Terra Militaris: First Huge Expansion Announced

Gala Networks Europe, one of the leading free-to-play games publishers and the operator of the www.gPotato.eu portal, is delighted to announce the first major expansion for Terra Militaris, which will be rolled out across all servers in the upcoming weeks. The expansion “Conquest” brings with it a wealth of new content and an expansive list of fixes and tweaks across every aspect of Terra Militaris’ sophisticated MMORTS design.

New gameplay content comes in the form of Trials of the Champion, a new instance for high-level players. As the most significant instance to be included so far in Terra Militaris, Trials of the Champion contains 50 levels of play and can be challenged once every 24 hours. Each level of the instance will give players fame, EXP and items on completion and with 50 levels to be defeated, Trials of the Champion is an excellent raid for players looking to vastly increase their fame when aiming for the Domination or Imperial Eras in Terra Militaris’ end-game. To compliment this epic instance, two new PvP modes will be added in the form of Siege War and Famous City War. Siege Wars allow players to raid each other’s camps [for world advantage and pillaged loot], and Famous City Wars involve players taking the fight directly into the territories and cities of their enemies’ civilizations!

In addition to the main gameplay features, Conquest will also see the opening of an auction house for players to trade gear, skills and powerful unique items. Players will also be able to obtain special forging items in order to boost the stats of weapons, armour and other items. A new lottery system called the ‘Orbs of Fortune’ will also launch with the expansion, which allows players to exchange coins for items and allows one free use per day, with the chance of winning rare heroes for the player’s Terra Militaris army.

On top of the gameplay additions and updates, Conquest also includes a huge range of tweaks and balances and some significant changes. The game’s UI will be significantly overhauled to increase ease-of-use and visibility. Hotkeys will also be implemented for issuing commands and navigating menus quickly.

Terra Militaris is completely free-to-play via browser on PC and Mac, with no downloads or subscription fee required.  For more information or to join in the fun players can simply register at the official website at http://terra.gpotato.eu. Existing gPotato.eu account holders are invited to log back in and start playing instantly. Terra Militaris is currently available in Polish, English, German and French.

Managing Editor of ManaPool, Peter lives in York, UK and is a great fan and master of turn-based strategy games. If he isn't playing one of those, you'll probably find him in a role-playing game instead. He's definitely not afraid to provide a straight up opinion on any game and has a strong like for indie developers. We all start small, after all.
