GoodGame Empire, Germany’s most popular strategy game is starting a tournament today where, in addition to prizes worth almost ten million euros, players will also battle for a real, one-of-a-kind trophy. This is a sword made of Damascus steel, handcrafted especially for “Goodgame Empire” and is the first time since the game launched seven years ago where such a prize was available. Its virtual counterpart is the focal point of a several-week-long battle, which will show us the greatest Empire player in the world. Depending on where the winner is located, it will be delivered in person, or by special delivery to a destination of their choice. In order to satisfy the global fan community of “Goodgame Empire”, an additional prize of an equally skillfully-crafted shield and thousands more prizes will also be given away.

Hours of hard work went into this blade, crafted by the fine people at “Awe.Me” on Youtube. Their hit series, “Man At Arms: Reforged” has crafted some of the greatest fantasy swords ever, and it should be exciting for the winner to receive this one-of-a-kind blade.

“This is the largest and most exciting event that we’ve ever had in Empire,” says Nina Müller, who is responsible for the game’s continued development at Goodgame Studios. “After months of preparation, we can finally let the cat out of the bag.” Jörgen Larsson, CEO of the Stillfront Group, to which Goodgame Studios has belonged since the beginning of the year, is enthusiastic: “Large community events make the difference in online games these days. I am convinced that this will give Empire and the whole group a further boost.”
