Wikia, Inc. (http://www.wikia.com), the leading provider of community resources for building and organizing free content on every topic, today announced the launch of the Wikia Gaming Network with more than 250,000 articles -- making it the most comprehensive online resource for information on popular video and computer games.
Visited by more than 3 million hard core gamers each month, The Wikia Gaming Network is home to community run sites for over 400 games, including the best selling games franchises World of Warcraft http://www.wowwiki.com , Halo http://halo.wikia.com , Everquest http://eq2.wikia.com , and Final Fantasy http://ffxiclopedia.org , among others.
The Wikia Gaming Network allows any visitor to the site to edit or contribute content, giving passionate gamers the opportunity to build off one another's gameplay mastery. Most recently, these volunteers have been busy building new wikis for highly anticipated fall releases such as Richard Garriott's Tabula Rasa, Mass Effect and Age of Conan.
"The Wikia Gaming Network is a fast-growing collection of communities with all the key elements of a successful multi-player environment," said Angelique Shelton, Manager, Wikia Gaming Network. "Passionate, hard-core users who value being able to share information about their favorite games enable millions of fans who visit every month to learn and become more involved in the game. Together we're building the single largest guide to gaming on the Internet."
