The battle for the medieval world continues: InnoGames announces Tribal Wars 2.
Today InnoGames announced the successor to its legendary strategy-MMOG Tribal Wars. The game will be called Tribal Wars 2 internationally (as opposed to its predecessor, which is known as Guerre Tribale in France, Guerres Tribales in Spain, etc.), and is planned to start its browser beta within the next few months. From now on, players can apply for one of the highly demanded spots on www.tribalwars2.com. The game sports state-of-the-art graphics and will later be released as cross-platform game for Android, iOS and all browsers. Therefore, players can set up one account for all platforms and play from whichever combination of devices they choose.
“Tribal Wars was the starting point for the success story of InnoGames. The game contains so much passion and personal commitment. This is why we’re very happy that Tribal Wars 2 will be the first native cross-platform game published by InnoGames.” explains Hendrik Klindworth, founder of InnoGames. An early closed beta aims at quickly receiving player feedback for future optimization.
In Tribal Wars 2, players find themselves as leader of a small village in the midst of a medieval world. Tasked with growing and expanding their empire within a war-torn landscape, they have to fight in order to survive. The MMO’s focus is real-time strategic battles with and against other players. Army size is not all that matters – political alliances and military pacts are crucial for success. Team play is a key aspect of the game. Compared to its predecessor, Tribal Wars 2 offers a significantly enhanced set of features, with a total of 17 buildings, 26 technologies and 13 units.
Tribal Wars was developed as a hobby project in 2003 by the three founders of InnoGames, Hendrik Klindworth, Eike Klindworth and Michael Zillmer. Even though financial success was not the goal, the game grew to a size where it was impossible to maintain privately. Today, Tribal Wars has more than 50 million registered players and recently celebrated its tenth birthday with a big in-game event and a video saying thank you.
With more than 110 million registered players, InnoGames is one of the world’s leading developers and providers of online games. Next to Tribal Wars, the Hamburg-based company has scored major successes with games such as Forge of Empires and Grepolis.
