Nival and KranX Productions are pleased to announce the release of King’s Bounty: Legions on Kongregate’s online gaming platform. The popular gaming portal is a leading destination for everything from simple arcade games to hardcore RPG titles.
“King’s Bounty: Legions coming to Kongregate is a new stage for introducing our game to worldwide audience. Even at prelaunch process we were extremely excited about friendly and professional approach from platform. And we’re happy to see hundreds of thousands players exploring world of King’s Bounty: Legions. We like real games as much as they do, “says Andrey Kuzmin, president of KranX Productions.
King’s Bounty: Legions is the world’s first 3D social strategy game and was named “best game for social networks” by KRI in 2011. Built on the Unity development engine, the game features rich 3D graphics ins a browser game, almost indistinguishable from other games in the King’s Bounty series. King’s Bounty: Legions featured the first opportunity on Facebook to fight your friends in real time PvP-battles.
“While creating King’s Bounty: Legions, we wanted to reach a worldwide audience of core-gamers. The early response from Kongregate users placed us in the site’s top games, indicating that we’ve chosen the right strategy and the right partner for that”, – says Ivan Fedyanin, the executive producer of King’s Bounty: Legions.
Recent updates to the King’s Bounty: Legions were aimed at further developing the RPG component. Loot you earn during battles can now be used to create equipment for the player’s avatar. Gamers can craft swords, helmets, shields and armor to help build a powerful Legionnaire army.
“We are thrilled to bring an awesome game like King’s Bounty: Legions to Kongregate’s audience of hard core gamers”, says Jim Greer, CEO and co-founder of Kongregate. “This is another example of a world-renowned title migrating from leading social networks onto our gaming-focused platform where over 80% of our users have the necessary Unity plug-in to play these 3D games.” Jim adds that “King’s Bounty: Legions is a great game that combines turn-based strategy with console quality graphics; a perfect fit for our audience of 17 million unique monthly gamers.”
Before Kongregate, the turn-based strategy game was only available on Facebook and Odnoklassniki in Russia, where games are not the primary focus of the users. Access to a dedicated gaming audience on Kongregate, combined with their reputation and history of successful launches and promotion, will open new opportunities for the development of King’s Bounty: Legions while increasing its audience.
