You may have heard of or played Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, a character-collecting adventure set in a galaxy far, far away. Mobile games launched in 2015 and, in the years that followed, amassed a substantial fan base that continues to receive support from substantial roster updates. The creators behind Galaxy of Heroes recently founded Azra Games. And the studio’s debut title will be a fighting and collecting RPG called Legions & Legends.
Azra Games CEO and co-founder Mark Otero excitedly spoke about the announcement of the new game:
“This will be my ninth collectible and fighting RPG, one that builds on and perfects the genre I’ve spent my career developing. I truly believe we’ve cracked the code for an immersive gameplay experience built on the joy of collecting toys and having them fight each other, just like we used to do as kids. At Azra, we’re looking to bring that excitement back with toy boxes and play with friends – re-engineered for a new generation of players. “
Azra Games is a blockchain game company. Legions & Legends launches this summer (exact date not specified) with the release of NFT “Genesis Collection” that generates in-game resources via Ethereum. But what exactly? To be Legions & Legends? A press release/blog post written by Otero gives us a brief look at the “unexplored galaxy, where magic and technology collide” with each other.
Civilizations like never before are at war, and players will take the lead in a bloody conflict to claim the galaxy. Three types of characters can be deployed on the battlefield – Legionnaires, best used in large numbers, Commanders, known for their special attacks/buffs, and Behemoths, slow and tanky creatures with destructive power. The aforementioned NFT collection introduces Genesis Explorers, where players can submit Exploration Quests for craftable parts.
As Otero put it, “Your journey into the depths of the Corvus Galaxy awaits.”
