After a lengthy soft launch phase, Ubisoft’s new hero collection RPG is now available worldwide. Might & Magic: Elemental Guardians is a Summoners War like gacha game featuring hundreds of allies. Though as with any game that promises hundreds of collectible heroes, expect that number to see some palette swaps and a lot of characters that no one will ever use in combat.
For the most part Ubisoft’s latest release is a standard gacha game in the mold of Summoners War. Players try their luck at summoning powerful creatures, power up the ones they do have, build their team, and then go into battle. The game features a PVP arena, PVE campaign, daily quests, and massive bosses to take on, all of which are what one expects from a modern gacha game. Elemental Guardians has a turn based combat system that injects a bit of strategy into the game, and an auto mode for those who want to reduce the amount of attention they need to pay to the game while grinding.
Elemental Guardians has been available in Australia, Canada, Philippines, and Singapore for over a year prior to today’s global launch. Extended soft launches are now common for Ubisoft, and the company currently has a number of games that are being worked on while only available in certain regions. That includes Assassin’s Creed Rebellion and Hungry Shark follow-up Hungry Dragon. While some companies use soft launches as a way of finding any lingering bugs or to allow the game to gradually build an audience without flooding the servers on day one, Ubisoft’s soft launch games often see major changes and additions prior to their global launch.
Might & Magic: Elemental Guardians is free and contains in app purchases. Here is a trailer with a look at the game:
