Premium Mobile RPG ‘Ex Astris’ From ‘Arknights’ Developer Gets Huge Gameplay, Combat, and Graphics Update

TouchArcade Rating:

In February this year, Arknights developer Hypergryph’s premium RPG Ex Astris ($9.99) has officially launched on mobile. It is an excellent game that I included as one of the best mobile games of 2024 so far (in March). Since launch, Ex Astris hadn’t gotten any notable updates aside from some in-game patches. Today, the Ex Astris version 1.1.0 update has gone live. This is the first big post-launch update for the game, and it arrives with graphics optimizations, gameplay improvements, stat changes, loot changes, and more. The Ex Astris 1.1.0 patch notes mention improvements to game performance, graphics, models, art, texture quality, cut-scenes, specific chapter environments, UI, tutorials, story narration, exploration, stats progression, skill effects, and more. That’s a big update for sure. I can’t wait to play it later today to see how it feels now after launch. If you’ve not played it yet, watch the gameplay and launch video below:

Full patch notes for the update are here on Twitter with excerpts on the App Store listing for the game. I’m glad to see so much player feedback addressed in the game’s first update. Hopefully we see some paid DLC in the future as well. Ex Astris is a premium mobile RPG priced at $9.99. If you’d like to play Ex Astris, you can buy it on the App Store for iOS here and on Google Play for Android here. You can also check out the official Ex Astris official English website here for more gameplay and story details. Hopefully this business model works out for the developers and we see more games like Ex Astris in the future. What do you think of Ex Astris if you grabbed it at launch, and do you play Arknights regularly?
