In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

ENCORE DECLARES WAR ON TERRORISM!
SIGNS WITH BLACK OPS TO PUBLISH FUGITIVE HUNTER


Game blends genres and takes direct aim at Osama bin Laden

Los Angeles - Oct. 15, 2003 - Encore, a majority-owned subsidiary of Navarre
Corporation (NASDAQ: NAVR), today announced that it has signed an exclusive
North American agreement with Black Ops Entertainment, LLC to publish
Fugitive Hunter: War on Terror for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment
system. This game blends first-person shooter (FPS) and fighter genres in a
hunt for terrorists and other criminals; in one of the key missions, players
track and capture Osama bin Laden - America's most wanted terrorist.

Scheduled for release to major retail outlets nationwide this holiday
season, Fugitive Hunter: War on Terror is expected to retail for
approximately $30.

Said Michael Bell, Encore's CEO, "In today's world, we have to deal with the
daily threat of global and domestic terrorism. For most people, there is no
real way to release some of the frustration and anger they feel toward the
direct source of this terror. Fugitive Hunter: War on Terror allows them to
take out some of this frustration and feel a sense of satisfaction by
bringing fugitives to justice."

Added John Botti, President and CEO of Black Ops, "Encore is the perfect
publishing partner for Black Ops; not only because of their ability to take
on a potential blockbuster title like Fugitive Hunter, but also because of
their enthusiasm for this game that we have spent years developing.
Fugitive Hunter combines my personal experiences of living in a crime-ridden
ghetto with actual research data from the FBI, the U.S. Marine Corps, and
the Santa Monica Police Department. "

Game Takes Aim at Osama bin Laden

In Fugitive Hunter: War on Terror, players assume the role of Jake Seaver, a
former Navy Seal and current Fugitive Recovery Agent. The story begins
during a covert mission on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border in 1999.
Seaver's helicopter is shot down and his team is lost in the crash. Barely
escaping with his life, Seaver returns to Miami, the headquarters for the
Criminal Interdiction and Fugitive Recovery (CIFR). He must now focus on
his next mission, although he never forgets the failed mission and the
deaths of his teammates. Seaver throws himself back into his work, taking on new assignments,
gathering information, and tracking down fugitives around the globe.

Traveling from Miami, Utah and Paris to the Caribbean, Seaver finds a common
thread between his various missions and the fugitives he hunts, ultimately
coming full circle to where it all started - Afghanistan.

Fugitive Hunter's key features include:

· Players track and capture 11 terrorists, drug cartel leaders, militia
leaders and bank robbers, with Osama bin Laden - America's most wanted
terrorists - as one of the key targets

· The game combines FPS and fighting genres with players moving seamlessly
from FPS to hand-to-hand fighting modes

· 19 different missions of combat, covert operations and fact finding

· Key members of the Matrix stunt team were used for realistic fight action,
including Keanu Reaves' stunt double

· Players have access to 10 deadly weapons with multiple modifications and
ammo types

· Will Lyman, the voice of PBS' Nova and Frontline and currently starring in
ABC's Threat Matrix, introduces each mission

· Multiple locations include Afghanistan, Miami, Utah, Paris and the jungles
of the Caribbean as players roam the world in search of America's most
wanted

· Fugitives are modeled on America's most wanted criminals
