18.12.2013  Cultures Online is now Cultures Online HEROES

Dear Wikings and Asians,
In future, Funatics - the developers themselves - will be in charge of matters related to the game. In addition to the new game "Cultures Online Heroes", this will primarily result in faster responses with all community feature issues. Cultures Online Heroes will continue to remain part of the gamigo family. You can now look forward to an increase in the level cap, a new task system, and much more.

New missions and adventures await you

Numerous events and activities are waiting for you: Whether it's new quests on expeditions, extra non-storyline tasks in the village or achievements (e.g. for buildings), there will be a constant need for your decision-making skills as a tribal chieftain

Level cap is now 159! Onwards to undiscovered colonies!

The highest hero level that can be achieved is now 159. Players who have waited a long time for this feature will definitely look forward to this update. Furthermore, in distant America, there are now even more colonies awaiting Vikings and Asians. Set sail and conquer distant territories, where resources and treasures are just waiting to be discovered

Good things come in threes – XP for all!

If you take along multiple heroes on your ship on a mission, all of them will now receive the XP reward previously announced. This will allow your heroes to gain XP much faster

Falling prices in the Item Shop

Prices have been slashed for several popular items. We therefore urge you to visit your merchant in the village as soon as possible. Furthermore, the prices for a single visit to the main dungeon and the increase in euphoria in the colonies have also been reduced significantly. Have a look in the new Cultures forum for a detailed overview of all improvements and updates.

As you see, a visit to your village a visit will definitely be worth it. And if you log in within the next three days, you'll receive a one-off bonus of 50 runes!

18.07.2013  Bake a cake

"Pattycake, pattycake, baker's man... !

What would a birthday be without birthday cake? Seeing as a tasty birthday cake can't be missing from the Cultures Online birthday, we're looking for the best Cultures Online birthday cake.

Sending a cake via post is maybe a little unpractical. So we're looking for something along the lines of: ""You eat with your eyes"" photos from the prettiest Cultures Online birthday cake.

Bake a birthday cake for Cultures Online, adorn it Cultures style, and send us your birthday cake photo. All players who send their pictures to us by Sunday 21st July at 11:59 p.m. (one minute to midnight) at [email protected] will take part in the event.

To make it easier for you to bake a pretty cake, you'll find some tasty cake recipes here:

The basic ingredients for a simple tray-baked cake:

2 cups of sugar, 3 cups of flour, 1 cup of oil, 1 pack of vanilla sugar, 1 pack of baking powder, 1 cup of lemonade, 4 eggs, and a pinch of salt.

Just kneed all the ingredients together. Spread the dough on a greased baking tin. Then bake at 180 degrees for 40-45 minutes.

Adorn the cake with pretty colors (preferably edible ;)) or cover it in roll fondant and write a birthday greeting on it with frosting.
If you're super creative, maybe you could bake a cake in the form of your chieftain hall or your favorite hero?

But note: before you gnash up the cake, don't forget to take a photo of it and send it to us!

We will present all sent cakes so that we can see ourselves full. By participating in the event you agree to us presenting the pictures of the cakes.

Rules of the game:

- bake a cake adorned with Cultures motives and photograph it
- send the photo to: [email protected]
- by participating in the event you agree to us publishing the pictures of the cakes
- all photos that arrive by 21st July at 11:59 (one minute to midnight) will be counted for the event
- we will raffle the prizes amongst all entries
- Prizes: 1. place: xx global runes, 2. place: xx global runes, 3. place: xx global runes or 3x xx global runes

03.05.2013  Turbonia starts

We're celebrating the opening of Turbonia!
An exciting adventure through time awaits you from 6th till 27th May, 2013. Be there and see new things, game experiences, and make lots of new friends. We've assembled all new game goals for you and are offering ALL Cultures players the chance to come together on one server. There will, of course, be a chat channel for every language.

And here's how it works:
So pick out your favorite goal from the possible Turbonia goals which you think you will be able to accomplish, and work toward it. Turbonia begins with the start of the server at midday CEST on 6th May and finishes on 27th May, 2013. The server will still be available for a few hours after all events have ended,so that you can say goodbye to your new friends. From 28th May, 2013, we will publish the winners consecutively in the forum.

"Have pity on an old sea bear, come on. Thirst is worse than homesickness, but if you buy me a jug of mead I'll tell you what I've seen on my travels. Hey, landlord, make it a big jug and I'll talk even longer. Wouldn't be bad if it was clean, too! Do you think that you've seen a lot of the world? I don't think you were in the land of the giants and beat them at arm wrestling. Or were you already in the country where only women live? That was a good shore leave, I'll tell ya. Strangely enough, the captain wasn't in any hurry to sail on. Where was I? Oh yeah. If you set sail and keep course for the horizon, then you'll find an island after many days sailing. This mysterious island only emerges from the floods. It hides its secrets under the floods most of the time. Those who have heard of the island sail their ships to wreckage trying to get to the island, because the island beckons fame and fortune. The island is something special, because a powerful magic lies on the island. The magic makes everything speed up so that you can achieve a lot more. Many take the risk on this journey to make a fortune, but only the best, the bravest, and most skillful bring anything back from this journey. You see, the island sinks again after a while, down into the icy depths of the sea, and takes everything with it. Only those who are good enough can save something and take it home with them. All others can only tell tales of their deeds. And tell they do; the taverns are full of stories from this mysterious island. There are strange stories among them, told by people in foreign tongues about friendships that otherwise might never have been. Glorious heroic deeds that were committed. And they're all true. I was there myself. You don't believe me? Ha, by the spirits of the sea, then go on the trip and see the treasures yourself. Here, I drew up the map myself. It should show you the way. Shiver me timbers, may the winds show you the way!"

14.02.2013  The random event, Ragnarök, awaits you!


Dear village elders and tribe members,

Sometimes even the Gods argue. The Earth always quakes and the sea whips into the air when they are at loggerheads. Even in Cultures Online they can't always put aside their differences and then is when it gets pretty ugly in the Cultures world.

Human beings gather together to collectively offer to the Gods and define fate mercifully. They are ready to stand by the side of the Gods against Loki and his army.
It's up to you to safeguard the world from its conclusive fate. The Gods will reward you royally for your support. Týr, Heimdallr, and Víðarr offer you blessed equipment as reward for the salvation of the world.

Visit the Norns on their mountain south of your island and take on the challenge.

With the last server maintenance we have animated the mountain and now you can pay a visit to the Norns. They will put you in contact with the Gods.

We have summarized the most important questions concerning Ragnarök for you in the forum:…ar%F6k-%96-faq/

wysiwyg image

Hello Vikings and Asians!

Many of you are bound to have already spotted the mysterious mountain that has appeared just off the coast to the south of your village. On 19 January 2013 we want to give you opportunity to climb aboard your ships and set sail for the mountain. As this is a voyage into the unknown, it is virtually impossible to hazard a guess at the dangers that lie in wait, or to estimate how long the journey will take. Which is why we will grant you almost unlimited wanderlust for 24 hours. As on any voyage of discovery, the three most courageous and committed explorers will be rewarded with fantastic prizes that will be sent by post.
Perhaps your journey will give you a few hints as to what the mysterious mountain is all about. But be careful not to sail off the edge of the world, or you might end up in Valhalla.

The Great Journey event:

• Starts at 01:00 on 19 January 2013
• Gives each player 25,000 wanderlust
• The three players who have used the most wanderlust by 01:10 am on 20 January 2013 will be the winners. In case two people send us an email with the same amount of wanderlust, the winner will be the one who send the email the earliest
• To take part, you need to send a screenshot showing your hero’s name and how much wanderlust you have used in your travels. You can find both information at the mission start screen of any mission. Please email the screenshot to [email protected] before 01:10 am on 20 January.
