The Sydney based distributor has announced a newly formed partnership with Skybound Games, a division of Skybound Entertainment (The Walking Dead, Outcast, Invincible).
Five Star will act as the exclusive distributor across Australia and New Zealand for their portfolio of gaming titles, including the upcoming releases of The Long Dark and Slime Rancher.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be partnering with Skybound Games as their exclusive distribution partner in ANZ,” said Darren Macbeth, Managing Director, Five Star Games. “We are looking forward to working with Skybound Games to grow their expanding portfolio of games.”
Mark Stanger, General Manager, Skybound Games EMEA added, “Darren and his team have a wealth of experience in the ANZ markets covering both physical and digital channels and we are delighted to have the opportunity of working with them.”
Five Star Games will begin working directly with Skybound Games to expand the company’s overall reach in the Australian market, beginning with Skybound Games’ first releases, apocalyptic-survival adventure The Long Dark, developed by Hinterland, and first-person slime wrangling experience Slime Rancher, developed by Monomi Park.
The Long Dark and Slime Rancher will release in retail stores on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in September.
