InnoGames today announced the return of the highly popular Grepolympia event in the award-winning free MMORTS game, Grepolis. The annual event has proven to be one of the most popular of its kind as thousands of Grepolians flock to the ancient islands to participate in the most fiercest competition available. Players are tasked with training their proteges and preparing them for the difficult trials that lay ahead.
Athletes participate in 4 difficult disciplines including archery, javelin throw, hoplit race and theiconic chariot race. Each competition lasts for an entire week with the full duration of the event running for the next 4 weeks. There’s plenty of incentives to get involved as players can earn laurels for competing, each of which can then be exchanged for bonuses, unique spells and rare resources.
