This is region locked so you'll need a VPN.

Oh, and also - ITS AWESOME.

it's kind of like dungeon hunter 5 with some of the systems, but it's very different gameplay.
You don't control the movement of the hero directly, but instead control blocking and attacking, special moves, etc.

Tap left to block, tap right to attack. Hold right for a special attack, swipe and hold for changing targets, etc.
it's got a great rhythm to it and rewards you for playing smart instead of button mashing.
There's bloody executions and range attacks etc etc.
once you get the hang of it it's super fun.

Gear to collect and upgrade, skills to learn, etc.
Later on you unlock a keep that other players can attack. You populate the keep with soldiers and stuff that you collect.
That part is a bit like DH5 but again, you are attacking in waves with a more "rhythm one vs many" style.

Stylish and looking great so far. This is in Soft-launch so expect bugs and imbalances and don't rage-quit when something doesn't work, just be a good gamer and submit a bug report 🙏🏽

Looks ok. It's seems like a cool mechanic but, I'm assuming it's f2p with the need of a internet connection to play. I could be wrong though. I don't mean to be negative but I stop playing Gameloft's games since they strictly went f2p for their games. Most of their games have become Pay2Win. This could be different. I'll wait on impressions. If it's not the average f2p Gameloft game then I'll check it out. Good luck

It looks okay but nothing special.These past couple of years Gameloft dropped from the number one spot as a mobile developer and this game proves why.Once Gameloft was trying really hard to impress with graphical fidelity of their games because most of them were just rip-offs of stuff already out there(COD,GTA and others).Now they have lowered the graphical standard and started blending in with the rest of the developers on the mobile market.They went free to play and not like Madfinger Games but like Supercell.It's just,they don't make anything special anymore and can I just say-they have 4 different games in Softlaunch now,when will these games actually release?How many games will they softlaunch before one of them actually reaches all of us.I haven't played yet NOVA,GNO,the new Asphalt or this because of their region lock.

I'm really enjoying the combat in this, one vs. many kind of like assassins creed.
The graphics are beautiful for a tablet.
Also cool that your equipped gear levels up as you use it. Helps reduce grindiness.

There's actually a story in this too, with good voice acting and cutscenes. Feels more like a proper RPG than DH5
