SHADOW and BANDAI NAMCO Europe Announce Technological Partnership

BANDAI NAMCO Europe used Shadow technologies and expertise to run international press and creators previews on Elden Ring from the cloud

March 3rd, 2022 ago

Paris, France – March 3rd, 2022 – Today, SHADOW announces its technological partnership with BANDAI NAMCO Europe. The cloud computing company's services and expertise were provided to run ELDEN RING's preview program for the EMEA region, from the cloud. The grand fantasy Action-RPG global gaming hit developed by FromSoftware Inc. and produced by BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. was released February 25th.

Journalists and creators have been able to play the title in a secure and stable environment, from the cloud, thanks to SHADOW’s cutting-edge business-to-business dedicated virtual machines. Stability and performance were all the more important for an experience from creators known for their precise, frame-by-frame signature melee combat.

This partnership follows first test runs on previous BANDAI NAMCO Europe produced titles, such as Little Nightmares II and The Dark Pictures Anthology, and lead towards other exciting collaborations from various natures around business-to-business cloud-based innovations. We are eager to reveal more in the coming months.

We are proud to support one of the biggest game campaigns of 2022 with our technology, allowing journalists and talents to connect via the cloud and play this unique title from the coziness of their home,” explained Eric Sèle, CEO at SHADOW. “This showcases our ability to innovate and opens what will be a great year for our company, for both our consumers and business partners.”

"At Bandai Namco Europe, we've been impressed with what SHADOW can provide, both for B2B as well as B2C," said Wouter van Vugt, Director of PR, Communications and Events at BANDAI NAMCO Europe, "We started working with SHADOW in 2019, and we've been able to evolve the service they provide in close collaboration with their magnificent team, and we see no limits for the future!"

As SHADOW’s global reboot takes shape, we are hard at work in order to update our community in the next few months. 2022 will be a massive year for SHADOW. Stay tuned.
