WBIE, DC Entertainment Launch DC Legends on iOS, Android

The turn-based role-playing game allows users to collect superheroes and villains from the DC Universe.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment announced the launch of DC Legends on mobile. The turn-based role-playing game allows users to collect superheroes and villains from the DC Universe.

In DC Legends, players can travel to multiple locations in the DC Universe including Metropolis, Themyscira and Thanagar as they battle against Nekron and the Manhunters. In each battle, players can tap on enemies to attack them. In addition, each hero has different abilities players can activate during battle. Heroes have different affinities, or types, which make them stronger or weaker against specific kinds of enemies.

As users complete battles, they’ll earn rewards such as experience points, currency, bonus XP items, ability upgrade items and more. The XP items can be used to give heroes extra experience points. As characters level up, their stats will increase, and they will become more powerful. Meanwhile, ability upgrade items allow players to improve their characters’ abilities.

While players begin with only a few characters on their teams, they can recruit additional characters over time by collecting special hero fragments that are specific to each hero. For instance, players need to collect 90 Superman hero fragments to unlock Superman. Users can collect hero fragments as they complete battles, and they can also purchase bundles containing hero fragments in the game’s store.

In addition to a single-player story mode, DC Legends includes a player-vs-player multiplayer arena.

In a statement, Jonathan Knight, vice president and studio head at ‎WB Games San Francisco, commented:

We think DC fans will appreciate the authenticity and depth we’ve brought to DC Legends. The game delivers an experience that’s both exciting and engaging, empowering players to strategically customize their teams and upgrade their super powers as they battle against other players across the world.

DC Legends is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
