Friday, September 8, 2017 — Today, InnoGames announced the relaunch of its mobile strategy game Warlords under the new name Warlords of Aternum. The update comes with a series of new features, additional content and new balancing. From now on the new version is available in the Google Play Store and App Store. Already existing accounts don’t lose any game progression with the release of the update. InnoGames acquired Warlords from Berlin-based studio Wooga in February this year.
One of the biggest changes of the update is the new Warlord Level. This new feature will essentially track the overall progression of a player based on regiment upgrades. Regiment upgrades grant Warlord XP. Once a player has earned enough Warlord XP to fill up their current level progression, they’ll move to the next Warlord Level. This way, players are more motivated to not only level up their favorite 2-3 regiments but also play with newly unlocked regiments for more diversity in the game.
Additionally, the update features a new boss called Drrakha. The new enemy becomes available as a new point of interest on the map. Drrakha can drop his own shards when defeated, and he is also likely to drop shards for a brand-new regiment called League’s Predators. The new unit comes with the abilities Impale which deals 100% more physical damage and Embrace the Pain which leads to 20% less damage from enemies.
Philip Bang, Studio Director InnoGames: “Warlords was already a great game when we acquired it back in February but now it’s even better! Over the last months, our new Warlords team invested a lot of time and energy into analyzing the game and the player preferences. With this first update, we keep the fun parts of the game, add more content and features and optimize the overall game experience. We’re looking forward to the players’ feedback and are already working on new updates for the future.”
