Rumble’s Action-RPG Combines Stunning Visuals and Sophisticated Game Design with Instant Accessibility, Signals the Dawn of a New Era of Games for Facebook and Browsers
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Mar. 5, 2013 – Rumble Entertainment, a leading developer and publisher dedicated to creating groundbreaking premium free-to-play games, has opened the highly anticipated action role-playing game (RPG) KingsRoad to all adventurers across Facebook and web browsers. Now in open beta, KingsRoad combines the epic scope of traditional RPGs with the accessibility offered by browser games. With session-based gameplay, drop-in cooperative multiplayer, and absolutely no barriers to entry, KingsRoad gives players a truly epic action-RPG experience every time they log in.
“We have been pouring our hearts into reshaping what players can expect from a Facebook or browser game,” said Greg Richardson, CEO, Rumble Entertainment. “We are thrilled to share KingsRoad’s beautiful 3D visuals, intense action gameplay, and instant multiplayer connectivity with gamers around the globe.”
In KingsRoad, players take on the role of knight, archer, or wizard, embarking on a journey across the kingdom of Alderstone to reclaim their land from the monstrous creatures that threaten it. KingsRoad offers brutal real-time combat, a robust loot and skill system, and towering bosses with none of the daunting time commitment associated with RPGs of the past.
The amazing 3D visuals in KingsRoad are powered by the latest version of Adobe Flash Player® 11 and Stage3D technology, which streams high-fidelity graphics with no download or delay.
“We’ve designed Stage3D to allow game developers the creative freedom they need to bring high quality game experiences to the web with no delay and no compromises,” said Bill Howard, Flash Player group product manager, Adobe. “Rumble utilized Adobe Game Developer Tools to deliver its first stunning game, KingsRoad, to take advantage of everything that Flash Player 11 has to offer.”
To celebrate KingsRoad entering open beta, Rumble Entertainment is holding a series of launch week events, including contests, giveaways, tournaments, a Twitch.tv livecast, and more. For a full list of activities, visit http://rumblegam.es/X8K8Lm.
