Fresh off of the release of the zombie action RPG Dead Rivals and a day before its scheduled May 3rd release date, the newest game in the long running Dungeon Hunter series is now available on Google Play. A departure from the series’ dungeon crawling roots, Dungeon Hunter Champions looks and plays more like a MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) than its predecessors. Given that Champions looks to offer both a MOBA mode and a single player dungeon crawling adventure, that should come as no surprise.
Dungeon Hunter Champions is, in a lot of ways, two games in one. On one hand it has a fairly traditional 5 vs 5 MOBA mode where players take their collected heroes into battle on a 3 lane map. These battles limit a lot of the benefits that players with more powerful characters may gain, trim down the number of available heroes, and cut out features like elemental advantages in the hope of providing a more fair and balanced PVP experience.
On the other hand, Champions is also a mobile action RPG with hero collection. Players build teams from their collected heroes and take them into battle in the game’s adventure mode. These battles have a variety of objectives, ranging from defending a certain point to wiping out the opponent, or even competing with an AI hero to see who accumulate the most monster kills.
Beyond just dungeon crawling and a MOBA mode, Champions lets players power up their heroes with a variety of gear sets, take on AI controlled teams in the game’s other PVP mode, go up against huge bosses, and more.
Dungeon Hunter Champions is free and contains in app purchases. Here is an excerpt from the game’s description and a trailer with more information:
