Games on Social Networking sites such as Facebook are all the rage – when I check in on Facebook my home page is filled with information at how my various friends are progressing in things like Mafia Wars or Farmville. Similarly, there are plenty of fun games that folks play on MySpace, others that are Flash-based Web games, and still others that folks play on their iPhone. The problem – leaving one social network means leaving that game behind. But now that has changed – read on to find out!
Sigster’s new cross-network game Urban War is a MMO (massively multiplayer online) game that works with a single user account across all application locations – so you can play in Facebook, then on the web, and soon on your iPhone, and all of your progress is tracked! Best of all, it is free to play the game as much as you want, but there are options to buy stuff to accelerate your progress (hey, they have to pay for this all somehow!)
Here is the press release:
Sigster, LLC. announces the release of Urban War, the first true cross-platform social game that offers users a full-fledged in-game social network with a single account across multiple platforms including Facebook, Myspace, UrbanWar.com, and soon to be released on the iPhone. The consistency across multiple platforms and devices combined with a simpler user interface makes it extremely convenient and easy to navigate, but almost impossible to quit.
Urban War is a fast paced strategic role-playing game that will challenge the instincts to exist in a world laid to waste by greed and violence. Players join and grow their factions by engaging in conflict, creating alliances, completing missions, and mastering advanced technologies to climb their way up the leader boards and gain rule over the city.
With Urban War’s buy or earn achievement points system, players can accumulate achievement points free of charge to advance their character by simply playing the game, successfully completing missions, unlocking special bonuses and much more. For players that want to accelerate the advancement of their character, the purchase of achievement points is also an option.
Intuitive navigation, a comprehensive user interface, and a unique graphical player guide enhance the player experience for social media game veterans and novices alike.
Urban War is by far the most user-friendly online social game available to players today and a fresh innovative alternative to existing cookie cutter games that currently dominate the space.
“The online social gaming space is booming right now, and I felt it was time someone needed to take social games to a whole new level. By providing players with a consistent gaming experience across a number of different platforms and devices plus rewarding them with countless ways to earn free achievement points we believe Sigster and Urban War will raise the bar and satisfy the loftier expectations of gamers today. Quite simply, Urban War is the next evolution of how social games will be played.” – says Eric Signorile, the CEO and founder of Sigster.
