New York, USA (September 4, 2006) - Paradox Interactive, a leading publisher and developer of critically acclaimed strategy titles, announced today that they have added their first MMO RTS title to the 2006 portfolio. Developed by Typhoon Games, "Infinity Empire" is an online e-only massive multiplayer strategy game played in real-time and set in a world beset by a planetary-wide catastrophe, with thousands of islands to claim and over millions of square kilometers of the northern continent known as Nespanona. The game is available NOW worldwide through subscription via download on the Infinity Empire website.
With numerous campaigns erupting in vast theatres of war, "Infinity Empire" is the only game that heads in a different direction, choosing to steer away from the hordes of sword-and-sorcery games. Each player commands their own empire and vies for control of the continent by exploring and claiming islands, and then mining them for the resources they hold. These resources are then used to construct buildings and fuel vehicles, or they can be exchanged for exotic hardware at the Eighth House, a powerful trading empire.
"We are continuing our quest to bring great strategy games to a worldwide strategy gaming community that is constantly searching for new and exciting gameplay challenges", said Fredrik Wester, Director of Sales & Acquisitions for Paradox Interactive. "This MMO RTS really caught our attention and we are so excited to be able to add it to our 2006 portfolio".
