Clash Royale gets an Android soft launch and some of you can play it now
Supercell is popular for all-time favorite mobile games like Clash of Clans and Boom Beach. The former has been downloaded 100 to 500 million times on the Google Play Store, so saying they have a good follower base is an understatement.
A new title from this developer has been in the works for some time and the launch is expected to come in March. But some of you won’t have to wait that long. Supercell has just treated a few countries with a soft launch of Clash Royale. Included markets are Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Finland and New Zealand.
Clash Royale is a bit different from what we are used to, though. This online multi-player game features live matches. After accepting a match, you can actively battle. Each player will have two towers and a castle to defend. The goal is to protect your buildings by deploying troops, while trying to also get your army to destroy enemy structures. By the way, destroying the castle makes you an automatic winner.
The game mechanics are a bit more complex than that, though. Users can also customize their decks and effectively choose their fighting styles. Pretty fun and simple once you get the hang of it, or at least it seems that way. Only those of you who can already play it can tell us how the game really is.
You can now grab the app from the Google Play Store if you are in one of the markets mentioned above. The rest of us will probably have to wait until March. Also, keep in mind that gem prices will be a bit irregular until the game is released in other markets. Everything will stabilize in due time.
