eRepublik prepares for launch of “War and Peace: Civil War”
eRepublik Labs, one of the Stillfront Group studios, prepares its third mobile historical Strategy MMO, “War and Peace: Civil War” for launch in Q4 of 2017.
Building on its historical strategy MMO game engine and the success of its two previously released games in the genre: “Age of Lords” and “World at War: WW2”, eRepublik Labs has recently soft launched in certain markets “War and Peace: Civil War”, an American Civil War themed mobile strategy MMO. After a period of fine-tuning and marketing tests during soft launch, the game will go on full release before the end of the year.
eRepublik Labs uses a theme testing methodology that it applies in pre-production before starting developing any new strategy MMO to identify the highest potential historical themes with its core audience of historical strategy fans. The American Civil war theme scored strongly in these tests, including higher relevance scores and better CPIs than eRepublik Labs’ latest hit “World at War: WW2”, a World War 2 themed strategy MMO.
Early soft launch KPIs for “War and Peace: Civil War” are also stronger than eRepublik Labs’ previous historical strategy MMO soft launches, showing strong promise for the full launch and confirming the validity of eRepublik Labs’ approach to game pre-production and development.
eRepublik Labs is recognized by Google Play as one of its top developers in the world (all its games carry the “Top Developer” badge) and its games have often been selected for featuring by the Apple editorial team.
“World at War: WW2”, launched in October 2016 and is one of the top grossing strategy games in multiple markets on the Google Play Store. “Age of Lords” launched in March 2015 and is still one of the most appreciated strategy MMOs with a loyal user base. Both games are profitable.
