You may remember the name Heroes Call from E3, when NVIDIA touted it as one of the major upcoming games that would sport customizations to take full advantage of their Tegra chip. The Tegra HD (THD) version of the game was released last night at the low, low price of free. Thankfully, this might just be one of those rare cases in which "free" gets you quite a lot.

Free to play Action RPG. Answer the call!

Fight your way through more than 30 lush dungeons, collect gear, learn new skills and uncover the secrets of Brineside.

Featuring incredible graphics and deep RPG levelling and gear, Heroes Call brings dungeon crawling action and adventure to the mobile and tablet as it's never been seen before.

Brineside is a city under siege, beset with dangers from outside, within and below. The Adventurers Guild is in dire need of new Heroes. Are you ready to answer the call?.

      So glad I have a Galaxy Nexus right now. Oh wait that doesn't have a Tegra in it, but it is still able to play it. Chain fire to the rescue!

  • MooseCat

    I'll have to remember to grab this when I get the Nexus 7 :D

  • ril3

    this is what i've been looking for!

  • Himmat Singh

    What a bummer....first thing after starting the game I realized the in-app purchases, highest of which is US$50! Anyways will just carry on and see how playable is the game w/o additional purchases.

      so, if i get it right, it's not free, but freemium? is it enjoyable without purchases? 

      • Himmat Singh

        Yeah exactly. You can still play, but at every step of the way, you'll see that you're being left shorthanded until or unless your make an in-app purchase. I tell you the game is well-made but the IAP ruins it all. Give it a try.

        • http://jesuiscontentducontent.tumblr.com/ Yod-b

          well, honestly, i really don't like this freemium system. if i like an app, i gladly purchase it, even for a higher price. but this way, i don't even start to play.

  • Catbones

     This looks pretty rad... installing now! Thanks for the tip!
    Toshiba Thrive w/Tegra!
