Israel-based social and mobile game developer Plarium has launched Sparta: War of Empires today. The game, available worldwide via Facebook, is described as a 3D massively multi-player, real time strategy game for Facebook set in Greece during the 5th century BC. The game combines large scale strategic warfare with diplomacy, resource management, and city building.
"We have enhanced the quality of this launch with incredibly detailed graphics and special attention to historical references. The 3D graphics alone are awe-inspiring, although we have gone further and enhanced the audio quality as well," said Avi Shalel, Plarium’s Chief Executive Officer. "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."
