We’ve covered A3 Still Alive a couple of times in the last year, but today, Netmarble has officially confirmed that the game is definitely happening, definitely happening on mobile, and definitely coming to our neck of the woods. As we’ve previously noted, the game is based on the Korean MMO called A3, but this game is more of a hybrid between MMOs and battle royales, with an emphasis on PvP.
“Based on Netmarble’s original A3 online PC game from South Korea, A3: Still Alive is a cross-genre mobile experience that pairs the enormous and living worlds of Open-World RPGs with the extreme combat of Battle Royale. Set in an apocalyptic fantasy world of swords and sorcery, players must be vigilant in an always-open Player vs. Player (PvP) environment as they fight against enemies with intense hack & slash combat in the search for powerful gear. Players can prove their mettle with a variety of PvP and Player vs. Everyone (PvE) engagements including Castle Siege, Dark Presence and World Boss Content. To complement the extreme combat, A3: Still Alive is beautifully rendered with splendid console-quality 3D graphics that are brought to life thanks to the outstanding optimization of the Unity Engine.”
Netmarble has released the game for preregistration on Android and iOS as of today, kicking off a reward event that could net some nice prizes for folks who sign up early. An official launch date is not on offer.
