Hamburg, 8 May 2013 - As of today, the browser version of the medieval-building game "Lords & Knights" shines in a completely new light. The dedicated team of five worked for nine months on the complete revision of Xyrality's first browser version of their strategy game.
The fundamentally revised game awaits the lords at www.lordsandknights.com: From beginning to end, nothing was left untouched in order to create a new, faster and more user-friendly gaming experience. The old castle view has been exchanged in favour of a clearer overview of the central map. Hence, additional space for information windows which can be placed individually on the playing surface has been created.
The required windows with information about messages, castles, troop movements and other elements can be arranged for every action according to the your wish. This allows the easy management of great kingdoms and quick expansion of small ones. The new browser version, with an optimized scalability and several added animations presents itself much clearer and more user-friendly - making the ruling of your empire much easier. A completely new, promising and powerful HTML5-engine is providing its service in the background. The new browser version is topped off with sound effects and game music, which can now also be enjoyed by the browser gaming community.
The browser version remains a part of the Lords & Knights universe, which now accommodates over 4 million players spread out on the iOS, Android and browser platforms. The fate of your own medieval empire can still be guided on the smartphone, computer and the tablet.
The new browser is available to all players for free at www.lordsandknights.com. A first impression is provided by the screenshots at: http://xyrality.com/files/profiles/2.0_en.zip, as well as a short video on Youtube, which introduces the new features: www.youtube.com/watch?v=4e2TpnRdAys
