'Dungeons & Dragons: Arena of War' Coming to iOS Later This Month, Offering Exclusive Character Upgrade




Hasbro and mobile game developer DeNA/Mobage are bringing popular fantasy role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons to mobile platforms with the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons: Arena of War later this month. The game will be free-to-play and is accepting early registrations at its official website, with an exclusive character upgrade available upon sign-up.

Quote:
Arena of War, the first free-to-play Dungeons & Dragons game on mobile, is a thrilling 3D battle role-playing game that takes place in the famous Forgotten Realms.
Our sister site, TouchArcade, ran a preview of the game a few weeks ago. While the series has remained the best-known and best-selling role-playing game since its original release in 1974, the upcoming iOS title will be the first time the game makes an appearance on mobile platforms.

Went to the site, saw "Powered by Mobage", and now assume that this will be a pay-to-win freemium title.

Except for the brilliant Baldurs Gate.

Or, as it was originally a desktop game, and only available for iPad, not iPhone, does it not count?

Except DnD isn't the most popular or best-selling RPG anymore. PathFinder by Paizo is.

Why did they have to ruin D&D? Now its just a rebranded Magic the Gathering. Even this preview video shows that it has some stupid card based play in the game. No thanks.

Blame it on Hasbro. I knew nothing good would come from it when they bought the franchise.

It hasn't been in a long time since Hasbro bought the franchise. I don't know anyone who plays it anymore other than the older pre-Hasbro editions.
