After canceling its version of Pokémon Go, Blizzard is ready to return to the mobile world with Warcraft Arclight Rumble, a new title announced last night with a live online. There is no official release date yet, we only know that it will be available by the end of the year, but from the first movie related to the game mechanics it is clear that Blizzard is going to undermine the great success of Clash Royale in the world of competitive strategies in real time. If you want on the official website it is already possible to pre-register to try it.
Warcraft Arclight Rumble is in fact a title in which we will have to collect more than 60 characters belonging to the world of Warcraft, from great heroes such as Jaina Proudmoore, Sylvanas or Grommash to the most common characters such as the guards of the alliance, goblins and other creatures that any player of World of Warcraft he met in his adventures. Each of them will obviously be equipped with special powers and characteristics that will make it particularly suitable to face certain enemy units in a sort of paper / scissor / stone in real time where it will be essential to decide which unit to deploy among those available at the moment based on those present. on the battlefield, its cost, and any other units we might want to deploy to create a synergy.
The most interesting aspect is that compared to the competition Warcraft Archlight Rumble will also offer a full-bodied single player campaign consisting of over 70 levels located in the main settings of the game. Normally in this type of titles, after a short tutorial, you fight exclusively against human opponents in a series of leagues of increasingly good players, using the points obtained to upgrade your units and compose an army that is suitable for the strategy we want to use. , but in this case there will also be a lot of scenarios featuring some of World of Warcraft’s most famous monsters and opponents.
An interesting choice to approach the genre who may not feel like challenging human opponents and to practice before wanting to compete to become the strongest in the game, which in some ways recalls a strategy also used on the other Blizzard mobile game: Heartstone. , where it is also possible to face scenarios against the computer. In the first trailer, other modes are also promised such as dungeons, raids and a cooperative mode, we will soon see how all this will translate into the game mechanics.
The atmosphere of Warcraft Arclight Rumble is very light-hearted and can count on characters and settings much loved by an audience that has known them for about 25 years. It will be interesting to see if Blizzard will once again be able to establish itself in an established genre and understand how it intends to keep the title alive with balances or new scenarios and, above all, what kind of monetization it intends to adopt.
