With an isometric view, HeroWarz is a fast paced, engaging online PC action MMO game that allows players to choose from many different playable characters, each with unique abilities and skills, and will be supported with constant content development. The game launched in September of last year in Korea and has been one of the most popular MMORPG’s there.
“We have been in talks to sign this deal to bring HeroWarz to North America and the western market for some time and we are very excited that it is finally a reality,” said Eugene Kim, CEO of KOG Games. “The game has been a huge success in Korea, hitting the top 10 at one point. We know that the game will really appeal to the Western market and we can’t wait to share more information and details later this year.”
Founded in 2010 and based in Irvine, California, KOG Games combines extensive game development and publishing expertise to bring players award-winning free-to-play massively multiplayer online games including Elsword.
Both A.Storm and KOG Games are companies known for their focus on providing deep and engaging action gaming experiences. A.Storm is a new developer headed by industry veteran and former Neople producer Kim Yoon Jong who is known for developing Dungeon Fighter Online and Cyphers, while KOG Games specializes in providing action games such Elsword and the award winning Grand Chase.
Kim Yoon Jong, a world renowned game developer and CEO of A.Storm states “Based on the success of Elsword in North America, we are truly excited to be servicing HeroWarz with KOG Games.
