The Post-Apocalyptic Future Never Looked So Good: Kabam Releases Dark District for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Kabam, the leader in the western world for free-to-play core games,
today announced the launch of Dark District for iPhone, iPad and
iPod touch, with an Android (News - Alert) release coming soon on Google Play. A
science fiction-themed combat strategy game, Dark District raises
the bar of the tower defense genre by putting players in full control of
their mechs during battle in a visually stunning 3D world.
"Dark District rises above the countless number of tower defense
games on the market," said Andrew Sheppard, president of Kabam Studios.
"By creating a high-fidelity 3D world that pushes the graphical
capabilities of the latest hardware and empowers players to control
every aspect of combat, Dark District achieves a visceral
gameplay experience that blows past player expectations."
Dark District is a sci-fi thriller that places players in a
dystopian society set in the future on Tenebri, a tidally locked planet
orbiting a star distant from Earth. Dark District, a remote mining
colony without daylight, became the epicenter of an amazing new source
of energy. Communication with Earth was mysteriously lost and the city
has exploded into chaos. Players are able to build a district, train an
army of mech units and engage in visceral combat against conflicting
factions in a battle for dominance. They can also strategically select
targets during attacks and command fully controllable mechs to own the
future. Dark District Game features include:
Strategic live assaults: Command fully controllable mechs,
ground and air vehicles with the ability to change approach mid-action.
Experience the future in stunning 3D: The cityscape of this
post-apocalyptic future has never looked so good.
Band together to be victorious: Form an alliance with other
players to seize power against other factions. A strategic partnership
can raise individuals to the top of the leaderboards.
Merciless single and multiplayer combat: Select PvE single mode
to progress through campaigns or PvP multiplayer mode to attack live
The�Dark District App is available for free from the App
Store on iPhone (News - Alert), iPad and iPod touch. For more information visit www.kabam.com.
