Hamburg, July 19, 2013. InnoGames just started a large new quest series for their online role-playing game The West. The “Drama Queens” series actually consists of three different quest series, each one popping up in the early, mid and late game play. In the main new attractions, players will find saloon girl Kiki in search of her missing husband, cowgirl Mimi arrested by the Sheriff even though she seems innocent and native Indian Lili, who lost her memory and entire identity. Thus, players from all levels will immediately have new exciting content to play. The drama queens series starts with Kiki, followed by Mimi and finishes with Lili.

To help the three ladies, players have to fulfill many tricky quests and will experience quite a lot of surprises and story changes. If they solve all the problems that arise, The West rewards them with a valuable item set. German TV stars Janina Uhse, Nina Bott and Maria Wedig, known from several soap series, worked as the real-life models for the characters. The “Drama Queens” series covers the topics from those TV shows – with plenty of self-deprecating humor.

The West is a role-playing browser game set in the Wild Frontier. Players are placed on a hunt for adventure, gold and fortune. Cowboys and cowgirls partake in interesting and exciting stories, help settlers and collect bounties.

With about 100 million registered players, InnoGames is one of the world's leading developers and publishers of online games. In addition to The West, the Hamburg-based company has scored major successes with games such as Tribal Wars, Forge of Empires and Grepolis.
