- Today, Streamline Media Group (Streamline), a global video game and Metaverse developer, announced the appointment of Stephen Rubin Esq. as its latest advisory board member. Rubin, who recently retired from a 52-year career in law, has devoted much of his career to the video game industry as an expert in licensing and publishing agreements and intellectual property (IP) laws for the U.S. and international video game developers, and software and internet companies.

"This is an exciting time for the video games industry and IP law," says Alexander Fernandez , CEO and Co-Founder of Streamline. "Steve has been a pioneer of video game law since the 1990s. He basically wrote the book on how deals get papered and studios sold. The Metaverse needs his type of experience to ensure fair and equitable relationships are the norm, not the exception, and we can't wait to work together."

Rubin is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University Law School. He began his career as a law clerk to a federal appeals court judge before becoming an attorney in the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. He later became a tenured law professor and concurrently administrative law judge by appointment of the Florida attorney general. Rubin was a partner in two national law firms before launching his firm in 1988; he retains active status in The State Bar of California . He is a life member of the American Law Institute and participates in its Member Consultative Group on copyright law.

"Over the last 40 years, the notion of interactive games has transformed from shopping mall arcades into the seamlessly immersive experiences unfolding today," said Rubin. "What's next? Engaging in the answer is the watchword of Streamline, in what is shaping to be the most profound and explosive phase yet of digital interactivity, the Metaverse. My confidence - and excitement too - in Streamline's role in solving the 'what's next' riddle comes from knowledge as its former counsel and my enduring friendship with its principals."

Rubin has written extensively about antitrust, regulation, video games, and intellectual property. He has also been a frequent speaker at law and industry conferences.

Rubin joins the advisory board following the recent additions of David G. Wilson of the James Bond franchise, and Shawn Layden , gaming industry veteran and former Chairman of PlayStation Worldwide Studios.

World of Outlaws: Dirt Racing Brings "The Greatest Show on Dirt" to PlayStation, Xbox Consoles in September 2022

Pre-orders begin August 15 featuring World of Outlaws legend Sammy Swindell ; base game and Gold Edition available

The World of Outlaws returns to console gaming for the first time in over a decade on September 27 as World of Outlaws: Dirt Racing hits the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. The official game of "The Greatest Show on Dirt" features six different dirt series, from the premier World of Outlaws NOS Energy Sprint Cars and CASE Construction Equipment Late Models to four DIRTcar classes, and more than 40 tracks, including Eldora Speedway, Knoxville Raceway, and Volusia Speedway Park. Pre-orders open on August 15 at worldofoutlawsgame.com with three-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car champion Sammy Swindell included as a special bonus for pre-orders only.

World of Outlaws: Dirt Racing is the latest dirt racing-themed title from developer Monster Games, but its first since being acquired by iRacing in late 2021. The new title takes the established Monster Games platform to a new level, with the addition of car and track models, sounds, and multiplayer technology from iRacing to elevate the authenticity and gameplay experience. All-new physics, also tuned by iRacing, and a retooled, more competitive AI add to the challenge, with real-world driver feedback held at a premium throughout the development process.

"We're thrilled to bring World of Outlaws back to console gaming with World of Outlaws: Dirt Racing ," said Monster Games founder and general manager Rich Garcia . "With the addition of iRacing resources to the established Monster platform, as well as the support of World of Outlaws, this is the most realistic, challenging, and most importantly, fun dirt racing experience ever seen on the PlayStation or Xbox. We can't wait for dirt racing fans to go wheel-to-wheel at Eldora, Knoxville, and more this fall!"

"Many of our fans have been asking for a World of Outlaws console game, and now through our partnership with iRacing we're able to deliver," World of Outlaws CEO Brian Carter said. "Whether it's PlayStation or Xbox, fans can race against World of Outlaws drivers in the most realistic game available. The team at iRacing and Monster Games has really developed an authentic option to see what it's like to race on dirt against the best in the business."

For those looking to chart a unique course through the world of dirt racing, World of Outlaws: Dirt Racing is infinitely customizable, with no shortage of fun to be had for players of all backgrounds. The all-new Career Mode structure sees drivers start as a local rookie, working hard to upgrade their equipment and become more competitive as they look to advance to the national World of Outlaws tours. Drivers can race any vehicle available to them in Career Mode at any time, and with an all-new Car Creator that includes more layers and shapes, can bring just about any design imaginable to the track.

No matter your dirt racing car or track preference, World of Outlaws: Dirt Racing has you covered. Sprint car racers can do battle in the 305, 360, and World of Outlaws 410 Sprint Car divisions, while World of Outlaws Super Late Models, Pro Late Models, and Street Stocks are available for those who prefer fenders. Alongside the 13 licensed tracks that will appear in the game, the remaining tracks pay homage to the soul of dirt racing in America with various lengths, layouts, and locales.

Three-time World of Outlaws NOS Energy Sprint Car Series champion Brad Sweet and 2015 CASE Late Model Series champion Shane Clanton adorn the cover, and the duo headlines a list of real-world drivers who are both playable in single-player modes and appear as opponents in Career Mode. Those who pre-order World of Outlaws: Dirt Racing will also unlock Sammy Swindell , winner of three World of Outlaws Sprint Car championships and nearly 400 Sprint Car Features in his illustrious career.

World of Outlaws: Dirt Racing will retail for $49.99 , while the Gold Edition will be available for $69.99 . The Gold Edition features all additional downloadable content for the remainder of calendar year 2022, a $35 value; 2022 DLC items will include Limaland Motorsports Park, Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55, and Lucas Oil Speedway, as well as two additional DIRTcar classes, UMP Modifieds and Super DIRTcar Big Block Modifieds.

AI Gaming and Esports Startup Regression Games Raises $4.2M in Seed Funding from NEA and a16z

Regression Games, the AI gaming and esports company, today announced it has closed $4.2M in seed funding led by New Enterprise Associates (NEA) with participation from Andreesen Horowitz (a16z), BBQ Capital, Roosh Ventures, and various angel investors to bring the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to gaming and esports. Regression Games plans to use the new capital to grow their engineering team and accelerate the development of their initial platform to test AI-driven gaming, in partnership with existing games and game studios.

Regression Games is building the platform and ecosystem to make AI gaming and esports accessible and enjoyable for everyone. The platform will enable players to write code and AIs that control characters, debug strategies in real-time, compete for prizes in tournaments and top spots on leaderboards, and collaborate with friends to build the best bots possible. Rather than traditional game playing where players utilize a controller or mouse and keyboard, Regression Games users will program algorithms and machine learning models to battle others. The AI platform will be made to integrate with both existing games and original games developed by Regression Games. With more than 3.2 billion gamers around the world, 175 US collegiate esport programs, and over 47% of US high schools teaching computer science, this intersection of gaming and coding is poised to grow over the years to come. By 2028, the video game industry is estimated to be worth over $435bn , as well as an estimated 45 million coders by 2030.
