Digital Hub firm pushes out Europe’s biggest online RPG

16 Dec 2009

Gala Networks Europe, the Dublin-based European subsidiary of online PC games firm Gala-net, has today entered phase two of its beta testing for Allods Online, Europe’s biggest ever MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game).

The Digital Hub-based company has opened three dedicated servers for English, French and German language versions of the MMORPG, a free-to-play space opera.

As online role-playing games such as Warcraft have gained much popularity in the past couple of years, Allod’s subscription-less model with player-built and player-controlled elements, developed by games firm Astrum Nival, is one of several MMORPGs in Gala’s portfolio.

Gala Networks, started in 2006, also hosts, publishes and distributes Flyff, Rappelz, Street Gears and Dragonica.

It’s games portal now has more than 2,000,000 regular users. With Allods Online publicly available in 2010, three more games are on the way in the next year: Canaan Online, Castle of Heroes and Project 9.
