Warcraft Arclight Rumble is a fast-paced, free-to-play mobile action strategy game coming later this year to Android and iOS devices in select regions, Blizzard Entertainment announced Tuesday.

The reveal was made with a trio of trailers, as well as a brand-new website dedicated to the game, where interested players can pre-register now for a chance to be included in future beta tests and get the latest information on its launch.

"Warcraft Arclight Rumble provides the sort of experience that we always strive to create at Blizzard," Blizzard president Mike Ybarra said in a press release. "It’s instantly fun, yet deep and rewarding over the long term, and we’re immensely proud to bring a new and authentic representation of Warcraft to mobile. We can’t wait for players to experience the joyful chaos of this game for themselves."

Designed from the ground up for mobile and set in the beloved Warcraft universe, Warcraft Arclight Rumble invites players to build armies with their favorite heroes and villains from the franchise and battle it out in unique missions designed to test their tactical wits.

The game is said to have over 65 characters from across the Warcraft universe (e.g. Jaina Proudmoore and Grommash Hellscream) reimagined as sculpted tabletop "Warcraft Minis" for players to collect and conquer with.

The Minis are said to be organized into five different classes — Alliance, Horde, Beast, Undead and Blackrock — each coming with their own unique abilities that players can use to counter enemy Troops.

Warcraft Arclight Rumble will reportedly offer a single-player campaign with over 70 replayable missions across Azeroth, as well as the ability to join Guilds and play with friends in co-op Raids or against them in competitive PvP.
