LOS ANGELES – August 8, 2022 – Netmarble, a leading developer and publisher of high-quality mobile games, announces beta test of an all-new 4X strategy simulation title, GRAND CROSS W. Featuring 2D anime-style graphics, players will experience the excitement of strategic, large-scale battles between worlds and servers.

In GRAND CROSS W, battles have erupted across the world of Skyna from the invading armies of Chaos. Players will join forces with the main hero Layla, as they build armies, construct buildings, and train troops in an effort to restore the war-torn territory. Battles can be won by summoning heroes from other worlds (the Transcendents of GRAND CROSS) and using the magical power of Lapis.

The game features large-scale, real-time, immersive siege wars across land and air. Several game modes will be available for all players to enjoy including Single Player stages, World (Field) and Capturing, Castle War, Server vs. Server War, Story Chapters and Territory Expansion, and Territory Customization. Lead multiple troop-types to win battles such as Infantry, Archers, Cavalry, and Combat Engineers. Ranged archers and air units add a new strategic component to the game and can turn the tide of the war. Long-range combat allows players to attack across rivers, while air units are capable of crossing tall mountain ranges.

Beta test will be held from August 19 through August 28. Players can begin downloading the game starting from August 7 on Google Play (Android) and CUBE (PC).

The complete version of the game will be available on Android, iOS and PC devices in the future.
