It’s already been a hit in China and online, so the next logical step for Wartune was to make it to mobile devices. That’s a reality now, as Kabam launched Wartune: Hall of Heroes, its massive multiplayer strategy RPG, this week for both iOS and Android.
Developed by Beijing studios 7Road and Hoolai, Wartune: Hall of Heroes was one of the most prominent games to be licensed through Kabam’s $50 million development fund that seeks out popular titles in Asia and brings them to Western markets. Its mix of solo campaign and multiple PvP modes brings a little something different to the table from other fantasy RPGs, helping it to become a top-1o grossing app in China. It’s also been bringing in $30 million a month in revenue at Kabam.com, giving the publisher confidence that it would be a top mobile performer as well.
“Kabam is unique among the world’s mobile games companies in our ability to identify hit games in Asia that we adapt and make popular in Western markets,” Kabam Publishing President Amit Ranade said in a press release. “We expect Wartune: Hall of Heroes to be as significant a hit internationally as it has been in China.”
As for the gameplay, here’s how Kabam describes it:
Players are immediately immersed in a fantasy world where hundreds of players can fight together simultaneously to defeat enemies and monsters, quest for more territory, farm and fortify holdings, and collect magical stones to enhance the armor and weapons of their hero.
