GodsWar Online, IGG’s blockbuster 3D MMORPG based on ancient Greek mythology and culture, is now available to play on Facebook ( http://apps.facebook.com/godswar_online/).

Since it was launched in November 2008, GodsWar Online has been pushing boundaries as IGG continues to expand availability to more and more countries across the globe. On December 4th, IGG introduced the critically acclaimed hit to the social networking and gaming phenomenon known as Facebook. Now gamers can just log in to Facebook and start playing without having to download a large client file. It’s never been easier to join the fun and adventure as warriors from Athens and Sparta battle amazing creatures, not to mention each other, for the ultimate glory.

The browser-based version of GodsWar Online is almost identical to the client-based game, except for the default size of the game screen. While the default screen size may seem small at first, players also have the option to play in full-screen mode. Considering how easy it is to use Facebook to recruit friends to your cause, it’s no wonder longtime players and first-timers alike are eager to jump through this new gateway into the world of gods and monsters.

IGG is already planning to add more features and content to the browser-based GodsWar Online, so stay tuned for the latest developments. In the meantime, all you need to do is point your browser toward http://apps.facebook.com/godswar_online/ to try a game that can truly be called epic.
