Gameforge announces Online Action RPG Hellbreed

Karlsruhe, Germany, 7th June 2011 – Today, Gameforge, Europe’s leading provider of free-to-play online games, announces the action role-playing game  Hellbreed , a free-to-play browser game with unprecedented graphics. The game has first been introduced to the players at gamescom 2010 with the working title“Soulbinder” and is now expected to be released in August 2011.

In  Hellbreed , the player boldly faces the creatures of his opponent Darken and tries to unite the world Manjuri again, which has been smashed by the Gods. Players can choose between three characters and fight the enemies in singleplayer mode as well as in multiplayer sessions.

The Phire 2.5D Engine, developed by Gameforge’s studio Inflammables, not only sets new standards in graphics, it also provides a fluid gameplay without inconvenient loading time. The isometric view creates a 3D effect in the browser which allows a detailed presentation of the environment.

„We are certain that  Hellbreed  is going to set new standards. There isn’t a comparable action browser game on the market right now, and we are definitely excited to see the first reactions of the players”, says Markus Windelen, Vice President Web Games at Gameforge.
