Hamburg, December 12, 2012. Browser game developer InnoGames just announced the upcoming inclusion of background music and sound effects in Grepolis. The free-to-play hit will soon receive a new version of the epic music theme and sound effects – including songs for specific gods.  For this purpose, the soundtrack, already known from TV-spots, was covered by the famous Brandenburg State Philharmonics with over 60 musicians. Video recordings from the theme song taping are available on YouTube. The new sound effects are planned for the beginning of 2013.

The covered theme song will also soon be heard in the upcoming TV-spot. The new in-game sounds will give players audible feedback for their decisions, which is intended to increase the game comfort and the atmosphere of the title. InnoGames plans to present more audio previews in the coming weeks.

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.
