Shakespeare said "All the world’s a stage…" but in GodsWar Online, ancient Greek Gods and Heroes share the stage, and the results are anything but graceful and elegant. More often than not they are downright ugly and brutal, as each fight for domination of the Greek Empire. Amazing graphics are on display everywhere in game, such as the solemn city of Sparta, the remote lonely desert, the verdant forests, the mysterious, dark swamps and the sunny beaches bordering the bright blue Mediterranean Sea.

Tibia is one of the oldest and most successful online role playing games (MMORPG) in Europe. At present, more than 300.000 players from all over the world inhabit the medieval world of Tibia. There are currently 74 game servers in the US and in Germany (state: November 2007).

In the fantasy world of Tibia thousands of players can set forth in search of virtual adventure in real-time.
