Auckland, New Zealand - March 15th 2013
DataSmugglers is pleased to announce that the highly anticipated Dinosaur and Time Machine Expansion for Ironfell, the indie MMORTS, is now live!
The expansion doubles the number of units in Ironfell and introduces two new resources to fight for. Oil seeps out of the ground in existing PVP realms and Engineers can build pump jacks to collect that oil. Electricity is generated slowly by Windmills and quickly by Oil generators. Inventors can build Time Machines that give you access to 65 million years ago where dinosaurs roam.
The new dinosaurs include rare Tyrannosaurus who can clear 100's of swordsman but fare poorly against masses of the new Riflemen units. Small Oryctodromeus can dig burrows between prehistoric realms. Ultrasaurus and Diplodocus are two herbivorous dinosaurs who eat the new larger multi-stage Wollemia trees and pass the seeds allowing you to grow more trees where you need them.
Ironfell is free to play on Mac OSX, Windows, Browser and Android. All platforms connect to the same massive, persistent universe consisting of 75,000 realms packed with 3.5 million user controlled units.
In the next few days DataSmugglers will announce an indiegogo kick starter to fund the next expansion - Space!
