Real-time PvP combat set to raise the level of intensity and epic warfare
KIXEYE, the leader in competitive online combat strategy games, announced today that War Commander, the #1 rated MMO-RTS game on Facebook, has launched “Live Battles,” an exciting new feature that will allow players to engage in high-intensity PvP battles with opponents from around the world.
Players will now be able to immediately drop into the game and instantly command their troops to defend against enemy attacks as they happen. This form of synchronous, head-to-head strategic combat will be a first for any browser-based game without a client download.
“Live Battles for War Commander was the number one most requested feature by our community, and we spent the past four months working to get it right,” said David Scott, executive producer at KIXEYE. “We see this as the future of competitive multiplayer games for browser, and its quantum leaps forward of what’s currently on the market.”
The launch of Live Battles marks the latest in a series of major updates to War Commander, including a massive new World Map, which lets players explore and take control of new territory to build their empires. Additional updates such as customizable army units and a wider range of defensive tower options are also planned for the near future. War Commander, which is celebrating its one-year anniversary, currently has over 5 million monthly active users who play an average of three sessions and over 1 hour and 30 minutes per day.
