Arclight Rumble is Blizzard’s big mobile game reveal


For weeks now Blizzard has been teasing a mobile entry in the Warcraft franchise, which was built up as an Earth-shattering reveal. That time has come, and it’s called Warcraft: Arclight Rumble.

Described as “Warcraft at your fingertips,” this new game is a “mobile action strategy game” that looks very similar to a lot of other competitors on the market. It’ll sport a “massive single player campaign,” as well as head-to-head PVP, prompting players to control armies and heroes to take on “bosses and characters from the Warcraft universe.” You’ll also “collect over 60 minis” as part of the game’s progression system, across the playable factions of Alliance, Horde, Beast [Gnolls are seen in the trailer], Undead, and Blackrock. “Raids” and co-op play with guilds are teased.

The theme is extremely zany, in a completely over-the-top fashion (a little too much upfront) as was evident from the developer reveal. Warcraft: Arclight Rumble is set to debut this year, and pre-registrations are already live now on Android (it’s also coming to iOS). You can find the full website for the game here.

While I’ll wait to play it to judge, this entire thing felt like it was done under duress at the behest of Activision.
