Hamburg, March 4, 2014. InnoGames has just released the Grepolis Heroes on the English language versions of the game. Andromeda, Heracles, Leonidas and many more - from now on, players have access to numerous Heroes from Greek mythology. All of them have several unique abilities and can be used in battle. The Heroes will only be unlocked on certain new game worlds, in order not to change the balance of already established worlds. English-speaking players can access the Heroes Feature either on the US-world Ithaca or the International world Mochlos.

Heroes are an entirely new kind of special unit. Each of the game’s Heroes is unique and has specific abilities. To be able to recruit a Hero, players must solve island quests in order to get either coins of war or coins of wisdom. Each hero can be assigned to one city from where they can be sent to battle as well. By investing coins of war or coins of wisdom, heroes can level up, which will improve their base values and the power of their special skills.

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 20 million registered users and is playable in 22 languages. The Grepolis Mobile App has recently been released for iOS and Android devices and can be downloaded for free on the iTunes App Store and the Google Play Store. It supports all major features of the browser version and is optimized for mobile screens and touch control.

With about 120 million registered players, InnoGames is one of the world's leading developers and providers of online games. Currently, the Hamburg-based company employs 300 professionals from 22 nations. InnoGames has scored major success with games such as Tribal Wars, Grepolis and Forge of Empires.
