Castle of Heroes: Babel opens today

Press Release

For immediate release

Dublin, Ireland - May 20th, 2010 - Gala Networks Europe, the leading free-to-play online games publisher, is delighted to announce that Babel, the new expansion for its browser game Castle Of Heroes, will go live today.

Babel brings a number of new features to the strategy game, offering fresh challenges to new players and battle-hardened warriors alike.

Chief among the additions to the game is the legendary Tower Of Babel itself: 40 floors filled with monstrous guardians, each more powerful than the last. Players can attempt the Tower once each day and can earn substantial amounts of experience through winning - or forfeit all their spoils in defeat.

Other new buildings each have their own special bonuses: experience awaits the players who defeat the guardian in the Ivory Tower; gold in return for capturing the merchant market and ore for victory in the Dwarf Mine will gain a steady supply of ore.

Hero quests are another brand new quest opportunity - these can be undertaken at any time during the game to gain valuable experience points.

The inclusion of new boss monster battles provides another way for players to boost their experience: here the foes are unique to each individual player and will appear on the player's map three times a day, ready for combat.

Fighting options in the Arena have also been overhauled, with combatants now battling for military titles, access to special hero items, and increased troop capacity.

Join the excitement in Babel today: the game is available on both PC and Mac, with no download required. Just register at the official website at http://heroes.gpotato.eu or log in with your existing gPotato.eu account details, and you can play straightaway! Castle Of Heroes is available in English, French, German and Polish for everybody with a gPotato.eu account.
