EMERYVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nexon M and Big Huge Games launched the “Great Leaders” update for DomiNations today, adding five of the greatest minds in history (Catherine the Great, Leonardo da Vinci, King Sejong, Saladin and Suleiman I), with each leader offering new skills to enhance players’ armies and defenses based on that leader’s life achievements. The Great Leaders Update also adds Alliance leaderboards to the massive 100-player World War campaigns, and brings localization support for Italy and Turkey. DomiNations has been downloaded more than 20 million times and is available as a free download for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and Android devices at www.dominations.com.
“DomiNations is all about unique player strategy and celebrating the triumphs of the many cultures of the world throughout human history,” said Tim Train, CEO, Big Huge Games. “To embrace this, we’ve added some of the greatest minds in science, culture and military strategy from across history to give players even more ways to strengthen and customize their empires than ever before.”
The Great Leaders update introduces the University, a new upgradable structure where Great Leaders can be consulted for their wisdom. Each Great Leader offers knowledge of different skills with both passive and active bonuses. Players can conduct research at the University to expand and unlock each Great Leader’s skill trees to help advance their civilizations.
DomiNations’ multiplayer experience will also receive Alliance vs. Alliance leaderboards to track stats during World War campaigns, spotlighting top leaders and spurring competition between Alliances in the game’s 50-vs-50 wars.
