The Ville has joined the ranks of Zynga games like CityVille and CastleVille, and is now available to play on Zynga.com. If you've yet to try Zynga.com, Zynga's web portal is an incredible improvement over just playing on Facebook, as it combines your Facebook friends with thousands or even millions of other players that can also help you out in your games.
In the case of the Ville, you'll simply need to head to Zynga.com and login with Facebook Connect. This ensures that your game progress carries over, as will your Facebook friends. However, where things truly get interesting is when you actually start to play the Ville, as any news posts you publish to your Facebook News Feed will also be published to the Zynga.com ticker, where it will be viewed by thousands of other players that can all click on your links. Needless to say, you'll have whatever you were looking for in a flash and can quickly make progress back in your game.
Furthermore, the move to Zynga.com sees players being able to take advantage of their existing zFriends, who may have only played other games before. With this addition on Zynga.com, you can find plenty of additional neighbors that you can send requests to (and receive items from) all without giving up the privacy associated with your actual Facebook profile.
It's unknown when other Zynga games will join the catalog of other games on Zynga.com, but you can be sure we'll let you know if and when others are added to the service. Stay tuned!
Will you start playing the Ville on Zynga.com, or do you already make enough steady progress in your favorite games without it? Sound off in the comments!
