IGG’s Ethan Pan shared the following details about a new expansion being created for GodsWar Online. He encourages all players to offer feedback and help improve the design process. What would you like to see happen when players get the chance to experience the Battle of Thermopylae?
Okay, this idea sounds a little wild, and I need a second opinion on it. I came up with a new theme that might be of great interest to all our GWO players. The game has been out for months now, and I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that a good percentage of them are lacking the drive to advance further. Many have maximized their Exp and defeated the ultimate boss in the game. Naturally, they may find the game to be less challenging than before. To spice things up, the workaholics in the GWO lab decided to take our players on a journey through time. We want to fast-forward them to the Battle of Thermopylae and give them a chance make their mark on this historic conflict. How cool would it be to take on the Persian army with Leonidas and his 300 Spartans?
The setting should be quite familiar to those of you who are fans of the movie 300. Thermopylae is where 300 Spartans, led by King Leonidas, fought a valiant battle to keep the million-strong Persian army at bay. A narrow passage between a cliff and the sea, known as the “Hot Gates,” served to funnel the Persians as they tried to get past the Spartans’ phalanx formation. With Xerxes, the Persian God-King, determined to conquer Greece, all Leonidas and his men could hope to do was put up a good fight. The battle ended with the deaths of Leonidas and his Spartans in defeat. Xerxes advanced farther into Greece, where the Battle of Plataea took shape. But it doesn’t have to end that way; we can rewrite history. At least, in the game we can.
