New Tutorial Improves User-Friendliness in The West

Hamburg, September 18, 2013. InnoGames just implemented a new update for the MMORPG The West. The central new feature is a completely revamped tutorial which guides players through the start of a Wild West journey in the online game. The new tutorial is more action-focused than the previous. Even after the tutorial, The West is now increasingly user friendly for new players - the first 20 quests were all adjusted to make early gameplay easier and more intuitive.

The new update also has new features for veteran players. InnoGames implemented three new quest series for players above level 50 with a focus in trading, fort battles and duels. In addition, the new blackboard makes it easier for towns to recruit new players – and new players can effortlessly find a new home base in order to ally with other players.

The West is a role-playing browser game set in the Wild Frontier. More than 18 million registered players worldwide are placed on a hunt for adventure, gold and fortune. Cowboys and cowgirls partake in interesting and exciting stories, help settlers and collect bounties. The role-playing game also incorporates some strategy aspects, as players can join big fort battles.

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 success with games such as Tribal Wars, Forge of Empires and Grepolis.
