After being available as an early access beta in Canada and Australia starting last week, Spacetime Studios’ latest MMORPG is now up for grabs for all in Google Play. Arcane Legends follows on the footsteps of the very popular Pocket Legends, Star Legends and Dark Legends, being available as a “free to play forever” game.
We’re guessing that means not only you’ll be able to download the game for free, but you’ll also not be bugged by pesky in-app purchases, which sounds pretty awesome.
Awesome is also how Spacetime Studios has chosen to blend old features from past titles with entirely new functions. The result? A familiar enough product to attract experienced Legends players, but at the same time an innovative and fresh new game to keep the franchise going.
As all MMORPGs (massively multiplayer online role-playing games), Arcane Legends has a virtual game world where players can interact and battle in Co-Op or PVP modes. There’s also a Solo Mode for those of you that don’t like company, although even in that you’ll need help from… mystical pets.
You heard it right, pets are the main innovative point of this new game, which you will find, collect, grow and customize to help you in your magic travels seeking the destroying of evil. The customization of skills and class abilities is another new touch that you’ll definitely find useful, as is the new grouping system, allowing you to undergo battles next to real-life friends.
Intrigued? Then why not head over to Google Play and give this a go? After all, it won’t cost you a thing.
After a soft launch in Canada and Australia, Spacetime Studios' free Arcane Legends online game is now available to download in the U.S. I played around with it a fair bit, and it's got some great real-time hack-and-slash action, classic RPG progression, and all of the online multiplayer stuff you'd expect, like cooperating on quests, building guilds, and so on.
If you do end up giving it a shot, we've got a little present for the warriors in the house: Lloyd's Might Arm of Will. It's got a frost particle effect, because we're super-cool. Or something. Look, just go to the STS Nexus button at the top menu bar of the starting home screen after you've made your character and gone through the tutorial, hit the Enter Promo Code button under the Offers tab, and punch in androidcentral111312. Blammo, instead swordage.
Just be warned that the servers are getting hammered pretty hard, since it's launch day for these guys. Any fantasy MMO fans out there? Anyone put time into Gameloft's Order & Chaos? How does it compare?
Arcane Legends recently enjoyed a soft launch in Canada and Australia, bringing a fresh, colorful fantasy MMORPG to Android. The developer, Spacetime Studios, has a lot of experience in freemium mobile massively multiplayer online games, having kicked off the trend with Pocket Legends way back when, and since released other themed games such as Star Legends and Dark Legends. I’ve dabbled in those previously, but let me say right off the bat that Arcane Legends blows the others out of the water.
Spacetime Studios is set to release another chapter in its "Legends" series of MMO (Massive Multiplayer Online) games, this time called Arcane Legends. As a teaser for the upcoming game, the studio has released a full cinematic trailer.
The 30 second spot shows the highlights of the new game, including three new classes -- warrior, rogue and mage -- as well as the use of loyal battle pets. As is the case with these types of games, players will be able to level up and hone their skills over time, customizing their characters and abilities.
First there was Pocket Legends, then came Star Legends. Today sees the latest MMORPG effort from Spacetime Studios, Dark Legends, released into the Google Play Store. It also stakes the claim to be the first game of its kind to launch simultaneously mobile and desktop versions. It is also available in the Google Chrome store, on Mac, PC and Linux.
The Legends series has become a huge smash hit worldwide, with over 7 million downloads of the first two games. If you've played either Pocket or Star Legends -- and there's a good chance you have -- then you'll feel right at home. New players can sign in with email, or via Facebook, and existing Spacetime account holders can just sign right in and play.
First impressions are good, with the familiar gameplay taken in a new direction with the undead twist. It'll run you for a grand total of free in the Google Play Store, and you'll find download links along with the full presser after the break.
If you love the Underworld film series, and if you happen to have a crush on Selene, the rebellious yet righteous vampire portrayed by the English actress Kate Beckinsale, then it wouldn’t be surprising either for you to love this game we are about to introduce. Enter Dark Legends, a thrilling MMORPG developed by Spacetime Studios, the gaming company that brought Pocket Legends and Star Legends to life. According to the developers, Dark Legends is a completely different game that will surely feed the bloodlust of its players.
Spacetime Studios was kind enough to send us a copy of the game’s first teaser trailer. Although the trailer is a bit short, leaving some of us hanging, it was just enough to trigger the curiosity in our brain and the vampire fantasies we’ve been hiding. Of course, we wouldn’t dare to question the game’s quality as Spacetime Studios has already proven to the world that they can create freaking awesome stuff. So what can we expect from this frightening game?
Essentially, players will portray the role of a vampire who is duly trained and tutored by a mentor. Eventually, apparently due to an uprising led by the human race with the plan to exterminate the then-secret vampire society, players will have to face all odds as it battles against werewolves, hordes of demons and the undead alongside misguided humans in a quest to save the vampire clan from utter extinction.
It’s a very interesting game that is destined to become a classic. Dark Legends is an action-packed game you surely wouldn’t want to miss. It’s expected to arrive this coming March for Android, Chrome and iOS. Check out the first teaser trailer after the jump. Enjoy!
Spacetime Studios, creators of Pocket Legends and Star Legends, are returning to Android with their latest creation; Dark Legends. Release for this taste of the undead is currently slated for Q1 2012.
The gameplay of Dark Legends is said to draw the player deeper into the experience. Boasting a combat system that features new mechanics such as charge attacks and the ability to drain enemies.
The game will also be more focused on the narrative aspect, and will offer the ability to complete quick action missions with a single tap. Such missions feature cut-scenes that become linked together to create a storybook where the player experiences the life of a vampire up close and personal.
The game is said to open with your character recently 'raised' and being watched over by the vampire that created them. The existance of vampires has been exposed and the humans are uniting to exterminate them all. You must work with your clan to survive.
The previous games from Spacetime have been downloaded over 7 million times and offer players such a high level of gaming quality. There's no reason to suspect Dark Legends will be any different. It is due to be shown off for the first time at GDC 2012.

It's been a crazy ride for Star Legends: The Blackstar Chronicles. The second in the "Legends" series of mobile MMOs, Star Legends started out in closed beta, then eventually was made available to the masses and now is the top dog among mobile MMOs.
It feels like forever since I last mentioned it, but I had to take make the time to really dig into this excellent game when it was announced it was finally downloadable in the Chrome Store. A fully fleshed out MMO on my phone and my browser? For free? Those charms are too strong for even yours truly to resist.
