If you’re having a bit of deja vu, don’t worry. The matrix does not bug. Tencent, honor of kings‘, technically already did this when it was released Arena of Valor — a westernized version of honor of kings – in 2017.
honor of kings is a 5v5 multiplayer online battle arena (also known as MOBA) similar to Riot’s League of Legends or valve DOTA 2. In honor of kings, players can choose characters from Chinese mythology to build their teams, and the game has extensive social features such as chat integration that uses popular Chinese social apps such as QQ and WeChat. It is not known if these features will be available in the global version of honor of kings or if it will be replaced by applications more rooted in the Western market like Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp.
Mobile games are the most popular form of gambling in the world. games like Call of duty mobile, candy Crush, and PUBG-Mobile raise billions of dollars a year. Even in markets like the US and Europe, where there is an unfortunate stigma attached to mobile gaming, it still dominates gaming revenue and downloads with hits like Genshin Impact and, more recently, Diablo Immortal. That Tencent and TiMi Studio Group want to expand their reach with honor of kings in a climate that seems almost inexhaustibly hungry for new mobile games makes perfect sense.
