Tribal Wars 2, the online strategy game developed and published by InnoGames, has received a new update, enabling players to develop a second village earlier than before, which significantly speeds up the game progress in the beginning. From now on, players will be able to get a second village by fulfilling quests within five days. Additional villages will have be captured like before. With this updated system, players will reach the mid-game quicker.
InnoGames’ Senior Product Manager Nino Protic has said that before the update, people had to wait up to two weeks in order to get their second village, which many players found frustrating. Protic has said that this frustration is what led InnoGames to develop the sped-up feature for Tribal Wars 2.
“Tribal Wars 2 is essentially about managing a whole empire, moving troops from one village to the other and performing strategic attacks on enemies. However, it currently takes players up to two weeks until they have their second village and know this gaming experience. We wanted to change this so players will now get the full gaming experience way quicker and easier.”
In Tribal Wars 2, players find themselves as the leader of a small village in the midst of a medieval world. Tasked with growing and expanding their empire within a war-torn landscape, they have to fight in order to survive. The MMO’s focus is real-time, strategic battles with and against other players. The game is designed as a cross-platform game for browser and mobile to allow players to use the same account while still experiencing the same game world, with the same rivals and allies. The game is released for both browser and android; the iOS app will follow in the next months.
InnoGames has also been developing Android versions of many of their most successful games, such as Forge of Empires, which received an Android version earlier this week. It seems that, like Forge of Empires, Tribal Wars 2 will be receiving an Android version sometime in the near future. When InnoGames released the Forge of Empires Android version, they said that it would include a cross-platform functionality, which may also be the case for Tribal Wars 2.
“From now on, players can expand their territories, not only in browser and on iOS, but also on Android devices. They will not have to start from scratch as the app offers full cross-platform functionality: players can use the same account on all platforms and switch back and forth.”
