Xsolla is excited to announce a partnership with  CipSoft for their hit MMORPG title, Tibia.

Players of the longstanding MMORPG,  Tibia, can start taking advantage of  Xsolla’s 700+ alternative payment methods available worldwide to pay for in-game items and premium account upgrades. This partnership is especially beneficial towards individuals located around the world who, previously, could not pay with the available payment methods such as Paypal and Credit Cards. Xsolla’s payment solution provides a global localization of payments, enabling people of all ages to pay with their country’s most popular and preferred methods of payment.

About Tibia

Since it’s first launch back in 1997, Tibia has weathered the test of time as a free-to-play hardcore-fantasy-MMORPG. Although it is a free-to-play game that’s open to the public, players may purchase the premium account option to unlock various benefits including: additional areas to explore, access to promotional events, and extra spells.

According to  CipSoft’s  Tibia game page, there are currently over 500,000 active players around the world with 79 game servers/worlds available. Staying true to the hardcore style of the timeless MMORPG, Tibia boasts a very unforgiving death system which rewards players for meticulous planning and calculated risk-taking. Tibia can be played directly in the browser through a web client which makes it easily accessible. In addition, a stand-alone client is available for download on the official website.
