In case you missed it earlier today, I was one of the special guests on a Google + Hangout w/ Spacetime Studios! Hosted by G4tv’s marvelous Ashley Esqueda and Spacetime’s Chief Visionary Officer Cinco Barnes, we discussed the joys (and flaws) and upcoming improvements to their new game, Dark Legends.
We also went over the pressing topics of biting developers, thumb workouts and of course, molesting hobos. Kudos to my fellow journalists in attendance; Beau Hindman from Massively.com and Carter Dotson from 148Apps.com.
If you’re into the Legends franchise or interested in finding a new online experience set in a medieval atmosphere, you’ll be excited to learn that Arcane Legends is coming out this Fall for iOS, Droid and Google Chrome!
Cinco describes it a little toward the end of our video, but here’s the low-down from the official press release:
Players will choose from three classes: powerful Warriors, devious Rogues or mysterious Sorcerers, each with their own set of abilities. Party members will be able to combine their abilities to unlock explosive combos for devastating effects. As players level, they choose to specialize in certain skills, allowing them to further customize characters to suit their play style.
The core of Arcane Legends is the groundbreaking combat system that will deliver the most fast-paced, action-oriented co-op and player-vs-player gameplay of any Legends title. Players will decide whether to use multiple quick attacks or take the time to charge up and land more destructive strikes. Determining when to utilize a fully charged “rage meter” that unleashes special high-powered attacks unique to each class will also be critical to success.
“With every Legends title we are focused on bringing something distinct to cross-platform gaming. With Arcane Legends we set out to create an action RPG with a clever and funny story, meaningful multiplayer gameplay and above all furious fast-paced tactical combat,” said Gary Gattis, CEO, Spacetime Studios.
The previous Legends titles, fantasy Pocket Legends, sci-fi Star Legends and horror Dark Legends have been downloaded more than eight million times, making it the world’s most downloaded mobile MMO series and the world’s largest cross-platform mobile/desktop MMO franchise.”
