Speaking to Pocket Gamer at Gamescom, Nival Interactive revealed that its upcoming ‘hardcore’ freemium title King’s Bounty: Legions is not compatible with the Facebook version, meaning any progress made on the social network will not carry over once it’s released on mobiles.

This also means that PvP will be restricted to smartphone gamers only, which is likely to limit the pool of players when the game first launches.

King’s Bounty: Legions is currently in Beta on Facebook and is the freemium spin-off to the successful PC strategy-RPG.

The new title isn’t too far removed from the original games, in that you explore a land awash with quests and monsters, recruit armies to fight the good fight, and get stuck into turn-based hexagonal battling.

What is different is that you now have a stamina gauge that limits movement and actions over time, as well as replacing the 3D exploration sequences across the land with a more simplified menu system.

The mobile build we saw (running on an Android tablet) was still very much early-doors, in that the speed was atrocious, but Nival is currently working on optimising the game for its release.

King’s Bounty: Legions will be out on iOS and Android later this year.
