sorti en novembre 2011, The Oregon Trail: American Settler permet aux joueurs de s'installer dans l'Ouest américain après un long périple sur la piste de l'Oregon. À l'occasion de la sortie du nouvel album de Lady Antebellum, On This Winter's Night, Gameloft intègre pour la toute première fois un groupe musical à un de ses jeux.

Lady Antebellum a récemment sorti son premier album de Noël, On This Winter's Night, et terminé sa tournée Own The Night 2012 World Tour pour laquelle le groupe a reçu le "Breakthrough Award" de Billboard. Durant sa tournée, le groupe a parcouru les États-Unis, le Canada, l'Europe et l'Australie, et le trio gagnant de plusieurs GRAMMY Awards s'est donné en spectacle devant plus d'un million de fans de 11 pays différents sur trois continents. Lady Antebellum a joué à guichets fermés dans les plus grandes salles de concert du monde comme à Los Angeles, à Chicago, deux soirs à New York, à Toronto, à Londres, trois soirs à l'opéra de Sydney. Les trois membres du groupe ont même fait la première partie d'un concert de leur idole, Bruce Springsteen, au festival Hard Rock Calling de Londres. L'album Own The Night s'est directement placé en tête du Billboard's Top 200 à sa sortie et contient déjà deux singles numéro 1 des ventes, "We Owned The Night" et "Just A Kiss." Le trio possède déjà un palmarès impressionnant avec plus de 11 millions d'albums vendus à travers le monde, 7 GRAMMY Awards et six singles qui ont atteint la première place des ventes.

The Oregon Trail: American Settler est actuellement disponible en téléchargement gratuit sur l'App Store et/ou Google Play.

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data profession...

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

In his session at @Th...
Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions.

In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...
There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
