On January 24th, NCSoft will launch its first mobile RPG in the west. Called Aion: Legions of War, the game challenges players to collect over 100 different heroes across several disciplines including tanks, DPS and healers. Players will be able to create almost innumerable combinations to create teams to take into dungeons, the PvP arena and more.
Aion: Legions of War is set in the same universe as the MMO, but is a single-player "story-driven RPG" that sends players on a journey to collect heroes, defeat bosses and collect loot. According to the press announcement, the "battles have MMO-level complexity perfected by NCSoft's 20 years in the MMORPG space".
Created by the original Aion development team at NCSOFT’s headquarters in Pangyo, Korea, Aion: Legions of War is a narrative-driven RPG that exudes depth of gameplay with MMO-level complexity. As player build up their collection of heroes, they will find over a billion combinations to bring into battle across a wide range of challenges, including PvP and Guild Dungeons. All of the intense action in Aion: Legions of War is presented in standard-setting high definition 3D graphics that push the limits of what’s possible on mobile devices.
The Aion: Legions of War site is now available. Fans will be able to learn more about the game through gameplay streams and other information over the coming weeks. The game is set for release on both Google Play and in the App Store starting January 24th.
