Your rule is limited to iOS, Android in King's Bounty: Legions for mobile [Updated]
Update: A Nival representative tells us that this information is incorrect. "We are developing the mobile/tablet version to be the same King's Bounty: Legions you are playing now on Facebook," the representative said. King's Bounty: Legions for iOS and Android will be compatible with the Facebook version.
The reach of your mobile armies has just been cut a bit short. Speaking to Pocket Gamer at the Gamescom conference in Cologne, Germany, Nival Interactive said that the Facebook and mobile versions of King's Bounty: Legions will not enjoy cross-platform gameplay. Basically, those who play on iOS and Android will not be able to dominate those on Facebook, and vise versa.
King's Bounty fans will have to download the app and start all over again with a mobile squad of peasants in the first town. Eventually, they'll be able to duke it out hexagonal-like with their fancy smartphone-having friends. This will likely limit the pool of opponents you'll have upon launching the game. Though, we're sure the fact that King's Bounty: Legions for iOS and Android devices will be free-to-play, just like its social cousin, will pique your interest.
The game, a social revival of a classic fantasy strategy franchise, launched on Facebook just this month, and has seen limited growth with just over 33,000 players. Hopefully King's Bounty: Legion for mobile devices will breathe some life into this project later this year, as it's more than deserving of a spot with the top strategy games on Facebook.
Do you think King's Bounty will find its audience on Facebook? Could the mobile version be where more of those closet King's Bounty fans are hiding? Sound off in the comments. Add Comment.
