It’s out! After teasing us with a trailer showing a cleavage-beholden lady of the night (No, not that kind of lady of the night) Spacetime Studios have released their new vampire based MMO, Dark legends.
The game focuses around you, a newly sired vampire fighting to survive in the brutal human world. Unlike the teen-vampire films made popular in recent years, the humans don’t want to romance the vampires, in fact most humans would rather just shove a rather pointed stick through them.
Dark Legends has been launched on both desktop and mobile by way of the Chrome web store and Google play. Android users have exclusive access to the mobile platform for a couple of weeks, so if you’re an iPad or iPod user, hang on you’ll get to play soon.
Dark Legends is the third ‘Legends’ title released by Spacetime Studios, after Pocket Legends and Star Legends, both of which hold the title of being the largest mobile MMO’s boasting more than seven million downloads, which is roughly the same population as Honduras.
So, if you want to give it a try head on over to their website darklegends.com and do so. Well go on, don’t let me stop you. I’ll be right behind you, oh and look out for a review in the next few days.
If you want to read the official press release from Spacetime Studios, then have at it you crazy kids.
Spacetime Studios Teams Up with Google on World’s First MMO to Launch Simultaneously on Mobile and Desktop
Dark Legends Now Available Exclusively On Google Play and Chrome Web Store
Spacetime Studios, working closely with Google, is introducing the world’s first MMO to launch simultaneously on mobile and desktop platforms. The mobile MMO Dark Legends is now available exclusively for a two week period on Google Play for Android devices and on the Chrome Web Store for PC, Mac and Linux.
The commercial launch of Dark Legends across both mobile and desktop simultaneously is another industry first by Spacetime Studios and furthers their goal to create a ubiquitous social gaming experience.
The company’s Legends series are the only 3D MMOs in the world that allow people to play the same game together on desktop computers, smart phones and tablets. Gary Gattis, CEO of Spacetime Studios, feels recent moves by Google to unify the gaming and social experience across its platform ecosystem are a powerful validation of his own company’s long standing corporate mission to allow people to play with anyone, anywhere, anytime.
“Google Play and the Chrome Web Store allow us to upload and update our online, multiplayer games instantly. Their immediate and unified environment fits perfectly with Spacetime’s ability to push global content to our suite of games on-the-fly across mobile and desktop.” said Gattis. “We’re both at the forefront of creating cross-platform gameplay that connects players in a much deeper online experience, anywhere and on any device.”
Set in a gritty modern-day urban environment in which humans are aware of vampires’ existence, players assume the role of a recently sired vampire who must battle to survive in a world which fears and hates their kind. In the struggle, players must face gangs of well-armed humans, hordes of the undead, packs of werewolves, covens of warlocks and legions of demons.
Dark Legends is the third title in the highly popular Legends franchise of mobile and desktop games. The first two titles, Pocket Legends and Star Legends: The Blackstar Chronicles, are the world’s largest mobile MMOs with more than seven million downloads.
Dark Legends is free to download and play. The game features optional microtransactions and virtual currency that enhance the play experience with vanity items, health packs and premium revives.
After the exclusive period the game will also be available for iOS devices.
