Facebook’s Most Played Sports Game Comes to Android
Top Eleven hits one million players in a day as Nordeus releases mobile version
Belgrade, Serbia. October 20, 2011 – Nordeus, developers of Facebook’s most played sports game, Top Eleven, today announces that it has launched a mobile version of its game on Android. This follows on from the launch earlier this month of Top Eleven 2.0 on Facebook and TopEleven.com, bringing a huge number of new features to the game. This month Top Eleven also passed a milestone of having over one million users log in to play in one day.
With Top Eleven on Android, players can now easily pick up where they left off on Facebook and TopEleven.com, as the game stays in sync regardless of which device you play it on. Top Eleven is now available here as a free download from the Android Market.
Top Eleven lets would-be football (soccer) managers select, train and build their own squad of players to compete against friends and other players over the course of a 28-day season. Those at the top of the league can relish in the glory of promotion into the next league, facing tougher opponents and with the rewards of more money, better players and the lure of the Champions Cup. Managers are also responsible for every detail of running the club, from developing players careers, picking the best sponsorship deals and building new stadium facilities.
“Now our millions of fans of Top Eleven can take their team with them in their pocket wherever they go and make sure they don’t miss crucial games or transfer windows. We have worked hard as a team to make sure that the mobile versions of Top Eleven offer as full and rich an experience as the desktop versions of the game, allowing players to easily switch between different devices, but always be presented with the same game,” said Branko Milutinović, Nordeus CEO. “Top Eleven on Android allows you to never miss the big match and discreetly access and manage your team at critical moments, so that you can win the league even if in real life you’re stuck in a boring business meeting.”
Top Eleven on Android will also help teams improve their chances in the game by providing timely notifications and alerts for players reminding them to bid on the best strikers and hiring medics to overcome player injuries.
Top Eleven moving to mobile is key strategic move for Nordeus as a business that believes the future is multi-platform gaming. Branko Milutinović explains: “Our goal is to provide a compelling, social gaming environment regardless of the platform or device you’re using. With all your team information stored in the Cloud, you can now have the same experience against friends on Facebook, topeleven.com, or your smartphone.”
Top Eleven became the most played sports game on Facebook after it overtook gaming giant Electronic Arts’ EA SPORTS FIFA Superstars in June.
