Honor of Kings is one of the most popular mobile games in the world. It also has a funny story: When Tencent couldn’t convince Riot to release a mobile version of League of Legends, their company, TiMi Studio Group, created a one of its kind – Honor of Kings – which was then released in the West as Circuit by Valor.
Courage course flopped (And that doesn’t really matter in the long run, as Riot eventually decided to use LoL-Mobile as well wild crack), but it’s still a perishable beast in China: in November 2020, Tencent announced that the average honor for royalty was Rs. 100 million daily active users In the year to that date and September 2021, it became the highest-grossing mobile game of all time, with more than $10 billion in lifetime gamer spending since 2015 – of which more than $2 billion was in the first eight months of 2021 alone.
Now Tencent is once again trying to bring Honor of Kings closer to audiences around the world, but this time in a slightly different form: like an open-world RPG called Honor of Kings: World. The world in question, according to the publisher, “just feels like exciting encounters, fantastic creatures, and breathtaking landscapes.”
“To unravel ancient secrets hidden in the whispers of the wind, mate with a variety of lovable characters, create your own story along with the living legends of the different schools of thought in Jixia Academy, or immerse yourself in the magnificent landscape of Chang City”, a city where magic and technology meet.. .”
From my point of view, the trailer makes Honor of Kings: World look very similar monster hunter, a game in which players travel to an uninhabited and uninhabited continent in order to team up with others and use extremely massive weapons to kill or capture fantastically colored wild beasts. The new game is being developed in collaboration with the author of The Triangle Body Problem Liu ZixinIt will be a cross-platform, although no platforms have been identified yet.
