'8Realms' Announced, Closed Beta Test Soon

8Realms is a new social empire-building strategy game where players grow their empires from humble village to glorious dominions through eight ages of history.

“8 Realms has been developed from the ground up to appeal to players with a passion for strategy gaming but who have been left underwhelmed by the social games available today,” said Mark Gerhard, CEO at Jagex. “With 8 Realms we saw a massive opportunity to push the technological boundaries of HTML games. Jagex has traditionally been an innovator in browser gaming and we saw this as our chance to bring a fresh perspective to the social space and the empire-building genre.”

8Realms will be available to play for free on any internet capable device, in any web browser, allowing anyone with a computer, netbook, tablet or smartphone to become masters of their empire wherever they are. 8 Realms is set to break new ground for Jagex as their first fully HTML game, accessible on any device without the need for plug-ins such as Java or flash.

For a chance to be selected for the beta, players simply need to ‘like’ the 8Realms Facebook page.
