BEIJING--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--With the debut of CGDC 2010 approaching, the Organizing
Committee named an additional keynote speaker -- Faruk Yerli. Mr. Faruk Yerli is President and Managing
Director of Crytek, and he also serves on the consultancy panel for the annual animation, effects, games and
interactive event FMX. Let’s expect this keynote speaker to share with us his experience as a game expert.

Faruk Yerli

Topic:

West Meets East – Expanding Entertainment and Technology into Global Markets

Summary:

Faruk Yerli will share the growth story of Crytek, which crosses the differences in type, platform, geography and
culture to grow into a successful cross-field and cross-industry global digital entertainment technology company from
an unknown virtual team.

Based on the leading and innovating core technologies, tools and creation methods, Crytek has managed to help our
partners and our own development team to expand from the single mode of PC game development into new areas
including simulation, building design, visualization and host computer game platform, as well as the latest 3D
experience.

Faruk will also give suggestions on how China’s game teams could expand into the international markets and other
platforms, as well as develop in new areas. As China’s games are usually unique in their ideas, while the Chinese art
designers are highly talented, Crytek will suggest how to combine the two features to achieve the best results and
reduce risks in game development at the same time. Their combination is the best demonstration for integrating
Eastern and Western cultures and will lead to a worldwide success. In this regard, NCSoft’s Aion can be a good
example.

Crytek believes that in future, digital entertainment products that better integrate the Eastern history and artistic styles
and the advanced Western technologies will have more impacts on the world.

Speaker Profile:

Mr. Faruk Yerli is President and Managing Director of Crytek.

Faruk has been fond of computer games since he bought his first Commodore C64 computer in 1986. Faruk and his
two brothers founded Crytek in 1999, after he received the MBA degree in Marketing and Economics. Faruk
established and operated a market planning and marketing company when he was still in college. As Founder and
President of Crytek, Faruk is responsible for the operational management of the studio. Faruk also serves on the
consultancy panel for the annual animation, effects, games and interactive event FMX.
