Animoca Brands has recently announced that they have entered into an exclusive agreement with China-based digital entertainment and technology company Tencent to distribute one of their mobile games across the WeChat platform in five countries. Thanks to this new deal, Armies of Dragons will be distributed on WeChat in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. The title will be distributed on the platform for a period of one year, on a revenue share agreement for funds generated from in-app purchases. From what we’re told, Armies of Dragons will be available for download on WeChat in November 2015.
The partnership with Animoca Brands related to an ongoing push from WeChat to diversify their offerings and expand into new areas. The deal also includes the right of first negotiation to exclusively publish and distribute sequel titles or games substantially similar to Armies of Dragons. For those who are new to the game, it is a medieval-themed tower defense strategy game originally released in August 2014 and has gathered 750,000 downloads.
