League of Legends May Come to Mobile

Riot Games and Tencent are reportedly working on a mobile version of MOBA sensation League of Legends.

Despite having some internal issues with their workforce currently, developer/publisher Riot Games is still doing well with their popular free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena game League of Legends over Mac and PC platform.

Apparently, Riot Games is collaborating with parent company Tencent on a mobile version of the game for Android and iOS devices. Although it has been in works for more than a year now, we will not see it launching anytime soon in 2019.

Major portion of League player from Western regions prefer to play MOBA games on PC but then there is Eastern market with huge potential for growth, which is mostly leaning towards playing their games on mobile devices.

Those player bases are major target for Chinese corporate giant Tencent Holdings Ltd to develop a mobile version of LoL to grow their overall player count and adding new source of revenue for the game at the same time.

Tencent has previously worked on a MOBA game titled Honour of Kings for Android, iOS and Nintendo Switch that was re-branded for Western market as Arena of Valor but it failed their expectation of gaining same level of success as LoL.

We can expect that mobile version of League of Legends would probably have gameplay similarities to Arena of Valor. One can only wonder whether or not it would allow PC and mobile accounts to be linked or offer free skins as daily log-in bonuses!

Bethesda Settle Lawsuit Against Westworld Mobile Game

Bethesda settles their lawsuit claim with Fallout Shelter developers over Behaviour Interactive Westworld mobile game publisher Warner Bros.

Back in June 2018, Bethesda Softworks filed a lawsuit against Behaviour Interactive over the allegation that they have made base-building mobile game Westworld a shameless rip-off of their free-to-play simulation game Fallout Shelter.

Apparently, both parties and Warner Bros. Entertainment has agreed to resolve the lawsuit claim over the matter after reaching an amicable settlement recently. The plaintiff has filed a notice in federal court on December 12 following the resolution.

The game based on the popular HBO series debuted lately with almost similar gameplay features in addition with some of the same bugs from an early version of Bethesda's title, causing them to raise eyebrows in suspicion of Behaviour re-using their code.

If the animations and art style of the game was not similar enough to recognize, the glitches made it obvious and for using their copyrighted code, they proceeded with a lawsuit against their former partner until they assured of not using any code from Fallout Shelter.

Westworld rights holder and publisher of the mobile game based on the same sci-fi Western franchise WB was also included in the claim suggesting their involvement in encouraging the developer to re-use the code to speed up the release.

Even though the latest expansion came out on December 4, the solo mode waited a few weeks extra to drop in. The game lets players start as young troll Rikkar and pick a Shrine as his faction for the run to defeat champions from other factions in the arena.

You start with a class, 10 Health and with a weak deck to enter for your first match. For defeating a boss, you gain extra 5 Health each time and can gain up to 45 Health by the time the eighth and final boss arrives. Additionally, participants get new cards for each victory to make their deck stronger.

Currently available demo lets you get into the action with a touchscreen right away and it does well for a fast-paced action game. Except for Witch Doctor, most of the playable classes are available but hardcore fans of the franchise can skip this one out.

The developers also anticipated that players probably are hoping for a sequel game based on the Lord of Terror and subtly left hints that it might take more time to deliver what they want. Despite having the feel of Diablo III, the game needs more polishing to have appeal and acceptance from fans.
