MUNICH, September 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
3.288 days of strategy fun for 125 million players worldwide
Nine years of Travian, nine years of cult about the browser game, nine years of success story: In September the browser-game Travian celebrates its ninth birthday. As a present for all players Travian gives a special birthday world to its fans and raffles strictly limited Travian-amulets.
Browser-game years are like dog years: they count manifold. This means that the browser-game Travian, aged nine years, is a real evergreen already. The game, invented and designed in Munich, is not only one of the biggest browser-games worldwide, but more importantly it has reached cult status! 125 million players have been enthused by Travian, since the game started in September 2004. This makes Travian one of the most popular and best known browser-games internationally.
For the game's birthday the Travian developers have thought of something really special: "There will be a birthday world", Game-Director Eckart Foos explains. "The special thing is, apart from many other surprises, that there will be a prolonged settling in period, thus making the entrance into the game easier and establishing a balance between players with different experience levels. Also we will give away Travian gold for our birthday!"
Furthermore it is the first time that Travian connects the online with the offline world: A valuable Travian-amulet, strictly limited to 999 pieces, will be presented. "But the Travian-amulet is not for sale - it can exclusively be won", says Foos. "The much sought-after collector's item will be raffled in all 50 Travian countries."
Be it as a Roman, Gaul or Teuton: Travian is about enlarging your territory - either in a peaceful way by colonisation and trade or martially by taking over other villages. Elaborate strategies, the forming of alliances, as well as the diplomatic communication among each other are the components for the fascination of the game.
The player begins with a small village, surrounded by resource fields. It is the objective of the game to establish a powerful empire and in the end, together with your allies, to be the first one to build one of the historic wonders of the world. In order to avoid any language barriers from the start each of the 50 language versions is independent.
