Gala Networks Europe announces its new browser based game Terra Militaris

Press Release

For immediate release

Dublin, Ireland– August 31st, 2010– Gala Networks Europe, the leading free-to-play publisher of online games, is delighted to announce that Terra Militaris, its upcoming browser-based real-time strategy MMO, will be launched by the end of 2010. The release of Terra Militaris will mark Gala Network Europe’s second title from developers Snail Game available via the gPotato.eu portal, and sees the publisher further deepening its partnership with the talented Chinese developer.

Terra Militaris will combine historical MMORTS gameplay with high-end Flash graphics and will be fully playable on both PC and Mac formats. Ready to set a new standard for browser games, Terra Militaris will bring a new gaming experience to European players without any downloads or a subscription fee.

In the persistant online world of Terra Militaris, players will start the game by choosing one of the four great ancient civilisations; Rome, Egypt, Persia and China and create a hero in order to build their own empire. Players will have to evolve their empire through five different eras by further developing their knowledge in the fields of technology, construction, military and economics. To achieve the ultimate victory, players will need to build powerful armies by levelling up their heroes and combat units, upgrading their weaponry and by learning effective battle tactics.

Players can conquer their rival’s territories by laying siege to their strongholds, taking over and controlling important cities, forging alliances and uniting military forces with other players to lead massive combined armies in epic real-time battles, which can be against NPCs, individual human players and even entire guilds. Players can also increase their political influence by spreading religion, exploring uncharted territories and building trading routes on the vast world map. They must be ready to master all these strategic tools and finally unite all the ancient civilisations under their banner to rule the world.

Terra Militaris will be available by the end of 2010 through the gPotato.eu games portal with no download or subscription fee required. To play the game, users will only have to login to the official website using their favourite PC or Mac web-browser, and jump into the game in seconds. More information about the game will soon be available on http://terra-militaris.gpotato.eu.
