Tencent, the richest video game publisher in the world, has decided to strike a blow by announcing Honor of Kings: World, either the declination action rpg in open world mega-hit game Honor of kings (more than 100 million daily players on the mobile platform). Once again, the task has been given to TiMi Studios (the creator of Honor of Kings), who will collaborate for the occasion with Liu Cixin, an author of science fiction books extremely popular in China. The first trailer of the game is not satisfied with simple cutscenes and the few sequences of gameplay unveiled (including a spectacular boss fight) are already particularly convincing.
