In the past couple of years, we have seen countless PC and console games get mobile ports. Back then, developers saw this as a way to promote brand awareness for their “main" titles. However, that has begun to change recently. For many franchises, the free spinoffs on mobile devices have generated enough revenue that developers and publishers are starting to see mobile more as a platform. Some mobile games have even become so successful that they actually impact the sales and design of the “main” franchises. Pokémon GO is a prominent example of this. The Switch titles Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! are practically made for fans of GO. Now, NCSOFT, the name behind the MMORPG Lineage, is also looking to get into the Western mobile game industry with the upcoming Aion: Legions of War. Check out its announcement trailer below:

Currently, the developer has not released an in-game trailer for the game, but from footages of beta gameplay available online, it will bring console-like graphics. Aion: Legions of War will also be free to play and it is scheduled to launch globally this month on both Android and iOS.

Epic multiplayer boss fights with console-quality visuals

Legions of War was developed by the original Aion team but its story will be completely separated from the PC version. This RPG will support both PvE and PvP and feature over 100 heroes for you to collect and build your legion with. Additionally, you will have several epic boss encounters to look forward to, from giant horned demons to a majestic griffin.
