Munich, May 12, 2011 - The infinite reaches of space have long been a place of fascination for fans of digital entertainment. Now Munich-based browser game developer Travian Games is sending tens of thousands of players into intergalactic conflict, to fight side-by-side or against in the battle for cosmic supremacy.
Imperion allows players from all over the world the opportunity to play as one of three very different races, each with its own characteristics. They must run a border outpost, explore new frontiers, colonize planets and annihilate threats. Imperion’s players can find themselves conducting military border battles, cunning diplomacy, skilful trade or looking for ways to exploit synergies with other peoples. The game is not specifically geared towards confrontation, rather it is builds on interactions between the players.
Imperion is developed by Travian Games’ in-house team and is based on an idea from Gerhard Müller, creator of Travian, one of the most successful browser games worldwide. Thanks to a motivated team and a long initial test-phase, May 16 is now the date on which the new Imperion will start in open beta form. The initial beta version of the game started in 2009, and is currently played by thousands of sci-fi fans. The new version differs from the previous one in nearly all its game play mechanics, graphics and balancing, giving the entire game a more polished and modern look and feel.
Eckart Foos, Head of Games at Travian Games is looking forward to the start of the beta: "At last our players from all over the world can set forth for the infinite galaxies of Imperion. Its modern graphical style and challenging game play will raise the bar for strategy sci-fi browser games. We will use the beta to painstakingly analyze and optimize many of the game’s processes. Because the beta will be restricted to around 20,000 users, interested players should secure their place in the beta as early as possible."
