From the creators of Blitzkrieg, Heroes of Might & Magic V and Etherlords, Prime World adds the best features of deep MMORPGs to a fast paced MOBA. It merges persistent hero development and character customization with Player-vs-Player and Player-vs-Environment gameplay. In addition, the game features story-driven battles and castle building all within a competitive online setting. Players can hire, equip, and train their choice of dozens of heroes between battles using collectible and upgradable talents and build a thriving economy in their city. Players can even start their own clan and fight other clans in battles for victory, glory, and priceless Prime!
Over the course of the game's beta period, Nival has combined all regional community servers into a global server to create a massively improved matchmaking system for fast queues and balanced opponents during battle. Powerful new heroes, skins and talents have been integrated into the game as well. Geolocation-based rankings now allow players to see how much more skilled they are than other nearby players and a robust and detailed tutorial now welcomes new, beginner players to the game.
"It has been an amazing journey creating Prime World, a game that we feel truly stands on its own compared to other MOBAs," said Sergey Orlovskiy, Founder and CEO of Nival. "Our goal was to create a game that touched on many of the popular components seen in other games of these genres, but to create something unique that players haven't exactly seen before. Through the open beta we've heard all of the feedback from players, and now with some major improvements integrated into the game, we are more excited than ever to release Prime World to the masses!"
Prime World has garnered accolades from gamers and press alike, including being named "Best Action Game" at E3 2013 by Flesh Eating Zipper and "Best MOBA" at E3 2013 by RTSGuru.com.
