There’s a new trend in reveal-to-launch-time ratio, and we can’t say that’s a bad thing: Having less wait between learning of a game and getting to play it is a welcome shift. Nexon joined that bandwagon with its new mobile MMO AxE: Alliance vs Empire, which was just introduced to the western market last week and launches today.
AxE pits the individualistic Alliance’s Titans, Archers, and Blademasters against the order-driven Empire’s Warriors, Valyries, and Mages in skirmishes across multiple world maps that culminate in 75v75 battles. Did we mention that a giant golden dragon is also participating in said battle? And all this can be played in the palm of your hand on your phone or (with really big palms) your tablet. Nexon M General Manager Tommy Lee stated,
“Nexon RED has tapped the power of modern mobile devices to provide a PC and console-quality MMO experience in AxE featuring a breadth of single-player, cooperative and competitive gameplay modes with an incredible amount of depth. We’re excited to bring AxE to a global audience of MMO gamers today and look forward to an exciting journey in this unique fantasy world for years to come.”
