Aeria Games Launches Closed Beta for Golden Age in Spanish

SANTA CLARA, Calif.  – Feb. 1, 2012Aeria Games, a leading global publisher of free-to-play online games, today launched Closed Beta testing for the Spanish version of Golden Age, its latest browser-based, real-time strategy (RTS) title.  

Golden Age blends traditional browser-based RTS gameplay with role-playing game (RPG) features to deliver a beautifully-rendered, immersive experience, playable from any web browser. Golden Age allows players to interact in Sanctum City, a side-scrolling RPG style town. Work together or fight solo to conquer territories and expand your empire in strategic player-versus-player (PvP) and player-versus-environment (PvE) battles.

Golden Age is set in the tumultuous medieval setting inspired by the history of the legendary Knights Templar. From Sanctum City, players can delve into instance dungeons, gain resource points, and plunder wilderness to level up and gain experience before they venture forth to compete in strategic city battles. Players maintain diverse military resources, including infantry, cavalry, mages, trebuchets, spies, and a host of ruthless offensive and defensive tactics as they plot their path to domination.

Golden Age offers refined browser gameplay that pushes forward the web RTS genre with revolutionary upgrades in graphics, in-game systems, and player options,” said Lan Hoang, Chief Executive Officer, Aeria Games. “The launch of our closed beta allows players to immerse themselves for the first time in a dynamic medieval RTS world enriched with roleplaying elements.”

Aeria Games will host the Golden Age Spanish closed beta starting on January 31. The game will feature a number of player events during the closed beta including prizes for players who achieve the highest levels, Forum events in which players can enter for the chance to win Aeria Points, and Facebook events.

Like all browser-based titles from Aeria Games, the Spanish version of Golden Age is free to play and won’t require a download. Interested players can participate in the closed beta testing phase here: http://es.goldenage.aeriagames.com.
