Russian mobile MMORPG Age of Heroes Online coming to iPhone

| |


Age_of_Empires_Online_1The Russian mobile MMORPG Age of Heroes Online boasts over 35,000 subscribers on its native shores, and will now serve as an iPhone debut for developer Qplaze.

What's particularly exciting - other than Age of Heroes Online finally becoming available to English speaking territories - is that Qplaze's hit MMORPG will hopefully be a cross-platform game. It seems the Russian developer will be using the launch of its second server to host games for the English-speaking regions, which should service both the Java and iPhone communities along with an increase of the game's level cap, addition of new locations and introduction of a new game race.



Age of Heroes Online is a fantasy game of quite epic proportions, with no time or space limits, packed with maps, missions, exploration and adventure. It features three races (each with a unique set of features and skills),nine classes with completely different approaches to battle and world exploration, and more than one hundred creatures, warriors and monsters that can join your army.

The Russian J2ME version currently requires a subscription, so in all likelihood the iPhone translation might not become available until the 3.0 firmware update, which will allow publishers to employ micro-transaction in their games. We'll be keeping a close eye on the iPhone adaptation of Age of Heroes Online (check out the official site here), so don't go far.

From the developer:

At the moment Age of Heroes Online is the largest multi-player mobile project within CIS uniting more than 35 000 registered users. The project is constantly developing and growing. Among the nearest planned innovations is the launch of the second, English-speaking server of Age of Heroes Online developed with a glance at requirements of European mobile operators and also a range of updates to the game itself.

New client will allow iPhone users to easily and comfortably join the ranks of Age of Heroes Online players. The client is planned to be released in the second half-year of 2009.
