InnoGames today announced the start of the Closed Beta test of Rising Generals, a cross-platform strategy-MMO scheduled to be available later this year on iOS and Android phones and tablets as well as on browsers. In Rising Generals, players become commander of a military base, which needs to be quickly upgraded and staffed with troops in order to defend against and attack hostile neighbors. Unlockable technologies as well as officers and generals provide helpful bonuses and perks. The game focuses on PvP-action across game worlds that house up to 40,000 players each.
To create Rising Generals, InnoGames was supported by game design legend Bruce Shelley, known for his work on Civilization and the Age of Empires series. Shelley worked several months with the team during development and spent time in InnoGames' Hamburg offices.
