BABIL GAMES STARTS SOFT LAUNCH OF “STRIKE OF NATIONS”
Babil Games, a subsidiary of Stillfront Group AB (“Stillfront”), will begin soft launch of the mobile modern strategy MMO “Strike of Nations: Empire of Steel” in September and plans global launch before the end of the year on Android and iOS. “Strike of Nations” is the global version of the hugely successful title “Nida Harb III: Empire of Steel” released in the MENA region, the third entry in Babil Games’ popular “Nida Harb” franchise.
The strong performance of “Nida Harb III” – the best performing Babil title to date – and a series of global marketing tests inspired Babil Games to launch the title globally. Being the first title published outside of MENA region by the studio, Babil Games is partnering with Goodgame Studios, also a part of Stillfront, to launch “Strike of Nations” successfully to global audiences.
“‘Strike of Nations: Empire of Steel’ is an exciting new milestone for us, our first global release with our best title to date” says MJ Fahmi, CEO of Babil Games. “We are extremely proud to bring an engaging gaming experience to international audiences in partnership with our friends at Goodgame Studios and eager to provide players with quality titles on a larger scale”.
“It is exciting that Babil Games has secured the global rights to one of Stillfront’s most successful titles. That the studios in the group take on larger projects together is valuable and in line with our strategy”, says Jörgen Larsson, CEO of Stillfront.
“Strike of Nations: Empire of Steel” is a modern World War strategy game full of action, where players take the commander’s seat to manufacture powerful tanks, forge alliances and together command vast military empires. On a huge open-world map with an extensive collection of powerful tanks, players clash to dominate the battlefield and take control of the central nuclear base to become the military Emperor with the power to launch nuclear strikes anywhere across the map.
