FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PALO ALTO, CALIF. – OCT. 18, 2017 – Tencent Games’ highly anticipated and ultra-competitive mobile MOBA (massive online battle arena), Arena of Valor, today opened pre-registration on iOS and Android (https://www.arenaofvalor.com/preregister/ ). Players pre-registering will receive a variety of exclusive in-game rewards and items in the free-to-play game, including skins and precious in-game currency.

Launching soon, Arena of Valor offers a polished, competitive 5v5 experience perfected for mobile, featuring turbocharged teamfights in quick 10-15 minute matches. A variety of champions fit any play style, making the game easy to pick up and play, but incredibly difficult to master.

Tencent has aligned Arena of Valor with best-in-class partners for the western version of the hit game, including Academy Award winning music composer Hans Zimmer who has written an unforgettable soundtrack for Arena of Valor. The company also championed a partnership with DC Comics to make superheroes from the DC universe playable heroes complete with official lore. Batman, Van Helsing and Wonder Woman will debut after launch. 

Utilizing Tencent Games' strength in mobile development, the team designed Arena of Valor for North American gamers — custom-tailoring the UI, controls, art style and champions for the West.
