Comic Book Writer Extraordinaire Gail Simone
to Develop the In-Game Narrative

July 19, 2016, North Hollywood, CA: F84 Games (, Dynamite Entertainment, and Red Sonja, LLC are pleased to announce an exciting new partnership that will see Red Sonja, the She-Devil with a Sword, brought to life as a playable character in a dedicated, action-packed, and narrative-driven game. Sharing the news in lead up to Comic-Con International expo, Red Sonja fans will be happy to hear that the multi-format game will be ready for release this upcoming winter 2016/2017.

The stunning new game will be based on the acclaimed comic book published by Dynamite Entertainment, with the series' award-winning writer Gail Simone also confirmed to spearhead the plotlines, characters, and world. Collaborating with F84 Games, Simone's take on the fearless warrior of Hyrkania will present an authentic and seamless continuation of her stories - putting fans straight into an interactive video game version of the Red Sonja comic books.

"There're two things I love in this world without question, and those things are video games and Red Sonja," says Gail Simone. "Gaming is such a huge part of my life, it's what I do for relaxation, socialization, and inspiration, and my game and console collection is a terrifying sight to behold. Mixing my favorite character, the She-Devil With A Sword, with my life-long love of games is a dream come true. We plan on making this a bloody, sexy, funny good time, full of brutal swordplay, cackling villains, and horrendous monsters, all seen through Sonja's trademark wit. I cannot wait."

"Red Sonja is the kind of character you want to walk a mile in her boots; it is the perfect franchise to turn into a video game," said Luke Lieberman, President of Red Sonja, LLC. "We've waited for the perfect partnership and believe Jeff Hardy and F84 Games have a phenomenal vision for the game. Once Gail agreed to be the dungeon master for this adventure, I knew we had something special on our hands."

"We have had great commercial and critical success with Gail Simone's run on Red Sonja and her involvement helps bring that energy and excitement to the game. It's gratifying to work with F84 Games to create such a fantastic game. Fans of Red Sonja will truly be in awe with what we have planned for them," said Nick Barrucci, Publisher and CEO of Dynamite Entertainment. "From the mythology, to Sonja's characteristics and fight style, to the minute details of the Hyrkanian villages - the game will really be a truly immersive experience."

"We're thrilled to be crafting this new Red Sonja experience in partnership with Luke and Dynamite," commented Jeff Hardy, CEO of F84 Games. "The upcoming game will be a great way to bring new fans into the universe. With Gail Simone's poweful narrative, we feel the game will be truly engaging and bring the authentic Red Sonja quality that fans have come to expect."
