|SEOUL, Korea – July 12th, 2012 – WEBZEN, the leading free-to-play online game publisher from Korea, today announced the launch of the ¡°WEBZEN Hub¡± in collaboration with Overwolf, a software company specializing in adding a rich layer of social functionality to games. The WEBZEN Hub (powered by Overwolf) includes a wide set of gaming features accessible to users while playing their favorite games.

¡°Overwolf provides connection to the world while in game, you can send messages, check emails, surf web, voice chat and more.¡± said Jihun Lee, Head of Global Publishing. ¡°We hope to see stronger community by adopting Overwolf service for WEBZEN portal users.¡±
¡°WEBZEN is one of the biggest and the most prestigious free-to-play online game publishers in the world,¡± said Uri Marchand, CEO of Overwolf. ¡°Together, we hope to bring Overwolf¡¯s social features to WEBZEN¡¯s amazing community of users, and enter markets where our presence has not been dominant, until now.¡±
