Chrono Wars

Mobile and browser game publisher Narvalous has announced the release of Chrono Wars: Light of Darkness on Facebook. The MMO takes players on a journey through time and space as they complete missions in an effort to mend the fabric of time and save civilization. Gamers choose one of three playable classes: mage, berserker or knight, and take them through quests in six historical eras.

As players complete quests, they’ll meet legendary heroes and characters, including King Arthur, Robin Hood and Jeanne D’Arc, and can destroy monsters and demons in both PvE and PvP battles. During combat, each character employs a variety of different skills, and players can trigger attacks as they see fit to defeat large boss creatures, or groups of monsters in bulk.

Chrono Wars: Light of Darkness offers many features typical to free-to-play MMOs, and the genre in general, including gear and loot collection, a character leveling system, pets, mounts, login rewards, daily bonuses and premium content available via in-app purchase.

In a statement, Jay Tang, president of Narvalous, commented on the game:

With Chrono Wars, Narvalous is proud to bring to our avid gamers IMAX-quality 3D graphics and an unprecedented client gameplay experience via a browser interface or a PC launcher. We worked with the developer, FancyBeans, and the global publisher, Gamewave, in four intensive months to adapt the game for the North American market. So far the Closed Beta testing retention rate has risen four times from a month ago. We believe the game is on track to make a big hit in 2015. We welcome other publishers or platforms to contact us for channeling opportunities.

Chrono Wars: Light of Darkness is available to play for free on Facebook. The game runs on FancyBeans’ Fancy 3D engine, which limits the game to PC players on specific browsers (like Internet Explorer). The game isn’t currently playable on Mac, but this functionality will release soon.

Narvalous is backed by $2.3 million in angel funding, and is behind the xGamePortal, which it hopes will become a “central home” for gamers to find new games, socialize with other players, and play with friends across different devices.
