Join the Monster Party in Summoners War: Chronicles

By | November 10, 2022

Summoners War: Chronicles is a cross-platform MMORPG experience based around the Summoners War series of tactical fantasy RPGs. Its huge, lush world features tons of activities and quests for single players and groups alike, making it a departure from Summoners War’s traditional turn-based battles.

Summoners War: Chronicles is a prequel to the events of the iconic Summoners War: Sky Arena. You adventure alongside one of three Summoners: The strong, courageous Cleaf, the tiny but magically-talented Kina, or the powerful spellcaster Orbia. Together, you explore several sprawling biomes like the ethereal forests of Ayah, the ancient lands of Rudelin, the beautiful, frozen Flurence—and many more.

Wherever you go, you have the opportunity to capture, collect, and train over 350 kinds of Monsters. Some Monsters in Summoners War: Chronicles are familiar, like the divine Archangel and the mischievous Joker. Other Monsters will meet you for the very first time. You’re responsible for making sure they reach their full potential: Even a seemingly low-class Monster can become a hard-hitting member of a Summoner’s team as long as they’re trained well. Combining and growing Monsters and equipment is your key to success in Summoners War: Chronicles. You also need to pay attention to the elemental make-up of each biome you visit, since Monsters are sensitive to elemental strengths and weaknesses. A wind-based Monster can lay the hurt on a water-based Monster, but a fire-based monster will thrash the wind-based monster. Light and Dark struggle against each other. The elements give and take in Summoners War: Chronicles, much like they do in Summoners War: Sky Arena. The Monsters aren’t fighting alone, however. Summoners War: Chronicles lets you beef up and customize your Summoner as you play through its story. In time, you should have a perfect team of powerful, excellent friends.

There’s a lot to see and do in Summoner War: Chronicles, and thankfully you can experience its digital kingdoms at a pace that works for you. Single players can enjoy the story by completing main story quests alongside several side quests. Exploration brings rewards like Monster Pieces, which is used to summon Monsters, power them up, and purchase runes to make them even stronger.

Playing Summoners War: Chronicles with—or against—friends offers even more unique activities. You can join a Guild to access rewards, and to easily team up with other Summoners who are keen to partner up for challenges. You can team up to take on powerful Raid bosses and unlock rare weapons and accessories for your Summoner. You can also work together through high-level Dungeons for rewards. Rupture events let you and your allies protect key targets for a chance to win Sky Stones, Gold, and other valuable materials that power-up your Summoner. But the Endgame Dungeons are Summoners War: Chronicles’ proving grounds.

Once the main story’s done, you can challenge the game’s most difficult dungeons and powerful bosses in groups of three. Victory, if you can achieve it, pays out big rewards. New dungeons will be released on a regular basis, and a ten-player dungeon is currently in the works. If you’re not in the mood to get along with other people, you can rumble via competitive multiplayer options like Challenge Arena and Brawl Arena. The Challenge Arena’s AI-controlled battles let you try your Monsters’ luck against preset defensive teams, while fights in the Brawl Arena, which will be added in a later update, pit you against other players who will try to smash you up.

Long-time Summoners War fans might initially be a bit surprised at the new gameplay mechanics driving Summoners War: Chronicles. Not only do you travel through a brand-new world made up of large, varied environments, but your success is also dependent on the synergy between your Summoner and your Monsters. You need to work as a team to support each other throughout your expedition, or risk failure. But no matter where you go in Summoners War: Chronicles, and no matter what you do, your awesome stable of Monsters will always back you up.

Summoners War: Chronicles is available November 10 on Steam, the App Store, Google Play, Google Play Games on PC, and Com2uS’ own gaming platform, HIVE.
