From the Wild West with Love – The West Celebrates Valentine’s Day

Hamburg, February 5, 2013. From February 14-17, InnoGames celebrates Valentine’s Day in the frontier role-playing browser game, The West. Players will have access to a special Valentine’s quest, and solving it results in special rewards. And because even cowboys need a little love, romantic roses will replace weapons in the duel system during the event.

The new quests will differ according the characters’ sex. Coinciding with the celebration of love, all those players who renounce violence in the name of romance will be rewarded handsomely. To do this, western heroes must find 3 bouquets of red roses during jobs. These can be equipped for duels instead of weapons, and if both duel opponents do this, the pair receives extra skill points.

In addition, a new item set featuring cupid-inspired swag is available in the shop. The set increases the amount of flowers that can be found for duels. Bouquets can be used until February 20 th.

The West is a role-playing browser game set in the Wild Frontier. Players are placed on a hunt for adventure, gold and fortune. Cowboys and cowgirls partake in interesting and exciting stories, help settlers and collect bounties.

With about 100 million registered players, InnoGames is one of the world's leading developers and publishers of online games. In addition to The West, the Hamburg-based company has scored major successes with games such as Tribal Wars, Forge of Empires and Grepolis.
