Nival Launching King’s Bounty: Legions on Facebook
For the first time in the history of the highly successful King’s Bounty series, gamers will get to take their turn at beating their friends as Nival, a global publisher of social strategy games, today announced it will publish, King’s Bounty: Legions. The title is a turn-based, social strategy game that will be available on Facebook this summer. King’s Bounty: Legions will introduce player-versus-player (PvP) combat, allowing gamers to prove who’s best among friends on Facebook.
“King’s Bounty: Legions is the very definition of a social strategy game, offering the combination of competitive, tactical gameplay with fun social interaction,” said David D Christensen, general manager of Nival’s North American operations and executive producer of King’s Bounty: Legions. “With its mixture of fun for both hardcore and social gamers, we like to think of King’s Bounty: Legions as the chocolate and vanilla swirl cone of Facebook gaming.”
King’s Bounty: Legions offers gamers an extensive and witty storyline and forty levels of gameplay to start. Gamers will advance by completing quests; engaging in tactical, turn-based combat; and hiring troops to manage within their armies. Gamers will be treated to multiple forms of combat including PvP battles against friends, PvE battles against challenging AI, and asynchronous battles; all of which will test users’ ability to strategically assemble the paramount army.
King’s Bounty: Legions will be a cross-platform title, appearing on Facebook, and later on the iOS and Android platforms. The game is being developed on the Unity 3D engine and aims to raise the level of graphic quality in social network games to a level normally reserved for a client experience.
Beta testing will begin this summer on Facebook, at which time, players will be able to play for free and may choose to purchase in-game items. Nival plans to support King’s Bounty: Legions with regular game updates featuring new troops, creatures, maps and quests.
