Browser game Travian celebrates its 7th birthday with over 100 million players all over the world

Press release - for immediate publication

Munich, 09.14.2011 - It started in 2004 in the heart of Munich as little more than an online game for friends and acquaintances but it has grown into a German-based gaming phenomenon. The Travian browser game is not only the oldest continuously developed product in the online sector, it is also one of the most successful computer games in the world. The evergreen from Travian Games celebrates its 7th birthday today and it has lost none of its appeal for players of all kind.

Over 100 million players from all over the world have registered for Travian in the past seven years, to compete against other players as Gauls, Romans, or Teutons. Players have logged in from almost every country in the world to play on the 60 official game servers in 42 different languages. In over 200 countries worldwide - including for example the Vatican, San Marino or Faeroe Islands - Travian players can found settlements and villages in an ancient world scenario to compete and win by forming strong alliances.

According to Travian Games GmbH CEO Florian Bohn: "To establish Travian as such a worldwide phenomenon, many highly-qualified employees have continuously developed, marketed and translated Travian into over 40 different languages. Individualization is the key to the game’s worldwide success, because players always prefer to communicate in their own language with alliance partners or adversaries! I would like to thank all the employees for their efforts over the last seven years, which have also been very much appreciated by our players all over the world - here’s to the next seven years!"

You can’t have a birthday without a party and presents. Travian players around the world will get 40% more gold for a weekend on any purchase. This applies to all Travian 4 worlds, as well as to the Travian 3 classic server. See the different country versions and the forums for further details.
