Krafton Unveils Dark and Darker Mobile at G-STAR 2023, Promising a Unique Blend of Adventure and Survival
The company officially introduced 'Dark and Darker Mobile,' a highly anticipated adaptation of their explosive gaming hit, set to launch in 2024.
Krafton, the renowned South Korean video game developer and publisher behind BGMI, made a groundbreaking reveal at G-STAR 2023, an international gaming event in Busan. The company officially introduced "Dark and Darker Mobile," a highly anticipated adaptation of their explosive gaming hit, set to launch in 2024. This unveiling marks the first public appearance of the game since Krafton secured an exclusive global licensing deal with IRONMACE for its adaptation to mobile platforms.
Developed by Krafton's Bluehole Studio, Dark and Darker Mobile aims to captivate mobile gamers by combining the intrigue of dungeon crawlers, the depth of RPGs, and the intense tension of battle royale survival. The game seeks to recreate the unique extraction-based gameplay that made the original Dark and Darker title an exhilarating experience for gamers. Leveraging Krafton's extensive mobile gaming expertise, the title will be meticulously tailored and optimized for mobile users, promising seamless performance and an engaging experience on the mobile platform.
Rafael Lim, Senior Head of the Publishing Business Division at Krafton, expressed enthusiasm about the debut of Dark and Darker Mobile at G-STAR 2023. Lim stated, "We believe that Dark and Darker Mobile will resonate with mobile players by capturing the spirit of the PC version with engaging survival mechanics, immersive exploration, and intense extraction gameplay. Our goal is to surpass fan expectations with a truly unique mobile gaming experience."
The announcement follows Krafton's strategic move in August to secure an exclusive global licensing deal with game developer IRONMACE for the mobile adaptation of the Dark and Darker IP.
Dark and Darker Mobile offers players a choice between five distinct classes—Fighter, Barbarian, Ranger, Rogue, and Cleric—before embarking on a daring journey filled with hidden treasures, unique environments, and emergent gameplay opportunities.
As adventurers explore dark dungeons in search of untold riches, a mysterious magnetic field known as the Dark Swarm gradually forces opposing players and other dangers closer together. To escape with their loot and their lives, adventurers must locate an escape portal or face the consequences of losing everything. Each adventure promises a new narrative with opportunities for limitless treasures or absolute doom. The launch in 2024 is eagerly anticipated by fans and mobile gaming enthusiasts alike.
