Five years of Travian Games - the Bavarian success story continues with the eagerly awaited limited Travian 4 Beta!

Munich, 11 November 2010 - Today Travian Games GmbH celebrates its fifth anniversary with style. The three founding fathers, brothers Siegfried and Gerhard Müller and their long-time fellow student Holger Miller, never would've thought how quickly the company would eventually grow. Their rise to fame began in 2005, when they were still lodgers at a Munich butcher's and teamed up with a handful of individualists and games enthusiasts. With the captivating and entertaining products developed by the company's creative masterminds becoming more and more popular, the headcount reached more than 170 people by the end of 2010. One successful product has turned into six long runners, which are played in up to 42 different languages in more than 50 countries all over the world.

Up till now more than 100 ,000,000 games fans from around the globe have registered for the company's various titles, and many faithful gamers have been following those crafty people from Munich for many years on end now. The sustainable gameplay of all products, the sophisticated scenarios and, most of all, the chance to play games free of charge for weeks on end attracts more and more fans to the company's virtual playgrounds.

Continuing the company's expansion, Travian Games will soon unveil their most successful title in its newest and most up-to-date version. The "Travian 4" beta servers will be opened shortly, and in cooperation with selected media partners those highly coveted limited beta keys are available to the fans of the real-time strategy and construction game. In addition, to celebrate Travian Games' fifth anniversary, via the "Travian 4" website a lucky few users will have a chance to get a very limited number of "tickets" for the company's latest masterpiece before its launch in spring 2011.

"Nobody would ever have anticipated such a rapid growth of our company in such a short period of time!" says Florian Bohn, CEO of Travian Games GmbH. "Still, we're not going to rest on our laurels. Millions of clients as well as our partners will be able to play Travian Games' entertaining and motivating products for a long time to come. And we'll continue to focus on quality rather than quantity to captivate our players with the sustainable game play of each of our titles!"
