Dublin, Ireland – April 16th, 2013 – Today sees the long-awaited launch of “Firearms”, the latest expansion for the history-based real time strategy MMO Terra Militaris by Snail Games and Gala Networks Europe. In addition, 4 new Terra Militaris servers will also be launched today.
To celebrate the launch, Gala Networks Europe will hold a championship event, in which players can win real world prizes, such as gaming hardware, as well as in-game rewards.
With the invention of gunpowder in Firearms, players will now also be able to train the so-called Hackbuteers - specially trained and armed riflemen - and build cannons that can only improve their tactical options and winning stakes.
But that’s not all: through the completely new pet system, players will be able to add even more strength to their troops. For the first time in Terra Militaris, the expansion will allow virtual warlords to tame, summon and train mighty and ferocious battle creatures that will accompany them on the battlefield.
Furthermore, the new crafting system adds smithing and cooking features to the game, and allows players to arm their troops with new weapons and armour -keeping the troops well fed will grant additional bonuses.
With the expansion, building and research levels will be increased to 25, and the hero level cap will be set to 120. Completely new to Terra Militaris is the 10 vs. 10 battle system, in which heroes of the same nation can team up to fight in groups of 10 against each other. Only heroes without troops and from 2 different nations are allowed to participate; the battle being fought to capture the enemy flag and kill their heroes. At the same time players have to take care of defending their own flag and try to minimize their own losses.
Packed full of new units, powerful heroes and advanced features, Firearms is a massive new version of Terra Militaris, launching today.
