Record-breaking visitor rush on the TRAVIAN 4 Beta within the first month, while a third beta server opens in Russian language!

Munich, 19 January 2011 - Two beta servers of TRAVIAN 4 in English and German language were just launched in early December. After only a few days users could test the servers under extreme conditions, as the world-wide fan community is much more interested in the latest version of this browser game classic than expected. That?s reason enough for Travian Games to react and to launch a third server in Russian language under the domain t4.travian.ru, side by side to the existing German and English servers.

Eckart Foos, Head of Games at Travian Games GmbH says: ?We did expect strong interest in the beta, as the huge community has closely followed the development of the latest version and its changes. What we did not expect were over 80,000 users from across the world playing the limited beta version with such a passion, giving valuable feedback for the upcoming public launch. For that we are immensely thankful! We have one of the strongest communities among browser games, and TRAVIAN 4 Beta is proof that this is not going to change!?

Reasons for this rapid growth within only a few days are the positive press feedback and the size and strength of the world-wide community, which is already favourably discussing the beta in online forums. Their playing the game is taking the servers closer and closer to their limits. The Russian server will remain the last new beta server before TRAVIAN 4 officially launches in 50 countries around the globe successively this spring.
