Including these two newly added translations, the high-quality mobile strategy MMO by Deep Silver FISHLABS is now available in English, German, French and Russian. Additional localizations will follow in the future. At the same time, the company has also released an elaborate gameplay trailer and a new landing page for the acclaimed sci-fi epic.

Besides a number of smaller enhancements in regard to the frontend and backend of the game, today’s update v1.3.0 called “Foreign Tongues” also contains a further optimization of the tutorial as well as the highly anticipated Facebook integration.

Furthermore, the new planet register in the commander profile of each player provides a quicker orientation and better overview of where your friends and foes are located. This is particularly helpful when you plan large-scale attacks or extensive reinforcement routes.

About Galaxy on Fire – Alliances

Galaxy on Fire™ - Alliances is the first multiplayer game set in the iconic Galaxy on Fire universe. As such, the title puts its players into the roles of up-and-coming commanders of the Terrans, Nivelians or Vossk. Far beyond the final frontier, in a hazardous yet all the more promising region of space called the Shroud Nebula, these commanders set out to erect strong outposts, harvest invaluable resources and claim highly competitive territories.
