Tibia is a classic 2D game from CipSoft that was one of the earliest MMOS. Released in 1997, the game features sprite graphics, a quest and job system, and a variety of monsters. There are many servers to choose from, with a mix of PvE and PvP-specific ones available. Tibia is still being updated and balanced, and still attracts thousands of players. The game is free to download and play, but a premium subscription is available that unlocks several more areas, reduces XP loss after death, allows use of the transport system and enables player owned homes, among other benefits.
CipSoft is celebrating a major milestone for Tibia Online, its 20th anniversary! Having launched on January 7, 1997, Tibia has seen over 30M player accounts created in over 200 countries worldwide. Current numbers indicate that over 100,000 players take part on a regular basis, no doubt in part fueled by YouTube's PewDiePie who called it his favorite game of all time.
Earlier this week, our community's interest was piqued by the news that a Tibia player had reached level 998 and would soon be ready to open the 'door of mystery' that can only be accessed at level 999. We had the opportunity to chat with Lead Product Manager Martin Eglseder about this and much more.
In Tibia, there is a mysterious door that until now has remained unopened. Called the Gate of Expertise for Level 999, no one player has attained such a lofty height....until now, or more accurately, sometime in the very, very near future. Tibia player 'Kharsek' has achieved level 998 and will soon be eligible to turn the knob on the door that was added as a "joke" over a decade ago.
The Tibia team has released a brand new trailer for the venerable title. The video gives a great look at game play in a title that has been around for a good long time. Check it out!
Tibia Online fans from the past and present will want to hit game servers for a fifteenth birthday celebration. Developers have a bunch of fun activities for players including GMs handing out rare items and more.
