Arena of Valor Game Overview

Arena of Valor is a free-to-play mobile Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) developed by Timi Studio Group and published by Tencent Games. Previously titled King of Glory, it features intense player-versus-player gameplay similar to the popular MOBA game League of Legends. 

The game adopts the familiar team-based format where players can choose to do battle in 1v1, 3v3 or 5v5 matches. Games take place on a three-lane map where teams must use the terrain to break through their opponent’s defenses and win the match.

The game currently boasts a roster of 40-58 unique characters (depending on the region), each with their own set of skills and attributes with varying play styles. Characters are divided into six classes: Assassin, Mage, Marksman, Support, Tank, and Warrior. Being familiar with each of the character’s strengths and weaknesses is important in performing your role within the team and achieving victory.

Matches in Arena of Valor last for only 15 minutes. This allows players to enjoy quick matches, whether playing casually or in ranked games. There is also a unique PvE adventure mode for players who just want to have fun with the game’s non-competitive content.

Due to its massive popularity, Tencent has partnered with Nintendo to bring Arena of Valor to the Nintendo Switch console. It was announced by Tencent on October 18, 2017 that registration for the game has opened in North America.

Arena of Valor has an active player base of 160 million users worldwide. Since its launch on November 26, 2015, the game has become the highest-grossing free-download game app in the world. In 2016, the game topped the China pan entertainment festival “China IP index value list – game list top 10.”
