INDY BREAKS INTO A NEW DIMENSION IN HIS BOLDEST GAMING ADVENTURE,
THE ACTION-FILLED INDIANA JONES‚ AND THE INFERNAL MACHINE‘ FROM
LUCASARTS

The Famed Archeologist in the Rumpled Fedora Returns to
Whip Up New Real-Time 3D Thrills for PC

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. -- May 28, 1998 -- Itís 1947 and the Cold War is just beginning its insidious
spread. Soviet agents have been ordered by the Russian government to search the ruins of the fabled
Tower of Babel for an ancient machine that could unlock a legendary inter-dimensional gate. If
activated, the device could unleash a deadly force and swing the balance of power away from the
West. Only one person is capable of preventing a plan so terrifying and dangerous: the renowned
archeologist, Indiana Jones.

Yes, Indy is back in Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine, a new real-time 3D action-adventure
from LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC, expected to release first quarter 1999 for PC. Fraught
with all the action and intrigue worthy of a classic Indiana Jones film, the game will lock players in a
thrilling race around the globe to thwart the Sovietsí frantic search for clues to the mysterious Infernal
Machine.

"Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine is a sharp departure from LucasArtsí previous Indy titles,"
says Project Leader Hal Barwood, who last guided Indy to mythical Atlantis. "Indiana Jones defines the
very notion of action hero, perfect for a game in the real-time 3D action-adventure genre."

The game begins when the CIA, led by Indyís old friend Sophia Hapgood, brings him alarming evidence
that a Soviet physicist, Gennadi Volodnikov, has been searching the site of the Tower of Babel for
evidence of an ancient machine that can open the door to a parallel dimension called the Aetherium.
Volodnikov and his Communist henchmen are anxiously trying to reassemble the machine, but need to
find several crucial parts to get it working. The missing parts, scattered throughout the far corners of
the globe, are the targets of Indyís quest.

Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine takes Indy to all the exotic locales players expect in an
adventure this spectacular, ranging from the ruins of ancient Babylon and mysterious Tian Shan
Mountain region in Kazakstan to the Aztec pyramids in Teotihaucan and beyond.

Staying one step ahead of the Russians will require players to solve a variety of challenging mechanical
puzzles. Interior sites, such as temples, tombs and dungeons, are incredibly expansive, and allow for
thorough exploration, puzzle solving and intense combat.

The gameís unique geographical locations also serve as settings for several special action sequences
that range from guiding a raft through an exciting descent of white-water rapids, a spectacular off-road
Jeep chase through the jungle to an exhilarating rollercoaster-like mine car ride.

Indy has the ability to whip, crawl, run, leap, swim, swing, and climb through each level. Heíll rely upon
his trusted whip, a complement of weapons (automatic pistols, rifles, a bazooka, hand grenades and
satchel charges) and useful collected objects to defeat the gameís battalions of communist agents,
soldiers and other-worldly adversaries. In addition, each machine part Indy finds confers a certain
magical power that is necessary to help him complete subsequent chapters.

Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine will feature solo, cooperative multiplayer scenarios, and
various LAN and Internet gameplay modes. The game is designed to run under Windows 95, Windows
98 and Windows NT 5.0 and will require 3D acceleration.
