Hamburg, September 18, 2013.
InnoGames just implemented a new update for the
The West. The central new
feature is a completely revamped tutorial which guides players
through the start of a Wild West journey in the online game. The
new tutorial is more action-focused than the previous. Even after
the tutorial, The West is now increasingly user friendly for new
players - the first 20 quests were all adjusted to make early
gameplay easier and more intuitive.
The new update also has new features for veteran players.
InnoGames implemented three new quest series for players above
level 50 with a focus in trading, fort battles and duels. In
addition, the new blackboard makes it easier for towns to recruit
new players – and new players can effortlessly find a new
home base in order to ally with other players.
The West is a role-playing browser game set in the Wild
Frontier. More than 18 million registered players worldwide are
placed on a hunt for adventure, gold and fortune. Cowboys and
cowgirls partake in interesting and exciting stories, help settlers
and collect bounties. The role-playing game also incorporates some
strategy aspects, as players can join big fort battles.
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
success with games such as
Forge of Empires and
