Blizzard Brings Mayhem With New Warcraft Mobile Game

Blizzard has unveiled its new Warcraft mobile game, Warcraft Arclight Rumble.

Warcraft Arclight Rumble is a free action strategy mobile game that looks like a traditional game Warcraft strategy game with a cutesy, Foyer– looking for a tower defense twist. In it, players will choose from one of five types of leaders drawn from Warcraftt lore to command their troops or “minis” in battle. Players will be able to play in both PvE and PvP modes, earning gold to deploy more powerful minions to complete goals like defeating a raid boss.

Warcraft Arclight Rumble was first revealed buried in Blizzard’s quarterly earnings report in February. It represents Blizzard’s arm of the publisher’s push into creating original content for the mobile market accompanied by the upcoming Diablo Immortal and join Activision Call of Duty: Mobile and Kings candy Crush. Blizzard actually has two mobile games planned for the Warcraft franchise, the other being a very popular version Pokemon Go. At the end of last week, Bloombergit is Jason Schreier tweeted that the game had been scrapped.

Over the past few weeks, Blizzard has shared a slew of updates on many of its flagship properties. Last week, Diablo Immortala mobile version of the isometric CRPG got a June 2 release date, the most recent World of Warcraft expansion Dragonflight was announced, and Monitor 2 entered closed beta.

The rapid pace of announcements is clouded by the impending legal battles the company faces, including uncertainty surrounding CEO Bobby Kotick’s position after acquisition and a pending union vote by the QA department of one of its subsidiaries, Raven Software. The company is also still in the process of being taken over by Microsoft, with shareholders vote to approve the transaction last week.
