LOS ANGELES, Calif. - December 10, 2009– Snail Games USA announced today that HEROES OF GAIA™, the innovative browser-based RTS MMO currently in Open Beta, has now reached a monthly active user population of more than 600,000 users worldwide.

“We’re delighted at the tremendous growth HEROES OF GAIA™ has received since the start of our Open Beta in October,” said Scott Miller, General Manager for Snail Games USA.“The success of HEROES OF GAIA™ is certainly a group effort, and we are thankful for our partner’s help in promoting HEROES OF GAIA™. We are looking forward to releasing BABEL, the first expansion for HEROES OF GAIA™, later this month. BABEL’s innovative upgrades and new features will answer many of our player’s requests, and provide an even greater gaming experience.”

Based on classic strategy game concepts pioneered in legendary PC strategy titles, HEROES OF GAIA™ puts gamers in the shoes of one of four warring factions (Humans, Elves, Orcs or the Undead) and challenges them to build a castle, recruit mighty heroes, quest for magical items, summon up devastating armies and rampage across the land battling against players and NPCs alike in thrilling strategic combat to dominate the kingdom of Gaia. The game is free to play and browser-based which means no heavy client to download or install and no subscription fees– ever.
