Gerhard Müller was a university student studying chemistry at the Technical University of Munich when he first created and published the online browser game, Travian. Travian was a runaway success and so, together with his brother Siegfried, he began the company Travian Games in 2005 with the intention of developing and publishing more browser-based multiplayer games. Thus far, their catalog includes games in which the player can manage a hotel (WeWaii), a Formula 1 team (United GP), and even a football club (GoalUnited). The company’s popular multi-player empire strategy game, Travian, has since been rebranded as Travian: Legends and continues to be one of the most popular browser games in the world.
The screen fades from white and you are presented with three options. The Gauls are a tribe known for its strong defense, having pushed the Romans away from their borders for decades. The Romans need no extensive introduction with their impressive armor and mastery in military strategy. And last but not least are the Teutons who have burnished themselves in the annals of history as a fighting force, nearly unmatched in their aggression. You can choose to be a hero in any one of these three tribes. Once you have chosen, it is up to you to build your kingdom whether as a king or a governor. History has already decided the fates of these tribes, but with your guidance, they might find a different destiny instead.
The entire artwork of Travian Kingdoms boasts updated graphics to make for a more visually expansive and impressive game. While the game maintains the familiar Travian character classes, military units, and tribes, they now come with an updated look that is still a distinguishable part of the Travian universe. Your hero is now extra customizable regardless of tribe and will have detailed armor and weaponry.
A More Complex Gameplay
In most strategy games involving kingdoms, the key player is the king. With Travian Kingdoms, you are given the option of becoming a king or a governor, and both have different methods with which they control the kingdom. There is also the added role of 'duke'. A king can appoint four dukes from the selection of governors. The duke themselves have various degree of influence over the running of the kingdom and can rise through their own ranks. The duke who climbs the highest can be crowned king should the previous king abdicate.
Travian Kingdoms boasts its own soundtrack, which is a first for any Travian game. The soundtrack is composed by industry veteran, Campbell Askew, who has worked on games like Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix and even won an Emmy for his work on HBO’s Band of Brothers TV series. So alongside the complex gameplay, players can enjoy a cinematic soundtrack that will bring out the drama of managing an ancient kingdom. You can also expect a more immersive experience with the enhanced background sound effects within the game.
