Netmarble has announced that they will be bringing popular open-world RPG, A3: Still Alive over to iOS and Android for the rest of the world. It's available to pre-register now on both platforms and the App Store listing suggests a release date of November 30th, though this could change.

The game itself is based on A3, a South Korean PC game, and looks to blend the large and living open-worlds often found in RPGs with the tension and combat of a battle royale. This means players will have to be alert at all times as PvP is always open.

The game's setting is very much inspired by dark fantasy and thus features a post-apocalyptic world with swords and sorcery. Aside from battling against other people, players will also engage in hack & slash combat with enemies in a continuous search find better gear.
