Publisher THQ has announced today they have re-launched their official website with new features and functionality. The site features a new global digital e-commerce destination (shopTHQ) powered by Digital River. The site’s design better reflects the company’s branding and provides news about upcoming THQ properties. The site opens up with a “Fresh 5″ list featuring the company’s top current and future games, and provides a single landing page with links to THQ’s social media profiles on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
“This is a significant shift in both the form and functionality for THQ.com,” said Ryan Okum, vice president of interactive marketing, THQ. “While we’ve already reconstructed the site from the ground up to improve the user experience, over the coming months we will be rolling new features to build out a robust community experience by extending our player’s experience from the game to the web and vice versa.”
Some other random site features added were a better search function, consumer feedback options, and improved global e-commerce throughout the site. The site is now outfitted for many languages throughout the world and more will be coming online soon.
