WestWars in the Starting Blocks

First Screenshots of the new Facebook Game Released

HAMBURG, Germany, July 8 /CNW/ - InnoGames, with 50 million users one of the worldwide leading developers and publishers of browsergames, is going to release its first Facebook game in the next week. WestWars is the name of the game and it is set in the Wild West. On its fanpage (http://www.facebook.com/westwars), there are already screenshots and a blog about the new game.

The scenario is linked to the browsergame The West (http://www.the-west.net), which has ten million users and has been voted as the 'Browsergame of the year' in 2009 - the gameplay is completely different, though. "With WestWars, all players have the chance to use the fantastic possibilities that Facebook has to offer", InnoGames co-founder Eike Klindworth says. "The users not only can enhance their own character by surviving thrilling adventures in unknown lands, but may also recruit their friends as members of their WestWars Gang. And then, it is crunch time: is Jennifer a suitable mastermind or should she be better as my scout? Should I put Andrew as my bodyguard or would he be the perfect goon? A well-balanced gang is a very important factor in WestWars!"

Thus, real-life friends are daily companions in WestWars. Mr. Klindworth: "This is the great kick, everybody likes about social games. It is simply more fun to duel with your brother, neighbor or friend than fighting anonymous John Does."

WestWars is free to pay via Facebook. The public beta version starts in English, but there will be several other languages soon. In this beta period, InnoGames wants to optimize the game balance and eliminate bugs that might occur before the official release of version 1.0. InnoGames also plans to publish the game on external pages independently from Facebook in future.
