NEW YORK, JULY 21, 2008 � History(TM) today announced the launch of the minisite for Jurassic Fight Club � live at www.history.com/jurassic � a new series that illustrates prehistory and depicts how dinosaurs hunted their prey, dissecting these battles and uncovering a predatory world far more calculated and complex than originally thought.

In addition to the game, the minisite will include a program synopsis, an episode guide for upcoming and archived episodes, a Dinopedia featuring an introduction to and stats for the featured dinosaurs, image gallery, discussion board, a multimedia gallery filled with wallpapers, posters and screensavers, and a three-tiered video player.

Jurassic Fight Club: Turf Wars allows players to take control of prehistoric creatures and assault their opponent with a wide variety of special moves and techniques, including ferocious lunges, vicious bites and punishing tail whips. The July15th pre-premiere debuts two dinosaurs. As the season progresses, the cast of characters will grow larger and larger, with new beasts hatching on August 19th and September 9th, allowing players to create their own epic showdowns. The detailed 3D models and lush backgrounds, pulled straight from the Jurassic Fight Club program, will bring these prehistoric brawlers back to life for an epic gaming experience.

The game was developed by This is Pop, the company that developed the highly successful, award winning Bible Fight Club game for Adult Swim.
