LOS ANGELES, Calif.– May 25, 2010– SNAIL GAMES USA today announced the release date of Heroes of Gaia: Rise of the Guilds, the latest expansion of the groundbreaking MMO RTS browser game, Heroes of Gaia (HoG).

With Rise of the Guilds (RoG), Snail Games USA will take free-to-play MMO browser gaming to the next level.

The expansion contains a new Guild Battle system which will create a deep Guild-versus-Guild (GvG) competition element, along with personal rankings, equipment forging, a number of new high-level NPCs, and a multitude of new functional and vanity items in the HoG Shop.

“We are thrilled to give the HoG community things which they have been requesting for a long time.” said Scott Miller, CEO of Snail Games USA.“The Guild Battle system is unique in the world of F2P MMO games and the expansion is going to serve every level of player, from the most competitive guilds, who will have an opportunity to determine which is the supreme champion of HoG, to the novice player, who is just getting involved in the HoG community.”

The RoG expansion will officially go live across all HoG realms on the morning of Thursday, June 3 . Players will be able to log on instantly and access all of new HoG: RoG features at no cost and with no downloads.
