MU publisher Webzen promised to release its latest mobile strategy game First Hero in early 2018, and true to its word, the studio has soft launched the title in Canada, Latin America, and the Philippines.

Available on iOS and Android devices in those territories, the game is a strategy affair featuring “epic heroes from all over the world and strategy battles.” Take a look at the official teaser video.

First Hero will see players recruiting legendary heroes from history and pitting them against rival clans in dynamic skirmishes. When you’re not overseeing the action on the battlefield, you’ll be building up bases, levelling up your warriors, and forging alliances with other empires. Players will earn rewards for winning battles and receive goodies each time they log in.

Players in the soft launch territories can snap up First Hero for free via the App Store and Google Play, and it will be winging its way to Europe and the US in the first half of 2018.
