Kingdom Rush: Vengeance is coming November 22 (Update: Available now)
Updated November 22, 2018 (2:10PM EST): The time has come for Vez’nan to get his revenge, as today Kingdom Rush: Vengeance is officially available on the Google Play Store. As mentioned below, this time you team up with orcs and goblins to take down the good guys.
Like all Kingdom Rush titles after the first, Kingdom Rush: Vengeance is a paid title, costing 5 bucks. On top of that, it has in-app-purchases for gems, towers, and heroes costing up to $99. They don’t affect normal gameplay, but they might be a sticking point for some users.
That said, long-time fans of the Kingdom Rush series or tower defense games will definitely want to pick this one up. Click on the link below to download and install it now.
Updated October 25, 2018 (4:17PM EST): You can now pre-register for Kingdom Rush: Vengeance, the fourth installment in the popular tower defense series. Pre-registering for the game will enable a notification on your Android device when the game is available to download.
As described in the original article below, Vengeance will let you play as the series’ antagonist Vez’nan, which should be a fun twist for regular players.
Original Article, July 17, 2018 (4:01PM EST): Game studio Ironhide published a blog post and video teaser today giving fans their first look at the upcoming fourth installment in the Kingdom Rush series – Kingdom Rush: Vengeance.
The series of fantasy tower defense games – including the original Kingdom Rush, Kingdom Rush: Frontiers, and Kingdom Rush: Origins – are some of the highest-rated titles in the Google Play Store. A new installment in the series hasn’t launched since Kingdom Rush: Origins landed in 2014.
Needless to say, fans are likely foaming at the mouth to get a new game. Check out the teaser trailer for the upcoming Kingdom Rush: Vengeance:
The trailer doesn’t give us much hard info about the game, but it does back up the rumor that the new installment will focus on series antagonist Vez’nan. In the Ironhide blog post today, the game studio says that “you’ll need to lead the troops and assist the almighty Vez’nan” while he conquers his foes.
The idea of making a game where you play as the enemy rather than the hero is not a new concept – games as old as 1993’s Jurassic Park (where you are a raptor) or 1998’s Super Mario Land 3 (where you are Wario) are just two examples. But any time you get to turn a franchise on its head to play the villain instead of the hero is always fun.
Ironhide doesn’t give any information about when we can expect to actually play Kingdom Rush: Vengeance. However, you can enter your email here to get notified of all the upcoming news about the game, and possibly even get some beta play.
