Darkness Rises Overview

Make your stand and defend the Kingdom of Losteria from a massive Orc army in Darkness Rises. An evil force has taken command of the Orcs and have sent them pillaging and plundering across the kingdom. The border fortress Iron Guard is all that stands between them and the Kingdom of Losteria. Choose from one of four classes each with their own strengths and weaknesses, from the magic-wielding Wizard to the rampaging Berserker. Engage in epic action combat as you take on orcs, trolls, and other monsters in defense of the kingdom. Chain attacks and skills together to rack up massive combos and finish your enemies off with epic finishing moves. Upgrade your equipment and skills with gold and loot earned from completing dungeons. Follow an immersive storyline in Story Mode or collect loot and gear to grow stronger in Adventure Mode. Team up with your friends or join a guild to take on challenging raid dungeons in search of better and more powerful gear. You are the only one standing in the way of Losteria’s destruction. Will you rise to the occasion?

The dungeon-crawler broke the 10 million download mark in August 2018, just six weeks after its global launch.
