Zen Studios Launches Independence Day: Resurgence–Battle Heroes on Mobile

The strategy game is based on upcoming film Independence Day: Resurgence, coming to theaters June 24.

Zen Pinball creator Zen Studios partnered with Fox Digital Entertainment to release Independence Day: Resurgence—Battle Heroes on mobile. The strategy game is based on upcoming film Independence Day: Resurgence, coming to theaters June 24.

In Independence Day: Resurgence—Battle Heroes, players join the Earth Space Defense and will compete against aliens in turn-based battles. Each of the player’s pilots has a different set of skills, and these skills may be more or less effective against certain kinds of opponents.

Players can upgrade their units over time to make them stronger. Specifically, players will collect upgrade materials as they complete battles, and they can equip these materials to different parts of their ships to upgrade their stats. Users can also upgrade their pilots and level up their skills over time. Gamers can replay some battles up to three times per day to earn additional rewards.

In addition, players can collect extra upgrade materials and blueprints by opening supply crates. Blueprints are used to unlock new pilots and ships to command in battles. Gamers can open five basic supply crates and one premium supply crate for free each day. Additional crates can be purchased with free and premium currency.

While players begin with access to the game’s single-player campaign mode, they’ll unlock additional gameplay modes, including player-vs-player battles and cooperative events, as they level up.

Independence Day: Resurgence—Battle Heroes is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store, Google Play and the Amazon Appstore.
