PLAYRAVEN UNLEASHES GALACTIC REAL-TIME STRATEGY MAYHEM WITH THE WORLDWIDE iOS RELEASE OF ROBOCIDE™
Former Remedy, Rockstar and Supercell developers launch the first of three fully original mobile games coming in 2016
HELSINKI – Feb. 24, 2016 – PlayRaven has released Robocide™, a galactic adventure and brand-new micro RTS (real-time strategy) game, now available worldwide on iPhone and iPad devices. Created by ex-console and mobile industry veterans, Robocide lets players traverse the galaxy with a legion of robots at their command in order to fight against an imminent robot invasion.
“2016 is going to be a huge year of releases for us, and we’re excited to kick it off with Robocide,” said Lasse Seppänen, co-founder and CEO at PlayRaven. “Our mission is to bring fresh new entertainment to the App Store, and Robocide fits the bill perfectly. We look forward to seeing how our fans and new players dive into the experience.”
In Robocide, humanity is on the brink of collapse from robot attackers, and it’s up to players to fight back. Using intuitive one-finger controls, players command a powerful swarm of robots across a series of battlefields, hostile planets and multiplayer arenas, while also collecting upgradable Titans, highly powerful heroic robots with unique abilities that will tear through the competition. Players will travel far and wide to harvest resources, customize their fleet, destroy evil robots and take back the galaxy.
Robocide marks the first of three all-new releases from PlayRaven launching in 2016. It is also the first PlayRaven title to support Apple Watch, with a companion app available now.
Robocide is out now as a free download via the App Store on iPhone and iPad devices. More information about the game can be found at www.robocidegame.com. For the latest news from PlayRaven, follow the company at www.facebook.com/PlayRavenInc or @PlayRavenInc on Twitter.
