Nival to bring social strategy game King's Bounty: Legions to Facebook this summer
Russian PC game developer Nival has announced today that they will be bringing the first ever social installment in the King's Bounty series - King's Bounty: Legions - to Facebook sometime this summer. Widely considered to be the predecessor of the Heroes of Might and Magic series, Nival hopes to capitalize on the franchise's existing fan base, along with introducing the brand to the unfamiliar. Taking the turn-based strategy gameplay that the series is known for and adding a social twist, King's Bounty: Legions will present players with an in-depth storyline spread across 40 initial gameplay levels.
Gameplay sees users primarily taking part in strategic, turn-based battles on a honeycomb grid, while completing quests along the way. You'll be able to manage your armies by hiring additional troops, and will be able to choose from multiple forms of combat based on your tastes. You can enter into PvP combat, taking the fight to your Facebook friends, or PvE battles, which see you fighting against intelligent AI armies. Regardless of the battle you enter, you'll need to use strategy to win, so I'd expect a fairly in-depth user interface and tons of gameplay customization options to accompany the game's release.
