THE HIGHLY popular mobile game Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) gets a new chapter with an official spin-off set to be released later this month.

Moontoon, makers of MLBB, announced last week that Mobile Legends: Adventure (MLA), an idle RPG strategy game, will be released at the end of July and will open a new chapter for adventure in the Land of Dawn for fans of Mobile Legends.

The new RPG game will be told in the perspective of Layla, exploring a more in-depth and cohesive story on the heroes via cut-scenes, comics, dialogues and more.

Officials of Moontoon said there are key differences that separate MLA from MLBB.

“First, players will be able to train up to five heroes at a time. Secondly, MLA requires a different type of strategic thinking as players need to match heroes of different class together to form an all-round lineup and switch up their formations depending on their opponents. Lastly, instead of the more realistic 3D graphics of MLBB, MLA utilizes a 2D art style that brings out the personality and details of the characters in a lively and vibrant manner,” said Moonton Marketing Manager Hanqing Mei.

The Moonton executive added that fans will get to enjoy beloved heroes such as Miya, Tigreal, Layla and Lancelot in a new exciting way with each unique feature, skill, and trait readapted for MLA’s gameplay while keeping their core elements.

The main mechanics of the game include a carefree idle gameplay, where players can still get resources, upgrades and other rewards even when they are offline.

Also there are endless stages that offer campaign scenarios and different play modes. Not only can players summon and train heroes, they are also able to challenge other players in a PvP system, form a guild with other users, and challenge a Guild Boss. — Michael Angelo S. Murillo
