Com2uS, the creators of the world-renowned fantasy RPG franchise Summoners War has released the highly-anticipated Summoners War: Lost Centuria.
The follow-up title to the hugely popular mobile RPG Summoners War: Sky Arena, Summoners War: Lost Centuria has garnered more than 6 million pre-registrations in anticipation of its new action-packed strategic PvP gameplay and expansive in-game world. Set in the era before Sky Arena in the war-torn Efrana Kingdom, Lost Centuria features an immersive real-time battle system that allows players to strategically deploy fearsome monsters and summoner spells, upgrading their units to rise up the leaderboards and restore the kingdom. Players can download Summoners Wars: Lost Centuria now via the Apple App Store and Google Play.
“Summoners War is a franchise that has reached over 100 million fans around the world and we could not be more excited to further expand the franchise with the launch of Summoners War: Lost Centuria and our first venture into comics which further builds on the lore of this series,” said Kyu Lee, President at GAMEVIL COM2US USA, “The Summoners War: Lost Centuria experience serves as a great entry point for those new to the franchise as well as our existing massive fanbase through its fast, fun and strategic PvP combat that will showcase the true breadth and depth of the incredible characters and world of this series.”
Summoners War: Lost Centuria takes the Summoners War franchise in an entirely new direction, fusing classic monsters and gameplay with a new combat system that maximizes the thrill of each individual match. Battles unfold in real time, making for a fast-paced combat experience. Players can take command by spending Mana on skill cards and unleashing powerful, once-per-battle summoner spells to turn the tide of battle in their favor, or counter opponents’ skills directly with counterattack mode. Players will experience a multitude of ways to battle enemies and NPCs with various PvP and PvE modes in Lost Centuria, including:
Ranked Battle - The main PvP mode of the game, where players can increase their “grade” based on “victory points” earned from battling opponents.
Normal Battle - This PvP mode is best used for practice, and allows players to earn rewards without touching their “victory points.”
Barrier Battle - Both players fight with the same buff or debuff in this PvP mode to earn victory points. Some barriers last 4 days and generate up to 10 victory points.
Siege Battle - PvE campaign-style mode where players fight through 12 chapters, each with 3 stages. New chapters unlock as the player’s grade increases, and players can earn unique rewards as they conquer each chapter.
Wanted - After completing a Siege Battle stage, the final boss battle will appear in Wanted and players will receive a reward for defeating the Wanted target.
Hall of Fame & Cheer - Watch the intense battles of other players and predict the winner.
Add in dozens of monsters to collect and upgrade, skill stones that enhance monster abilities, and several gameplay modes for players to enjoy, and it becomes clear that Lost Centuria delivers an engaging experience that will keep players battling for years to come.

In addition, Super Junior singer Eun-hyuk and comedian Jinho Lee donated $11,000 to a Korean organization related to preventing and supporting victims of crimes against children.
