You know Perfect World Entertainment
as the publisher of such MMORPGs as Neverwinter
, Star Trek Online
, and Champions Online
. All client-based games on the PC, these free-to-play titles fetter players to their gaming rigs. Today, the company announces it's breaking free from those PC bonds and expanding into mobile gaming as both developer and publisher for new titles. The new games will focus on the core genres of action RPG, strategy, TCG, MMORPG, and MOBA games.
While looking forward to partnering with more talented development studios around the world, PWE already has a portfolio of mobile games lined up: the trading card game Elemental Kingdom
s from China-based iFree Studio; the RPG adventure game The Null Society
from San Francisco-based Agent Disco; the turn-based multiplayer game BombBuds
from Seattle-based Fugazo; and the MOBA Arena of Heroes
from Austin-based Sneaky Games.
For a deeper look at this new direction for the publisher, be on the lookout for our exclusive interview with PWE this Friday in MMObility
