HEROES OF RINGS: DRAGONS WAR LAUNCHES ON MOBILE
Kongregate’s newest mobile title has a nice Ring to it…
SAN FRANCISCO, March 28, 2018 – Kongregate, a leading publisher of mobile, PC, and web games, teams up with Spanish indie studio Codigames to launch Heroes of Rings: Dragons War, the turn-based, free-to-play RPG, on iOS & Android devices.
Heroes of Rings: Dragons War starts players on an amazing 3D island, tasked with saving the world from evil creatures intent on destroying the Pillars of Creation. The turn-based RPG is driven by a compelling Hero collection structure and unique battle system. Players will develop complex strategies based on the Heroes they use, their skills, and the turns remaining until the enemies attack. Each Hero is customizable with “Rings,” special items that can be upgraded and combined to unleash a Hero’s true potential. Players can participate in Arenas and Raids to win resources and fame, and challenging monthly and weekly events complement the intense and engaging PVP modes.
“They’ve built gorgeous characters, stylized in a way that really demonstrates the ’90s cartoons that influenced them,” said Mael Novat, Kongregate producer, “from the eccentric mix of animals, humans and technology to the quality of the animations and bold colors. Whether you are in the middle of an enchanted forest or a Japanese temple, their unique style gives a magical vibe to the universe.”
Heroes of Rings: Dragons War also provides support for augmented reality — players can watch their battles unfold in front of them. Thanks to Apple’s ARKit, players can become a part of the action, move in between their characters and experience the game from a new point of view.
“Heroes of Rings will be our seventh game since the company was born in 2013,” said Francisco Martínez, CEO at Codigames. “Heroes of Rings’ game modes are based on learnings from those games. All the visual details and careful attention to battle mechanics are a direct result from the love born in those games.”
