New Australian gaming network provides local ISP-based servers for PC gamers
Adelaide, December 18th 2015: A new Australian based gaming network will soon be launched as a joint venture between local internet service provider, EscapeNet and media outlet, Player Attack, forges ahead.
The new gaming network will cater for the thousands of online PC gamers left stranded after recent closures of other Australian ISP-based gaming services. The network will launch with game servers running on the national EscapeNet network, with Player Attack providing community support, a pool of moderators and the network’s editorial department.
“We look forward to the launch of the EscapeNet Player Attack network and the rebirth of ISP based gaming networks in Australia,” says Stavros Patiniotis, Managing Director at EscapeNet. “Gaming is a big part of peoples online entertainment; in conjunction with Player Attack, we seek to deliver a high quality, low latency network for Aussie gamers.”
“Player Attack was created with the aim of filling a niche in the local gaming community,” says Jessica Citizen, Player Attack editrix. “Originally, that meant covering news that others didn’t, but supporting Australian servers is the logical next step! With the launch of the Player Attack Games Network, we will deliver a complete gaming experience, combining news and reviews with our own optimized servers for games like Counter-Strike, Team Fortress 2 and The Mean Greens. It’s an exciting extension to our current website and television show.”
EscapeNet is an independent, South Australian based, ISP delivering ADSL/NBN broadband services and general telecommunications nationally. Formed in 1996, EscapeNet recently acquired its Carrier License to expand its direct reach. The national EscapeNet network centres around the core data centre facilities of Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney with interconnects and peering arrangements to ensure great local connectivity.
Player Attack was created by Kingsley Foreman and Jessica Citizen in 2010. The media outlet currently produces a successful TV show along with its popular website PlayerAttack.com. Player Attack presents the latest gaming news, reviews, features and interviews with a focus on local gaming. With experience forged in the early days of the now defunct Internode Games Network (IGN), Player Attack has succeeded in becoming a highly engaging and well-respected hub for Australian gamers.
