As promised, we're gonna unload all the details about Warcraft Arclight Rumble, including the release date, platforms, pre-registration, and gameplay!

Warcraft Arclight Rumble - Release Date

Blizzard has not revealed an official release date for Warcraft Arclight Rumble yet. However, the game is expected to be released sometime in 2022 after it successfully completes its scheduled run of beta tests.

That isn't a guarantee, though, and based on player feedback, it may be pushed into 2023.

Warcraft Arclight Rumble - Platforms

Warcraft Arclight Rumble is currently only available for Android, with the game set to be available for iOS later in 2022. We could see Blizzard expand on the platforms available for this game once the player base grows. We've seen this happen plenty before, for example, Gameloft's racing game, Asphalt 9, was brought to the Nintendo Switch and Steam long after its initial release on mobile platforms.

Warcraft Arclight Rumble - Gameplay

Gameplay Warcraft Arclight

Warcraft Arclight Rumble is a mobile action strategy game where collectible Warcraft Minis - some of which will reference characters from Blizzard's Warcraft game - come to life and clash in melee battles. The action is similar to that found in Supercell's Clash Royale, you place units, and then they move of their own accord, though, unlike Clash Royale, there are set points where you can change your unit's path - adding another layer of complexity to the title.

Players will be able to choose between a massive single-player campaign or competing against other players online in epic PvP battles.

We can hope to see additional new features, game modes, and collectible Minis be introduced to the game once the game is released and made available for all mobile players. But altogether, Blizzard warns players to "prepare to experience the true meaning of joyful chaos!"
