Spanish indie developer Codigames and publisher Kongregate on Wednesday launched Heroes of Rings: Dragons War, a turn-based strategy role-playing game for Android devices. The title tasks players with defending the Pillars of Creation from monsters seeking to end the world, with the gameplay itself being a combination of traditional tactical RPGs and some casual base management. Heroes of Rings: Dragons War presents you with a wide variety of heroes to summon and level up as you continue to face increasingly tougher foes, with every character having their own strengths and weaknesses, as well as unique skills.
Every hero can be customized with Rings, items that themselves are modifiable based on your preferred style of play. The system allows you to tackle missions with a wide variety of improvised character classes, some of which complement one another particularly well. Besides what's described as a lengthy single-player experience, Heroes of Rings: Dragons War also comes packed with multiplayer raids and an Arena mode allowing you to face off against other players and earn resources that will help you progress further into the game, ultimately unlocking the full potential of your warriors, mages, and other heroes. The game features stylized 3D graphics and fantasy characters, most of whom come in the form of anthropomorphic animals.
Heroes of Rings: Dragons War supports augmented reality gameplay on iPhones via Apple's ARKit but it's presently unclear whether the game will eventually bring the same feature to Android with Google's own ARCore. The AR component of the game allows you to get closer to the action and move between characters on the battlefield. The game is free to download and play, being entirely supported through ads and optional in-app purchases, like many other mobile titles on the market. Codigames is also promising long-term support for Heroes of Rings: Dragons War, having already pledged to deliver regular weekly and monthly in-game events. The strategy RPG is compatible with virtually all Android devices on the market, with its only official requirement being Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or a later version of the mobile operating system.
