Hamburg, January 29, 2013. Browser game developer InnoGames just published the first theme song of a God featured in its strategic browser game Grepolis. The glorious theme of Zeus, king of the gods in ancient Greece, can be played here. Grepolis will soon receive an update, containing several music themes and sound effects – including songs for specific gods. The live recording of the main theme, covered by the famous Brandenburg State Philharmonics with over 60 musicians, can be watched on YouTube.

The new in-game sounds will give players audible feedback for actions, which is intended to increase the enjoyment and atmosphere of the title. InnoGames plans to present more audio previews in the coming weeks.

Grepolis is a strategy game set in Ancient Greece. In the free browser-based title, players are tasked with building up a vast metropolis and uniting with other players to establish a powerful military and conquer far away islands. Currently it boasts over 19 million registered users and is playable in 22 languages.

Next to Grepolis, games company InnoGames has published major browser game titles like Forge of Empires, Tribal Wars and The West. With about 100 million registered users, the German company belongs to the biggest developers and publishers of online games.
