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.

TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. Over the summer Gartner released its much anticipated annual Hype Cycle report and the big news is that Internet of Things has now replaced Big Data as the most hyped technology. Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. Every other IT news item seems to be about IoT and its implications on the future of digital busines...
