LAS VEGAS, NV and BASKING RIDGE, NJ — From the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Gameloft today announced Let’s Golf! 2 will be available on select 4G smartphones on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network.
Let’s Golf! 2 is Gameloft’s first high-definition game capable of being played over the air through the 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network. With faster download times, the game features multiplayer capabilities that can be accessed anytime without relying on a Wi-Fi connection.
“We are excited to bring Let’s Golf! 2 to the LTE network,” said Baudouin Corman, vice president of publishing, Americas, Gameloft. “The power of the LTE network coupled with one of Gameloft’s best games will make for an unparalleled gaming experience.”
“Our 4G LTE network brings multiplayer gaming to new heights,” said Jennifer Byrne, executive director, business development at Verizon Wireless. “Let’s Golf! 2 is a perfect example of a game that showcases the power of LTE, and we know our customers are looking forward to seeing more Gameloft games on the LTE network in the coming months.”
The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network, launched in December 2010, is the fastest, most advanced 4G network in the United States, providing speeds up to 10 times faster than Verizon Wireless’ 3G network. Consumer devices with a wide range of applications are expected to be available later this year. Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network currently reaches one-third of all Americans, with plans to expand the network to the company’s entire 3G coverage area over the next three years.
