The most action-packed MMORPG on mobile ever is out right now on iOS and Android.
Sword of Chaos has you create your very own character from a variety of different classes and then working your way through a challenging dungeon which includes twenty different levels.
Along the way you'll encounter tons of foes like werewolves, goatmen, and centaurs, and you'll have to unleash a few different combos to defeat them.
Defeating enemies is the fastest way to level up your character, at which point you'll unlock new skills, outfits, and boost your skills. Eventually, you'll be powerful enough to take on more difficult content like the team dungeons and PvP.
So, you’ve just downloaded Order & Chaos 2: Redemption and you don’t know what to do next. That’s fair - the game is huge after all. To help you out, we’ve conjured up some helpful tips and tricks to ease your transition into the massive world.

Final Fantasy fans are you ready? Nexon has been chosen to develop a mobile game based off of the MMORPG Final Fantasy XI!

Nexon has not revealed much about the upcoming title, but they certainly seem happy about it.

Spacetime Studios has announced a new expansion - the fifth - for Arcane Legends, called "The Dragon Enclave."
This one takes the player into Lord Rendtail's lair. It sports new player caps, new bosses, and new pets to explore with. There is also new currency, dungeons, armor, and daily quests to keep players engaged.
Legends Producer Alex von Minden likes the continued product. “The Spacetime Development Team had a lot of fun creating the Dragon Enclave and it shows. The art, action and story come together for solid MMORPG experience, all delivered neatly to your mobile device. I’m especially proud of our final boss, the fearsome Lord Rendtail. It is a great boss fight with a unique spin that makes it unlike any other encounter we’ve done before.”
The Dragon Enclave expansion has been submitted to the App Store and should be going live very soon. In the meantime, you can download Arcane Legends for free.
Heroes of Dragon Age sees EA taking the deep backstory of the Dragon Age series that BioWare helped to create and allowing players to create armies of characters throughout the series' history, taking part in famous battles throughout the mythology. It's a free-to-play game currently in testing in Canada, and we're featuring impressions and a video of it in this latest edition of It Came From Canada!
All the combat is automatic, with players having no real say in what happens: just sit back and watch as everyone takes turns fighting. Players set up their lineup of fighters and then hope that they are advantageous in battle. Although there are strategy elements: using an army of the same type of character will give everyone a boost, and upgrading a character by consuming other ones can help turn even a poor fighter into someone who might help win some battles.
Yes, consuming other characters. Getting new characters is done through a card system, and consuming unused characters (really just a card system without much of the card metaphor) can upgrade a character's stats. It's kind of disturbing when it's characters consuming other characters.
There's an asynchronous battle element, too. Players can take on other players, or at least their current army, to get rewards. Of course there's the lengthy campaign to take on as well, which takes players through various challenges with the ability to repeat them to get additional rewards, including premium currency. There's energy systems for both multiplayer challenges and the singleplayer campaign.
Interestingly, for those who haven't had much experience with the franchise the game's language and characters are virtually indistinguishable from a brand new intellectual property, so don't think that there's a need to be previously exposed to the franchise to enjoy this one. The type of automatic combat is seemingly meant for a more casual, laid-back experience: it's something seen in other mobile MMORPG type games as well.
Heroes of Dragon Age does have a high learning curve early on, though - there's a lengthy tutorial section, which I explore in the video below. If all goes well this should be available internationally very soon, but soft launches are an art, not a science!
