eRepublik Labs, a subsidiary of Stillfront Group AB launches its fifth mobile historical Strategy MMO, “Game of Trenches – WW1” today on iOS and Android.
Building on a new generation of its historical strategy MMO game engine and the success of its four previously released games in the genre and a successful soft launch, eRepublik Labs will launch “Game of Trenches – WW1”, worldwide today on the Apple App Store and on the Google Play store. The game is a World War 1 themed mobile strategy MMO that includes improved 3D graphics with a more casual graphical theme and several new features such as map exploration via a fog of war, or live battles on the world map that can be retreated from or joined by any other player from around the world.
“I am proud of the eRepublik Labs team, this is now the 5th game we launch in the past four years in the historical mobile strategy MMO genre. We have made major improvements not only to the look and feel for this type of game but also in new, accessible, yet deep new gameplay features. We hope we will delight our players again with “Game of Trenches – WW1” says Alexis Bonte, co-founder and CEO of eRepublik Labs, who also recently became the Group COO of Stillfront.
“eRepublik Labs has become a reference in the strategy game genre. Now with its fifth game, the team keeps raising the bar with each one of their new releases. For “Game of Trenches – WW1” they are not only launching a new game but also rolling out new version of their successful strategy MMO engine. This brings significant graphical and gameplay improvements to a genre that with strong live ops, engages one of the most loyal player bases in gaming” says Jörgen Larsson, CEO of Stillfront.
