War Storm collaboration expands popular mobile game to more players worldwide
VICTORIA, BC: Players of KIXEYE’s popular mobile game War Commander: Rogue Assault can enjoy an enriched game experience thanks to the addition of War Storm, a new Arabic title published in collaboration with Babil Games.
Available worldwide, War Storm uses the existing Rogue Assault universe to offer Arabic-speaking players the chance to join in their own language. This achievement is part of a strategic mandate to cultivate excellence in gaming by sharing strengths among Stillfront Group’s world-class portfolio of game studios.
“We all bring unique experience to the table—KIXEYE as a skilled game developer, Babil as a leading MENA publisher, and Goodgame as a marketing powerhouse,” said Tyler Black, Chief Strategy Officer for KIXEYE. “War Storm is one of many planned collaborations, and we are looking forward to building on our Stillfront partnerships to set a new standard for quality and engagement in the gaming industry.”
War Storm players compete in the same real-time combat strategy universe as existing Rogue Assault players from around the world. Arabic players enjoy a localized experience including dedicated customer support, social channels and alliances.
War Storm includes significant direction from Babil Games, a leading publisher in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. The studio worked closely with KIXEYE to successfully navigate the growing MENA market and optimize War Storm for Arabic players worldwide.
“We always considered KIXEYE as a modern strategy producer that has its own secrets in innovating and developing twists to the genre,” said AJ Fahmi, COO and co-founder of Babil Games. “We are now thrilled to work aside them and present this experience to our part of the world.”
The project also leans heavily on the mobile marketing experience of Goodgame Studios. KIXEYE and Babil Games have existing success with Goodgame Studios, achieving profitable user acquisition for existing titles.
War Storm is available worldwide on Apple iTunes and Google Play under its Arabic title, Asefat Al-Harb.
