United Kingdom - November 13, 2012 - Torn, the world's largest text based browser game is continuing to grow, becoming a monster in its class.

Creator and owner of the crime themed RPG, Joe Chedburn, has recently invested heavily in both infrastructure and staff. With 11 shiny new dedicated servers, latency is expected to be a thing of the past, paving the way for a whole host of new ground breaking features, improved UI and awesome designs.

New features due to launch soon include a fully interactive map of Torn City, complete with pan and zoom. The detailed map displays areas of the city to buy and trade weapons, the docks to buy & sell cars, army base, industrial areas, red light district, airport and much more. The map will become a key component of the game playing an integral part of faction warfare and missions.

Other key features coming in 2013 include:

  • New and improved UI
  • New attacking system
  • New crimes and sub crimes
  • Responsive design for mobile devices
Watch this space; Torn is set to make a big comeback in 2013 - with the world's largest text based game set to become even BIGGER and BETTER. The buzz is already brewing with Torn City's Facebook following growing aggressively.
