Collect, Fight and Rule in War of the Fallen, Zynga's Newest Card Battler Game
Zynga's Latest Mobile Game for iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch Challenges Players to
Dominate Enemies, Bosses and Each Other
SAN FRANCISCO, April 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zynga (Nasdaq:ZNGA), the
world's leading provider of social games services, today announced the global
launch of War of the Fallen, a brand new card battler game that delivers a new
level of quality, depth, and accessibility to the popular genre. Now available
on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, and coming soon to Android
on Google Play, War of the Fallen follows the success of Zynga's Ayakashi:
Ghost Guild, a popular card battler game launched in late 2012.
Designed with a global audience in mind, War of the Fallen stands apart with
rich storytelling. The game starts after a comet, once a prison of ancient
evil, crashes into the northern regions of Tyreon, scattering shardstones
throughout the land. As a dark power grows, players undertake the role of a
Shardbreaker to free ancient gods trapped in shardstones and command the
creatures found within against demonic forces. Venturing through War of the
Fallen's unique map-based progression system, players encounter a rich cast of
characters and each decision they make shapes the storyline in surprising
To progress, players build and customize card decks, relying on strategy to
compete in player vs. player and player vs. environment combat, earning
treasures and new cards along the way. Players can customize their gameplay by
utilizing three character factions and more than 150 cards with 100+ unique
skills. Strengthening and evolving the cards, while combining the card skills
within a player's deck, provides countless game play options. Deck-building
choices even have a big impact on the single-player aspect of the game, a
rarity among card battlers. War of the Fallen was designed with a streamlined
user interface, in-game tutorials, hints and intuitive progression to enhance
the game's accessibility.
"It's rare to find a card battler game that blends both accessibility and
depth, and that's what we've tried to deliver with War of the Fallen," said
Scott Koenigsberg, General Manager of War of the Fallen. "We hope players –
both seasoned card battler veterans and those that are new to the genre – love
the level of polish, customization and new social innovations we've included."
War of the Fallen introduces a social mechanic called Guild Force, never
before seen in the genre. By uniting with other players and friends, Guild
Force boosts players' individual and team abilities, improving overall
strength of their cards and chances of success in battle.
