12/29/2014 - Nikita Online and Boyojoy Launch Clash of Olympus
NIKITA ONLINE and Boyojoy Launch Clash of Olympus via GameXP Connect

29th of December 2014, Moscow. — NIKITA ONLINE and Boyojoy are pleased to announce the Russian release of web-based side-scrolling MMORPG Clash of Olympus on the GameXP entertainment web-portal.

Almost 12 million Russian-speaking users will be instantly introduced to Clash of Olympus following the game’s release on the GameXP entertainment web-portal owned by a leading Russian online games publisher and developer NIKITA ONLINE.

“Considering the sheer number of Russian-speaking users our game is going to be exposed to after the launch on GameXP, we deem our cooperation with NIKITA ONLINE as a matter of strategic significance,” states Boyojoy’s COO Leo Wang.

Clash of Olympus (
http://bb.gamexp.ru/) may give an impression of an arcade platform game to those watching it being played from behind somebody else’s shoulder. Why is it so? Well, first of all, Clash of Olympus is a side-scroller, which means that all the characters move mostly from left to right and vise versa. Secondly, Clash of Olympus is marked by intense gameplay uncharacteristic of any typical RPG. And the third thing to complete the illusion is the game’s fiercely flamboyant visuals. Only after spending some time here on his or her own can a player discover the true nature of Clash of Olympus: it is a real MMORPG with class system, PvP and PvE modes, pets, quests and more!    

GameXP Connect will grant the Clash of Olympus an opportunity to reach fast-growing audience of the entertainment web-portal GameXP (

http://channeling.gamexp.ru/). Such companies as Gala Lab., RosIgra, Labbit Games, Vision Games, Crazy Bit, Amber Games, Oofsource, Aratog Games and Boyojoy have already appraised this platform’s advantages.

NIKITA ONLINE was founded in 1991 and became the first game company in Russia. It has two offices — in Moscow and Rostov-on-Don. Currently NIKITA ONLINE operates in Russia, CIS and the Baltic states with 22 MMO and browser-based titles, including social and mobile game The Panic Room: Outrage. The company has developed more than 100 titles and localized more than 70. Today there are more than 11.8 million unique users registered in NIKITA ONLINE’s projects.
