EMERYVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nexon M and Big Huge Games have launched the World War update for DomiNations, adding an expansive new team-based multiplayer mode to the hit strategy game, which has been downloaded more than 17 million times worldwide. The largest content expansion to date, World War introduces a massive multiplayer mode pitting two Alliances of up to 50 players against one another in an epic two-day battle for territorial domination that plays out on a map of the globe. As part of the World War update, players will also be able to build the new Command Post defensive structure, maximize their base defense on-the-fly with the War Base and Map Editor, participate in global challenges with a new event system and much more. DomiNations, including the new World War update, is available as a free download for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and Android devices at www.dominations.com.
“DomiNations was built for strategy gamers by strategy gamers, and we’re excited to launch our number one player-requested feature: World War,” said Tim Train, CEO, Big Huge Games. “World War adds a brand-new layer of strategy that rewards teamwork, creative base building, and clever approaches to battles. We’re looking forward to the global conflagration!”
In a World War, two Alliances of up to 50 players each will battle each other over two days for global domination, glory and loot. Once initiated, the World War is split into two distinct phases with the first day dedicated to planning and the second day focused on all-out global warfare. On planning day, Alliance members can collaborate and conspire by scouting enemy bases, readying their defenses and donating troops to one another. Equipped with a new Command Post structure, which unleashes civilization-specific defenders, players can use the War Base and Map Editor to deploy strategically configured strongholds built for battle onto the world map. On battle day, each Alliance member can attack twice where they can win up to five stars per base destroyed. The Alliance who scores the most stars at the end wins the war. Each member of the World War who makes a successful attack will earn bonus loot, while the winning side will take home the lion’s share.
“World War is an intense two days of strategy and battle when you’re locked in a full-scale 50-on-50 war,” said John Robinson, General Manager, Nexon M. “In bringing competitive alliance-vs-alliance multiplayer to DomiNations, Big Huge Games gives every player the opportunity to gear up for war with their friends and fight for global supremacy.”
DomiNations is the strategy game challenging players to lead their own civilization from the Stone Age to the Space Age. As one of eight nations, players will research, explore and gather resources and complete strategic single-player and multiplayer conquests to grow their civilization. With more than 100 unique upgradeable structures, units and technologies, players must balance managing their civilization’s food and economy while training their armies to earn valuable loot in battle and defending their own wealth.
