The trailer shows a character transforming into a dragon, which could be a key gameplay mechanic, as the story is set in a world where humans and dragons co-exist, and you can make a pact with a dragon in exchange for their power.
Dragalia Lost is slated to be released this summer, first in Asia then in North America and Europe.
HBO’s Westworld was a captivating TV series, and soon the cyber- and cow- punk setting will be moseying on down to mobile, too. The Westworld game for iOS and Android is scheduled to launch this April and puts you into the role of a new employee at Westworld learning the ropes on a simulation.
Westworld rather gritty and mature aesthetic is toned down for the mobile game, which features colorful 2D characters. But that doesn’t mean it won’t engage with the more serious themes of the TV series. As a Westworld employee, you can create new, disposable life in the form of hosts, and learn how to make keep the guests (both cruel and benign) happy.
The Westworld mobile game is intended to be free-to-play with IAP, but we’ll see if Warner Bros manage to strike a good balance. In the meantime, you can pre-register for the game here.
Fornite Battle Royale
Epic Games zombie-apocalypse building/survival game introduced a free-to-play battle royale mode that quickly stole the spotlight away from the main game. Cynics will point out this move came hot on the heels of PUBG’s success, but Fornite’s take on the genre is undeniably fun, with a vibe of its own.
It’s specifically this battle royale mode that’s going to come to Android and iOS, ready to compete with PUBG in the mobile arena. Even better, Fortnite on mobile will support cross-platform play, so you’ll be playing the same game, same graphics, as those using PC and PS4, and be able to keep your game progression between devices.
This is exciting news to gamers frustrated by the scaled-down or piecemeal adaptions that we’re used to seeing when a big name title comes to mobile. Epic has stated “Fortnite is the same 100-player game you know from PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac. Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates.”
