CPL Game Severity Announced

According to this PDF format press release on the CPL website, former Ritual Entertainment studio director Tom Mustaine will head up an effort to create a new multiplayer game called Severity. The game, to be released on PC and console systems, will focus on team-vs-team and 1vs1 modes, and will feature extensive support for live and online competitions. The CPL expects to start testing the game by late 2007.
"Severity will be the first videogame conceived from the ground up to ensure the growth and appeal of multiplayer game competitions worldwide," said Tom Mustaine, Director of Game Development at the CPL's new studio.

Severity is built on technology created by developer id Software and includes enhanced tournament support, spectator modes, as well as detailed player and tournament statistics tracking. By leveraging the enthusiastic community and practical experiences of the CPL, Severity is uniquely positioned to set new standards while raising the bar for competitive multiplayer games.
