Activision Blizzard announces its upcoming game for later release.

Warcraft Arclight Rumble

With a cinematic trailer, Blizzard revealed its new mobile video game. Called Warcraft Arclight Rumble, the game takes many cues from the wildly popular Warcraft franchise.

Players will get to build and lead armies of popular Warcraft characters into battles against villains on numerous levels. Armies grow in strength with over 65 minis that players can acquire. Each comes with skills and upgrades that unlock as players level-up.

Warcraft Arclight Rumble players can choose leaders from five categories or factions - Alliance, Horde, Beast, Blackrock, and Undead. 

The video game, available for both Android and iOS mobile devices, will feature multiple game modes, including Conquest, Dungeons, Raids, and Co-Op. Players get the options of single-player campaigns and PvP mode. There are more than 70 single-player missions to adventure through.

This tower offense game first came to light in February when Blizzard gave a sneak peek while announcing its 2021 Q4 earnings. It is the publisher’s third mobile game after Hearthstone, and the now-canceled Pokemon Go Warcraft game.

Warcraft Arclight Rumble will be a free-to-play game when released at a yet to be defined date. Players can pre-register for its pending beta version on the game’s website.

Meanwhile, Activision Blizzard is still facing a barrage of scrutiny and legal challenges over issues like sexual harassment and misconduct. This has thrown a shadow over its record fee proposed acquisition by Microsoft. That said, the company’s shareholders voted overwhelmingly in favor of the deal last week.
