Kabam Spin-Off Studio Phoenix One Launches Guardian Kingdoms to Challenge Supercell
SAN FRANCISCO–June 13, 2017–PRNewswire/InfoQuest
As Netmarble completes its acquisition of Marvel: Contest of Champions developer Kabam, Kabam spin-off studio Phoenix One launches Guardian Kingdoms – a next generation 3v3 mobile strategy game to challenge Supercell.
Phoenix One Games is led by a veteran group from Kabam, Blizzard, Electronic Arts, and Zynga. The studio has spent the last few years at Kabam quietly developing an ambitious mobile game, Guardian Kingdoms, and has its sights set on Supercell’s unassailable dominance on strategy games. As Kabam began considering its own sale, the team spun off to launch Guardian Kingdoms under their new studio, Phoenix One Games.
Guardian Kingdoms is built upon ground-breaking technology for competitive team battles, allowing for multiplayer experiences never before attempted at such large scale, on mobile devices. This breakthrough on mobile allows for a true strategy game experience reminiscent of Blizzard classics Warcraft or Starcraft, rather than rival Clash of Clans.
Not satisfied with only revolutionizing the combat system for mobile, Guardian Kingdoms also caters to players who enjoy cooperative gameplay alongside a story-driven quests and massive team raid challenges.
All this culminates in a fresh and uniquely bite-sized MMO RTS experience for mobile that is super accessible, yet with the complexity and depth for the most hardcore gamers. One player muses: “Given the saturation of mobile games that emphasize social interaction, Guardian Kingdoms is a rare gemstone that brings back the spirit of this old school gamer…The best thing about it is it’s all real-time, I was able to play with a co-worker while assaulting another person’s base.”
With Guardian Kingdoms, the base-building and strategic team gameplay of RTS games has been carefully crafted into a fresh twist on a classic genre, and makes a clear case for challenging Supercell’s dominance on the charts.
