Tibia Celebrates its 20 Year Anniversary

It was announced by German game developer CipSoft, that their long-running MMO Tibia just celebrated its 20th anniversary. The game was launched on January 7, 1997 and it is one of the world’s oldest active role-playing games.

Check out the anniversary trailer of Tibia, featuring the 20 year timeline of the game:

“Tibia is a unique success story”, says Managing Director and CipSoft co-founder Ulrich Schlott. Stephan Vogler, Managing Director and co-founder, adds: “I’m happy and grateful that our student project has grown into such an MMO hit, supported by a very dedicated team and, most of all, by our wonderful players. Even after 20 years we’re not running out of ideas for Tibia – I’m sure the game will keep attracting players for years to come.”

“Tibia has still grown in player numbers over the last years and is currently played by more than 100.000 gamers every day (DAU). The single most well-known player was YouTube personality PewDiePie who last year confessed Tibia was his ”favourite game of all times” and the game he “wasted his teenage years” on. Over the course of twenty years 30 million user accounts were registered with Tibia, all growth stemming from word of mouth among gamers.

About Tibia

On 7th of july 1997 the first permanent public server has been set up running Tibia Alpha 1.0. The developers, four students from Regensburg, Bavaria, had been inspired by the early multi-user dungeons (MUD) and the technical options offered by emerging internet technologies. Tibia significantly differs from other MMO concepts by the use of tough gameplay rules: For example, if characters die they will lose a large part of their achieved experience. There is no level cap. In August 2016 a user did beat all records by reaching level 999.”
