Independent games developer and publisher Dorado Games is proud to announce a partnership with Innova , the leading publisher of Massively Multiplayer Online Games in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). With the new partnership, Gladiators Online: Death Before Dishonor, the high-end 3d action- management game will be released to Russian-speaking territories across all major platforms, including browser, mobile and PC client.
Innova is granted exclusive publishing rights for Gladiators Online: Death Before Dishonor in its territory as part of the agreement, and ensures that local customer support and payment gateways will be provided for the game. Gladiators Online: Death Before Dishonor is available using a free-to-play model with premium sales, yet following the recent trend to fair and balanced gameplay mechanics to all players.
In Gladiators Online: Death Before Dishonor, the objective for the player is to become the top Lanista, or gladiator owner, in the Roman Empire. Starting his business with a small Ludus Gladiatorius, providing cheap entertainment to the people on the fringes of empire, he needs to train, heal and equip his gladiators so they stand a chance in the coming games. Gladiators Online is an action-management game where every detail counts and the life of the player’s fighters depend on tactical as well as economical decisions. Pitching player against player in deadly show-fights, gladiators will get wounded or even die in the arena – all to the greater glory and profit of the player’s House. Using the income from these games, players will be expanding their businesses, hiring expert staff, buying fresh talent, and creating a winning team to carry them all the way to the top – to Rome.
Through the partnership, online players in various international territories will have full access to the game in Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan, as well as the disputed territories of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
