Experience the most authentic MMORPG experience on mobile with Crusaders of Light, featuring over 300 hours of available gameplay, epic raids of up to 40 players, and PvP-ranked arena battles of up to 40v40. Players can team up with friends to form a guild and take on others in the arena to earn their respect and establish dominance. Coordinate and strategize with guildmates via integrated voice chat whether you’re battling a legendary dragon or in the town center comparing rare gear or one of 50 kickass mounts — from a flying carpet to the raid boss, “Flaming Gorghana.”

Players begin their journey by choosing one of three classes – Ranger, Warrior or Mystic – each with its own gameplay style and strengths, and kick off the adventure by gaining XP to earn loot and level up to learn new skills. Once the advanced character progression system is unlocked at level 20, players can work to achieve legendary status. But until then, players must earn their way to greatness one conquest at a time whether in the 1v1, 3v3, and 5v5 PvP arena battles or taking on Milura’s most dangerous beasts on their travels.
