The Warhammer series has seen many mobile releases, and almost all of them are horrible cash-grabs. Apparently, Games Workshop will license the property out to anyone, but for once, I have a Warhammer announcement that's actually good news. You see, Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus is a well-reviewed strategy game from PC and consoles that's coming to mobile soon. To be more specific, this is a turned-based strategy game that plays similarly to the X-Com series, and it's coming to Android and iOS tablets on April 22nd.
The build-up to the US open beta for League of Legends: Wild Rift has been a long one, but now that this beta is almost here, I've taken it for a spin ahead of time to report on my findings. Below I've detailed all of the critical bits, things like performance, controls, and monetization, and I've even taken the time to record a 48-minute gameplay video so that everybody can see exactly what this open beta will have to offer when it's released on Monday. So if you're eager to learn all about the upcoming US beta for Wild Rift, this hands-on is for you.
Feral Interactive has announced that it will bring the World War II real-time strategy game Company of Heroes to Android this year. The game was recently ported by Feral to the iPad, and so it makes sense that this mobile port will be tweaked to support phones, and luckily Android phones are part of this equation. So while we don't yet know when to expect the arrival of Company of Heroes on Android, at the very least, we now know the strategy game is coming sometime this year.
Adult Swim has a followup to its three-year-old gacha game Pocket Mortys, but it's currently in testing, so it's only available in select regions on the Play Store despite just popping up. This game is titled Rick and Morty: Clone Rumble, and much like Pocket Mortys, you'll once again be tasked with collecting characters, but this time around, you'll get to collect a bunch of different personalities from the show (such as Mr. Poopybutthole), instead of cloned Mortys.
Crying Suns is an indie sci-fi roguelite often compared to FTL: Faster Than Light, but that's only half the picture since the game also offers a deep story-rich experience. Well, it would appear that Humble Bundle has just brought the game to Android, and you can pick it up today for $8.99. Clearly, Humble Bundle is expanding its publishing arm, and so Crying Suns is the first game from the publisher to appear on the Google Play Store.
HandyGames has announced today that its tactical spinoff title Rebel Cops is coming to Android sometime in the future. This is the same developer behind the games This Is the Police and its sequel, and while Rebel Cops has been available on Steam since September, it's nice to know a mobile version is in the works. Potential players should expect 15-hours of playtime in this turn-based strategy game, and of course, the gameplay and UI have been optimized for mobile play.
Nippon Ichi Software has released its classic strategy RPG Disgaea 1 on the Google Play Store, seemingly out of nowhere. This new release goes by the name Disgaea 1 Complete, which means the title is indeed a remaster of the original Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. Better yet, Disgaea 1 Complete is a premium release, which means there are no in-app purchases or advertisements included. Of course, since this is a premium remaster of a classic SRPG that contains hundreds of hours of gameplay, a premium price is also attached.
Early this morning, Might & Magic: Chess Royale popped up on the Google Play Store for pre-registration, and upon closer inspection, it would appear that this is a title designed to offer large 100-player clashes in the latest take on the auto battle genre, also known as auto chess. Clearly, Ubisoft is keen to get in on the growing auto chess trend, and so has slapped a Might & Magic skin on top of its upcoming auto battler to squeeze out as much nostalgia from the brand as possible.
