Discussing the latest event Jose Saarniniemi, CEO of Small Giant Games said: “We’re really excited to introduce our newest event to Empires & Puzzles. These new Mythic Titans are not to be underestimated as each comes with its own unique offensive and defensive capabilities.

He added: “They will challenge players and alliances to discover new tactics to effectively battle against them as well as compete for the top of the leaderboard and other exciting rewards.”
