IRVINE, Calif.—October 3, 2023—Players are invited to experience the dazzling new sensation that’s been sweeping Azeroth, when Blizzard Entertainment’s mobile action strategy game Warcraft Rumble™ launches worldwide* on Android and iOS devices on November 3, live at BlizzCon! In taverns from Winterspring to Booty Bay, Horde and Alliance alike are gathering around a marvelous new machine, which brings miniature versions of their famous heroes and villains to life to do battle in strategic, frantic skirmishes.
“Warcraft Rumble is a joyful (and mobile!) expression of the greatest hits of Azeroth, lovingly crafted by a team with deep roots in the Warcraft universe,” said Vik Saraf, executive producer of Warcraft Rumble. “Thanks to the support of players who participated in our closed beta, our ongoing regional soft launch has been invigorating, and now it’s time to let the rest of the world join in the fun. We can’t wait to get Warcraft Rumble into players’ hands worldwide on November 3. We’re confident that whether you’re new to the Warcraft universe or a long-time veteran, you’ll find the perfect army to unleash your personal brand of joyful chaos!”
The first Warcraft game built from the ground up for mobile allows you to build and command miniature armies made up of heroes, villains, and creatures from the Warcraft universe. Deploy legendary characters from throughout Warcraft history—featuring the likes of Jaina Proudmoore, Grommash Hellscream, Hogger, and more—as you put your strategy skills to the test in a variety of gameplay modes, both solo and against other players. Each mission in the massive single-player campaign presents a distinct, bite-sized strategic puzzle to solve, while deep player-versus-player systems, deadly Dungeons, and many other gameplay modes hold plenty of challenges for players of all skill levels.
In celebration of the upcoming launch of Warcraft Rumble, Blizzard Entertainment will be giving away 3D-printer blueprints for Warcraft Rumble Minis for free throughout the month of October on Mini Mondays! Starting this week with the Alliance, each week will feature a new family of Minis and their blueprints, as well as some helpful tips and tricks for how to make the most of their unique strengths in Warcraft Rumble.
Moreover, players who complete the tutorial within two weeks of launch will receive a set of four mecha-themed items to customize the in-game look of both their profiles and armies. Players can pre-register now to be notified when Warcraft Rumble is available!
As a final surprise for the citizens of Azeroth looking to gear up for launch, starting today, players in World of Warcraft® will be able to find Warcraft Rumble arcade machines in the taverns of the four major Dragonflight zones, as well as Valdrakken, Orgrimmar and Stormwind. Through gathering hidden Rumble Coins and Rumble Foils, World of Warcraft players can unlock and customize a total of seven collectible Minis from Warcraft Rumble!
Blizzard Entertainment will share more about Warcraft Rumble on its worldwide launch day live at BlizzCon, taking place at the Anaheim Convention Center and streamed live at BlizzCon.com.
