Sparta: War of Empires Launched on Facebook

Plarium has released Sparta: War of Empires today, bringing the historic Spartan fighting to Facebook.

Those who choose to play this massively multiplayer online real-time strategy game, will be dropped into the middle of a war between the tyrant Xerxes and the Persian Empire. Set in fifth century B.C. Greece, players are tasked with protecting their city-state with the help of King Leonidas and the Spartan army using a combination of diplomacy, strategy and war.

“We have enhanced the quality of this launch with incredibly detailed graphics and special attention to historical references,” said Plarium CEO Avi Shalel. “The 3D graphics alone are awe-inspiring, although we have gone further and enhanced the audio quality as well. Most importantly, the gameplay and processes required for enhanced MMO strategic warfare have been enhanced so that players have a faster, more active and, in the end, more challenging experience.”

The developer has promised regular updates and support for the game, in the shape of content that includes new characters, maps and missions. You can now play the game on Facebook, but after watching the cinematic trailer above.
