Today InnoGames announced the Closed Beta start of its strategy MMO Tribal Wars 2. On June 24, the English-speaking beta server will be opened to selected players who signed up for a beta key on www.tribalwars2.com. These select few players will be able to playtest the new game exclusively during the first days of beta. The beta will quickly be opened to significantly more participants. The beta will start for browser only, with the launch of the Open Beta, the game will also be available for Android and iOS. Players can set up one account for all platforms and play from whichever combination of devices they choose.
In Tribal Wars 2, players find themselves as a 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. The sequel offers a significantly enhanced set of features, with a total of 17 buildings, 26 technologies and 13 units. Tribal Wars 2 will be released as cross-platform game for Android, iOS and all browsers.
Tribal Wars was developed as a hobby project in 2003 by the three founders of InnoGames, Hendrik Klindworth, Eike Klindworth and Michael Zillmer. The game soon grew to a size where it was impossible to maintain privately and today Tribal Wars has more than 50 million registered players. Tribal Wars celebrated its tenth birthday last year with a big in-game event and a video to say thank you to devoted fans.
With about 120 million registered players, InnoGames is one of the world’s leading developers and providers of online games. Currently, the Hamburg-based company employs 300 professionals from 22 nations. Next to Tribal Wars, the Hamburg-based company has scored major successes with games such as Forge of Empires and Grepolis.
