Heroes of Gaia: Rise of the Guilds Expansion Launches May 27
LOS ANGELES, Calif. – May 25, 2010 – SNAIL GAMES USA today announced the release date of Heroes of Gaia: Rise of the Guilds, the latest expansion of the groundbreaking MMO RTS browser game, Heroes of Gaia (HoG).
With Rise of the Guilds (RoG), Snail Games USA will take free-to-play MMO browser gaming to the next level. RoG introduces a rich variety of new gameplay elements to the already feature-rich HoG universe. The expansion contains a new Guild Battle system which will create a deep Guild-versus-Guild (GvG) competition element, along with personal rankings, equipment forging, a number of new high-level NPCs, and a multitude of new functional and vanity items in the HoG Shop.
“We are thrilled to give the HoG community things which they have been requesting for a long time.” said Scott Miller, CEO of Snail Games USA. “The Guild Battle system is unique in the world of F2P MMO games and the expansion is going to serve every level of player, from the most competitive guilds, who will have an opportunity to determine which is the supreme champion of HoG, to the novice player, who is just getting involved in the HoG community.”
The RoG expansion will officially go live across all HoG realms on the morning of Thursday, May 27 after a brief period of scheduled maintenance late in the evening on Wednesday, 10 pm – 2 am (Pacific time). Players will be able to log on instantly and access all of new HoG: RoG features at no cost and with no downloads.
“There is a lot going on here at Snail – and the RoG expansion is just the beginning. We will have an announcement very soon about our next game, which is coming this summer and will set a new high-water mark in MMO browser games. Stay tuned – it’s going to be a big summer.”
