Boomzap’s multiplayer strategy game is now available for Android tablets, and a free-for-all tournament launches on all platforms
December 8, 2016, Seattle/Singapore – Just in time for the holidays, the much-awaited Android version of Legends of Callasia is here! The award winning cross-platform strategy game by veteran game studio Boomzap is now available on Google Play for mobile tablets. A free-for-all tournament also launches on the same week, which players on PC, Mac, and iOS can also join for cool prizes such as game codes, XSplit licenses, and more.
Inspired by classic turn-based strategy games like Civilization, Heroes of Might & Magic, and Risk, Legends of Callasia is a world conquest game with an original simultaneous gameplay mechanic where players can plan and resolve their turns all at the same time, adding a strategic element in predicting others’ moves. Easy to pick up and learn, the game has a classic tabletop feel, allowing players to form and lead heroes and armies, build castles and cities, and control territories and kingdoms.
Already a critical success on Steam, Legends of Callasia recently won Excellence in Gameplay and Best Multiplayer Game in the 1st International Mobile Gaming Awards in Southeast Asia for its iOS version.
The full game includes the following features:
Three Factions to choose from: Hundred Kingdoms, Faeborne, and Revenant
Over 25 Heroes with different classes, traits, and bonus cards
30 Single-Player Campaign Levels worth almost 40 hours of gameplay
More than 35 tabletop-style Skirmish/Multiplayer maps playable up to 8 players
Pay once and play on all platforms
An expansion called “The Stoneborne” adding a fourth playable faction, underground maps, and more additional content was also released last October.
The developers behind the game regularly stream and play multiplayer matches with the community on their official Twitch channel. In the tournament, players will fight for ranking points to climb the leaderboard, and the top 16 will play 1v1 matches in a single elimination tournament using standard brackets.
Download Legends of Callasia from Google, App Store, or Steam at $14.99 USD. Pay once in any of these stores and you can get the game on all platforms. A demo version with unlimited multiplayer playtime can be downloaded for free. The expansion is available for purchase at $7.99 USD. More details available at legends.boomzap.com.
