Come join over 25 million players in the free-to-play empire-building sensation.
NEW YORK - May 3, 2011 Evony, the persistent free-to-play city-building game, today announced its official two year anniversary, inviting the game’s 25 million players to join in a week-long celebration. Through various Facebook and Twitter contests, Evonians will have a shot at in-game currency and celebrity status. The Lords and Ladies of Evony contest kicks off today, with more giveaways through Friday. No contest registration is necessary; players may simply follow @EvonyOfficial on Twitter and fan Evony on Facebook to take part. The game remains completely free to play, with quests and tutorials to ease new players into the action.In the two years since launch, Evony LLC has released two Evony titles, Age I and Age II. While Age II retains the core gameplay of the original, social elements were added to make gameplay more collaborative, one of the most requested features. The game is centered around its vast player community, who are divided by server and alliance. While it’s possible to go it alone, most successful Evonians join an alliance, which support up to 99 players, facilitate complex offensive & defensive strategies as well as offering protection in the game’s 24 hour a day action. When work, school and family come first, it’s crucial to have a trusty band of Lords and Ladies watching your back.
In May of 2009, Evony: Age I was merely a handful of players on two servers. Today, the pair of games have grown to over 200 servers, including new Super Servers and servers dedicated to international play. Balanced play is paramount in Evony, and the new item introduced in February made a big stir; Bernini’s Hammer allows players to queue up multiple construction projects one after the next. Other fan-favorites like the Wheel of Fortune carried over from Age I, while Historic Heroes and Historic Cities add new goals and challenges.
“This is big day for the Evony team, all made possible by a dedicated community that has shown us amazing support over the past two years,” said Tony Cerrato, Marketing Officer at Evony, LLC. “Our goal with the Evony franchise is to achieve player happiness through engaging gameplay and a low barrier to entry. We’re already two years in, but it still feels like the beginning of the journey. We’re still striving for new ways to deliver a fun, immersive experience.”
Evony has garnered a rich community of players, from hardcore gamers to those discovering free-to-play gaming for the very first time. As producer Darold Higa put it, “Evony is proud to welcome all types of gamers from around the world, as we strive to make our third year the best one yet!”
