While a lot of people are focused on Diablo Immortal, Blizzard is busy working on another mobile game. The studio revealed the strategy game Warcraft Arclight Rumble, set in the World of Warcraft universe. Designed from the ground up, it has players build armies with their favorite Warcraft heroes and villains and fight it out in different scenarios designed to test their tactical skills.

If you're having trouble imagining what the game really is, think Clash Royale. The main difference from other games in the same genre is that it has a single-player campaign that offers more than 70 missions. The game does have a PvP mode, for those who are asking.

That’s not all since Warcraft Arclight Rumble also has dungeons available each week for cooperative raids.

Family and Leaders

One of the game's features is for players to choose a family that has their back. Within each family are leaders that serve as the backbone of a successful army. Here’s what players can expect:

  • Alliance
    • Support defense, healing, and stealth tactics.
    • Also known for heavy use of Spells.
    • Leaders include:
      • Tirion Fordring
      • Maiev Shadowsong
      • Jaina Proudmoore
  • Horde
    • Build momentum by earning extra gold, fast attacking Troops, and enemy control with AOE stuns.
    • Leaders include:
      • Grommash Hellscream
      • Sneed
      • Cairne Bloodhoof
  • Blackrock
    • Has heavy-hitting flying Troops and searing elemental magic users to burn opponents to a crisp.
    • Leaders include:
      • Rend Blackhand
      • General Drakkisath
  • Undead
    • Has access to the power of necromancy.
    • Leaders include:
      • Bloodmage Thalnos
      • Baron Rivendare
  • Beasts
    • Disable defenses and overwhelm the enemy.
    • Leaders include:
      • Charlga Razorflank
      • Hogger

Capture Objectives

One thing that’s important to keep in mind is capturing objectives like Guard Towers and Meeting Stones. Doing so allows them to deploy their troops closer to the boss while also getting that battlefield advantage. The reverse also works, so if the enemy gets hold of the players’ Meeting Stone or Guard Towers, then there’s a big chance it’s game over.

Get Those Bounties

It wouldn’t be as fun without rewards. Players need to make sure that they dominate the lanes, so they must grab gold. It’s available at Gold Nodes and Treasure Chests.
