Happy Birthday the West: Celebrating 5 magnificent years!

Hamburg, April 30th, 2013. From April 30– May 7 th 2013, InnoGames celebrates the fifth birthday of its western frontier browser game, The West. Players can look forward to more than one special event– aside from a birthday quest line with amazing rewards, active players can pick up an experience bonus, a unique achievement and rare bonds: the longer they’ve played The West, the more bonds they’ll get!

The celebrations start on April 30th with the unique achievement“Took part in the West’s 5th birthday,” for every player who logs in. There will also be a 20% experience bonus on all activities on the game. The quest line will also start that day, but will be playable until may 7 th. Whoever completes the birthday quests will gain a special party set as well as a part of the holiday set. But the biggest reward is yet to come: Players will get up to 1000 bonds, depending on the date their game character was created. Only characters that date back to The West’s first year will receive the full amount. Bonds are one of the game’s most valuable resources.

The West is a role-playing browser game set in the Wild Frontier. Players are placed on a hunt for adventure, gold and fortune. Cowboys and cowgirls partake in interesting and exciting stories, help settlers and collect bounties.
