Nuremberg/Munich, January 18th, 2021 – Just nine years ago today, in 2012, it all began – the free browser game Hero Zero launched its very first servers worldwide! Since then, the players have been trained as absolute superheroes, have joined forces to free the world from evil, and have always enforced justice in their homeland, the small superhero town of Humphreydale. Since the start, Hero Zero has always been on the rise. Today, the development team of Playata and the game publisher GamesGroup rightly celebrate the great success of their free2play title. 
Already in 2018, the 30 million mark of registered players was broken! Today, there are almost 34 million superheroes on 175 different global servers who enjoy daily missions, exciting adventures, varied in-game events and an assortment of continually updated features. Of course, the helpful items and cute sidekicks are not to be forgotten. 
Anniversary celebration in the superhero town of Humphreydale 
From January 17th, superheroes can look forward to an amusing anniversary break. In the game, heroes will find a special birthday gathering event on these days, which will surprise them with exclusive rewards. In addition, the casino opens its doors during the birthday event to celebrate the anniversary with high-quality rewards: while the regular rewards are doubled, this time the items and sidekicks are more powerful. As an extra highlight, parts of an exclusive hero set as well as two cuddly birthday sidekicks with special abilities await the heroes as casino prizes. 
At the moment, other unusual events and features are being tinkered with at full speed. Players can be excited... 
Happy Birthday, Hero Zero
