The new title, developed by Gameloft, features more than 250 champions and MOBA-like five-vs-five player battles. The company knows a thing or two about developing successful mobile titles, having made the Asphalt and Modern Combat series, so you can expect a similar level of polish from DHC.
After soft-launching in the Philippines in August 2017, Dungeon Hunter Champions is now available in the Canadian and Vietnamese Google Play Store.
The latest entry in Gameloft’s action RPG series, Dungeon Hunter Champions offers a single-player campaign where players hack and slash through different worlds and environments. The game also features a five-on-five multiplayer mode reminiscent of Dota 2, League of Legends, and other multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) titles.
You can choose from over 250 collectible Champions to form your team, which introduces some strategy to the gameplay. Champions are divided into several character types, like Fighter and Tank. Picking the types of Champions for your team is just as important as the Champions themselves, especially since you can level up and outfit each Champion with various weapons and equipment.
As you win more battles, you can climb the leaderboards and earn random items. You can also buy items with real-world money, which is where Dungeon Hunter Champions makes its money. Based on the trailer above, the game features at least two different currencies, as well as an energy-based system. This saddens me, since energy systems limit how much you can play in one sitting.
All we can hope is the game will dole out as much of the in-game currency and items as possible without shoving the paid portions in your face.
Dungeon Hunter Champions is available in the Philippines, Canada, and Vietnam. Folks in other regions can pre-register at the link below to receive items and a chance to win 15 Champions.
