A new group of Empire Craft servers will go live at 8:00 a.m. EDT (GMT-04:00) on October 27 to accommodate an additional 30,000 players and enable 650,000 simultaneous players of the free MMO strategy game from Oak Pacific Interactive (OPI), Chinaís largest developer of browser-based games. New and current players can log in to the new servers to become eligible for a range of exciting promotions and item giveaways.
Players battle for dominance in the world of Empire Craft as they build up an army to defeat other players and work to expand their territory beyond a single plot of land. The three races of Humans, Dwarves and Orcs and cooperation with union members will offer players variable strategy.
Empire Craft is part of OPIís growing suite of English-language games on the HiThere.com platform and was recently joined by Neverland Online (beta). Players can access current and future games with a single registration.
