Snail Games USA, a business unit of Suzhou Snail Electronic Co., Ltd. (Snail Games) announced today that the beta phase 2 period for HEROES OF GAIA™, the innovative browser-based strategic MMORPG, would begin on Tuesday, October 20, 2009. The beta two phase has been started with a limited number of closed beta keys made available through our partner MMORPG.com
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.
“As development on HEROES OF GAIA™ continues to move forward, we have seen an amazing response from players” said Scott Miller, General Manager of Snail Games USA. “HEROES OF GAIA™ mixes the social environment of an MMORPG with classic strategy game concepts in an amazing mix that’s easy to get into but hard to stop playing. HEROES OF GAIA™ will allow players to enter an exciting new world through their Web browser and pit their strategic skills in battle against thousands of other players.”
As a special thank you to its loyal group of beta testers, Snail Games has also announced its “head start” program. All beta testers who sign up and play just once between October 13 and the end of the beta period will be able to retain any heroes, castles assets and items they collect during the beta and take them into the start of official gameplay.
