Wizard101 Thanks Service Members on Veterans Day
KingsIsle Entertainment offers unique in-game gift to military players and their families

PLANO, TEXAS (Nov. 2, 2009) – In honor of Veteran’s Day, Wizard101, the magic-themed Massively Multi-player Online game (MMO), is recognizing active and non-active U.S. military personnel with a special item their characters can use in the game.

The “Sword of Valor” item code and redemption instructions will be emailed to eligible players who register by November 12, 2009, at: www.wizard101.com/game/promotions/veteransday. The sword is available to new and existing player accounts. There is no fee to register, download or play the game.

“We’ve heard from military families who use Wizard101 as an online meeting place for friends and family when deployed or posted overseas,” said J. Todd Coleman, creative director of Wizard101. “Coming from a military family myself, I know that military service affects the entire family. We want to recognize our players – both kids and adults – with a special Veteran’s Day gift.”

Wizard101 can be downloaded at www.Wizard101.com and offers free game play for as long as players choose. Players seeking access to premium areas and items may purchase pre-paid cards in participating stores or purchase a subscription or Crowns online. New worlds, activities, pets and Wizard clothing are periodically added to the game, creating an ever-changing world with new things to do and see.

Wizard101 players enter the magical world of Wizard City as student Wizards setting out to hone their Wizard skills, cast spells and summon powerful creatures to fight evil forces. The characters and worlds of Wizard101 are influenced by literature, history and pop culture, giving the game a depth and quality appreciated by families and players of all ages.
