The original King’s Bounty is a turn-based fantasy game that was released on desktops and consoles in the early nineties, and is widely accepted as the precursor to the Heroes of Might and Magic series. In 2008, a modern remake of the game called King’s Bounty: The Legend hit Mac and PC to critical acclaim, mostly due to the game’s fantastic combat system.

Last year, a social spinoff of King's Bounty: The Legend hit Facebook and various Flash sites called King’s Bounty: Legions, which focused heavily on the combat mechanics and online multiplayer using the familiarity of the King’s Bounty universe. Now, as has been hinted since the original Facebook release, King’s Bounty: Legions is finally heading to iOS.

There aren’t currently any more details on the iOS release of King’s Bounty: Legions, but it shouldn’t be too long before we get to find out for ourselves as the launch window has been pegged as July. Hey, that’s this month! I haven’t played any of the King’s Bounty games new or old, but this version certainly looks promising. We’ll have more on King’s Bounty: Legions just as soon as it hits the App Store.

    I've played King's Bounty the Legend, and it was extremely fun and addictive. If this game is anything like that, it should be very successful.

    OH MY WORD...is someone reading my mind, seriously! I was just thinking that this would be awesome on ios.

    • dcalbie

      Yikes, just noticed its a social version of Kings Bounty not a port/spin-off of the actual game, anyone know the difference? Do you just fight Facebook frenemies? If so then this would merit a hmmm, more then a YEAH!

  • SLAMBURGER

    Seems to just be some PvP thing, not the full PC game experience. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    • dcalbie

      Quick, someone correct Slamburger and tell him he's wrong...please?

      It has a story, daily quests and all that mmorpg stuff in FB version

      • SLAMBURGER

        Hmm that could be interesting. Still the full PC game running on an iPad would be soooooooo good.

      I played a tiny bit of it on Facebook when I saw the announcement. It seems like it's pretty much the full game when it comes to combat, but the exploration and most of the story elements are gone.

      Still pretty excited, I love KB.

    I've played it on Facebook, and quit since some quests in order to be completed demanded I bully people into joining/playing the game, plus the wait timer, to recover energy needed for actions started really getting on my nerves bit later in the game.

    actually you have a pretty long pve story there "save the world by beating that evil necromancers, blabla" :)

  • Professionalbum

    Just a shame it's an iPad release only(according to the pictures on the official site). I hope I'm wrong.

    • dcalbie

      Another total bummer (no offense Professionalbum), well, I'm not going to worry too much until we get more information. If they can get this running on the iPad maybe a full port won't be far behind.

    Damn it's only iPad release but I want to say this gonna shake ios lol

  • Darkworth
