Late last week, we saw Blizzard put up the announcement page for what was believed to be its upcoming Warcraft mobile title. The announcement has happened, and the company has unveiled what is called Warcraft Arclight Rumble.
The game is described as a mobile strategy character collector that’s also claimed to be “fast-paced”. On that front, the devs claim that there are over 60 heroes and villains from the Warcraft franchise to collect in Arclight Rumble. These characters represent five factions, from the classic Alliance, Horde and the undead, to the Blackrock orc clan on Draenor, and the assortment of wild beasts consolidated as a single faction.
Warcraft Arclight Rumble has a “vast PvE campaign” as well as dungeons, raids and PvP. Pretty standard stuff to expect from a game these days. Blizzard also describes the game as “tower offense”, or a twist on the more traditional tower defense genre where you capture towers instead of build them. Or, in simpler terms, picture Warcraft-themed Clash Royale.
With all that said, Warcraft Arclight Rumble is not quite ready for a full release yet. Blizzard says that a closed beta is coming to limited regions soon, though it looks like the Android version already has a page on the Google Play Store for pre-registrations. You can hit the link below if you’re interested in being included in the future betas.
