Update: End of maintenance

Our servers are back online! Thank you for your patience!
Important for Facebook & Website players: Clearing the browser’s cache and refreshing the game can help to fix loading problems or issues while playing.



New version of the web launcher available!

Dear Gauls,
a new version of the Asterix&Friends Xsolla launcher is available! If you already installed the launcher, you just need to restart it – the launcher will update itself. It is still possible to play the Flash version of Asterix&Friends via the launcher.
The new download link is: https://installer.launcher.xsolla.com/xlauncher-builds/launcher_builds/7183/3262/prod/web_installer.exe
We advise players, in particular those who receive an error message when loading the game and therefore cannot play Asterix&Friends, to use the launcher until we’ve found a solution.
Important: Facebook players need to have their usual Facebook village swapped with a village that has been registered in the launcher or on the asterix-friends.com website by our support team. The ” Facebook Login ” button in the launcher creates a village of the web version with Facebook login credentials instead of allowing you to log in with a village of the Facebook version!
For the swap, Facebook players need to contact the support team with the names or IDs of their Facebook village and the website village, either via mail to support@asterix-friends.com or via the ticket form: https://sproing-support.zendesk.com/hc/en-us (click on “Submit a request” in the top right corner).

Your Asterix & Friends Team

If necessary, delete the cache and/or the cookies of your browser if you cannot load the game directly on the first attempt.
Please note that the launcher that we have provided as a fallback option for our web version players to continue playing the Flash version won’t work properly for the time being. We will inform you about this later.

Please see the following release notes for currently known issues and missing content in the Unity version:
