9 Empires: Strategy, RPG combined with fantasy in the browser

Berlin, 19th November 2010– the Berlin-based online games publisher, Capital Games GmbH, has opened the gates to the mystical world of 9 Empires. A couple of weeks ago the fantasy strategy browser game with RPG elements, was launched into closed beta. Thousands of players tested the game enthusiastically and helped to remove bugs and suggest improvements. Now the game is ready to go into open beta, which means that anyone can start playing on www.9Empires.com.

The game has a lot to offer, starting with the choice between 9 playable races (four of which were accessible during the closed beta): Humans, Elves, Orcs, Subterraneans, Highlanders, Undead, Ghosts, Sirens and Underworld each with their own advantages, disadvantages, troops and tactics all waiting to be commanded by a mighty and ambitious leader.

“The feedback during the closed beta was really positive and we thank all of the players who helped us. It’s a great start for us to build up such a dedicated community and we are now ready to welcome more keen adventurers to the world of Bathea“, says Benjamin Armbrüster, Community Manager at Capital Games.“We are also working on more updates and improvements to 9 Empires, so we can continue to offer a great gaming experience to our new and existing users.”

A quick tutorial makes the entry into the game very easy and also gives a good overview of the many different activities that are available to players: first and foremost you must build up your cities and economy and start training up to five heroes to lead your armies. Beyond this you can explore the world of Bathea, craft items, fight epic bosses and even partake in huge legion battles for strategic areas. 

9 Empires is completely free to play. Players who cannot invest as much time as others into the game can also purchase small upgrades and speed ups, so they don’t lose out. As of next week players will be able to pay with credit cards, direct debit and other standard payment methods, which will also be extended in future.
