Sparta: War of Empires brings MMO RTS to Facebook

Sparta: War of Empires is a Facebook game, but take your coat back off – it looks pretty sweet.

From Plarium, the developer of Soldiers Inc, the new MMO RTS is set in Greece in the Fifth Century. Players use diplomacy in addition to warfare to protect their city-state, in collaboration with the forces of Sparta.

Plarium is very proud of the game’s 3D graphics – unusual for a Facebook game – as well as audio and challenge level. It plans to release new content regularly, including characters, maps and missions.

See the trailer below, and give it a whirl on Facebook.
