Petroglyph announced today that its eagerly anticipated free-to-play Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) game, Rise of Immortals, has launched and is now available to all players at http://signup.riseofimmortals.com.
Rise of Immortals, an online, free-to-play PC game that expands on the hit battle arena genre with new, innovative features that encourage socialization and cooperation. Rise of Immortals launches today after several months of beta testing and now offers players access to the full game, including the ability to purchase potions, artifacts, Immortals and skins through the game’s item store.
Steve Wetherill, executive producer of the game said:
“Development of Rise of Immortals is a labor of love for Petroglyph. We started with a group of designers, artists and engineers with a passion for battle arena games, and ended up with an incredible title that brings dozens of fresh, innovative features to the genre. I couldn’t be more proud of the team or more excited about how Rise of Immortals turned out and where it will go from here.”

Rise of Immortals is a free-to-play, micro-transaction-based online game that is available via direct download. The game features the popular action-strategy gameplay of traditional MOBA games, but adds enhanced socialization features, along with persistent character progression – a first for the MOBA genre. In addition, Rise of Immortals features a social hub where players can show off their enhanced Immortals, chat, emote, browse leaderboards, shop, update friend lists and more. Players also have the option of taking their Immortals through cooperative Player versus Environment (PvE) scenarios to learn the game, try out new abilities, and earn persistent experience before jumping into Player versus Player (PvP) matches online.
