Mobile MMORPG World of Kings Launches

Loong Entertainment's mobile MMORPG World of Kings officially launched today in English globally for both iOS and Android. The game offers 4 playable races (Human, High Elf, Orc and Dwarf) and 9 classes (Warrior, Mage, and Priest, and then evolve into one of three advanced classes, like a Vampire, Battle Mage, or Spellblade). Each class also has 3 job advancements (called awakenings) for a total of 27 playable classes.

While many might be quick to write this one off as just another Chinese auto play mobile MMORPG, it's worth pointing out that this one is surprisingly high quality. Loong Entertainment even hired Russell Brower to be the game's composer, who's best known for doing some of the music for World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, and Diablo 3.

I've personally played this one for a few hours already and while it's far from perfect, it's quite impressive. The game looks beautiful and runs incredibly smoothly. It unfortunately does have auto-play elements, but the auto-play won't be sufficient to clear the more difficult dungeons.

The developers behind World of Kings invited (sponsored) Limit, a high end World of Warcraft raiding guild, to challenge one of the game's more difficult dungeons. If you're curious what that looks like - check out the video below:
