As we mentioned back in May, King’s Bounty: Legions, the Facebook incarnation of the well loved RPG/TBS series, has now begun its invite-only beta test. The game, licensed from 1C and developed by Russian developers KranX Productions, has access to all the assets created by creators Katauri Interactive. But the original developers are not otherwise involved. The “freemium” game can now be accessed by those lucky enough to be invited. Which includes some of our lucky subscribers, who got their hands on 50 codes. Imagine if you were one of them, eh? You can also see a few new screenshots below.
First up, here’s the press release guff that explains what’s on offer:
“King’s Bounty: Legions welcomes social features and competitive player-versus-player combat as new additions to the popular turn-based strategy series, beloved for its tactical combat, amusing storyline and challenging quests. In King’s Bounty: Legions, players travel to different lands, meet interesting NPCs and defeat treacherous armies while growing and customizing their own forces to unleash in the game’s addictive and challenging turn-based strategy system.”
