SAN FRANCISCO--()--Zynga today announced its newest game phenomenon CityVille is now available in Indonesian and Turkish bringing the number of offered languages for the game to eight.
Indonesian and Turkish are more language ‘firsts’ for Zynga and are important markets for the company as it expands internationally. Building from the global success of CityVille, an increased number of players around the world will now be able to play the game in their native languages.
CityVille has more than 20 million daily players worldwide with a large percentage of people playing the game each day in French, Italian, German or Spanish languages, which were included in the game’s global launch in December 2010. Both Indonesian and Turkish are among the top 5 languages on Facebook and continue to grow at a tremendous pace.
The launch is part of Zynga’s on-going commitment to international expansion and enhancing players’ overall user experience by enabling them to play in their native language. In March, Zynga plans to launch Mafia Wars in Indonesian, Turkish and Portuguese as the next of its popular games to be offered in these languages.
CityVille allows players to build their dream city from the ground up, where one can grow a thriving town, balance the needs of citizens, run restaurants and businesses and harvest crops. The growth of a town is in the hands of the player. As the city leader, players must guide their city to become a thriving metropolis, clearing the land and getting play-by-play tips from their own city advisor. CityVille also features Zynga’s first 3D-rendered buildings and characters, and is the most interactive Zynga game board to date.
