Liu Dejian, Chairman and Executive Director of NetDragon, said, As a major
product of NetDragon, Conquer Online, with its authentic oriental style
characterized by chivalrous swordsman, has gained wide popularity among players
since its launch at home in China and abroad. The brand-new English expansion
pack is enriched with innovations such as steed system and clan system which
have been long anticipated by players. I believe Raiding Clans will not only
meet the needs of our faithful players, but also enhance NetDragon’s
outstanding performance in overseas markets in 2009. Looking ahead, the Group
will continue to root itself in RD, adhere to its tradition of developing
overseas markets, and provide its players around the world with more and more
wonderful entertainment experiences.

operations in the American market. Since its launch in 2003, Conquer has been
operated in the North American market and released in several languages,
successively Chinese, English, Spanish, and French, and is played in over 100
countries and regions. With deepened RD cooperation with global interactive
entertainment giants including Disney Online, Electronic Arts and Ubisoft, the
Group expects to further open up overseas markets and enable more players to
experience the charm of oriental online games.
