The Wild West 2.0 launches in beta, release coming soon

Hamburg, August 28, 2012. Frontier adventure browser game, The West, prepares to release its major upgrade to 2.0, by releasing it in a public beta. The new version will include a completely redesigned and highly interactive map, an overhauled job system and a clean, modern interface. InnoGames hopes to release the new version on all markets within the next weeks. Version 2.0 has been the biggest and most extensive upgrade of the game since its release in 2008.

Players eager to see the new features in action and provide the team with feedback, can already play the 2.0 - version on the The West beta servers. Most enhancements for the upcoming 2.0 version came from actively communicating with the game's community, and implementing requested features.
