Event is the first collaboration of its kind between MY.GAMES and Croteam
7 December – Pixonic, MY.GAMES studio and developer of the popular War Robots mobile game, has today announced its first-ever collaboration with another developer, Croteam, and the Serious Sam franchise.
This is the first collaboration with another brand in War Robots history. The event was co-created with Croteam and based on the franchise’s latest title, Serious Sam 4.
The partnership was formed after Maxim Fomichev, producer of War Robots, reached out to Croteam when Serious Sam 4 was first released. The developers began swapping ideas, and this festive crossover event was the result.
War Robots is one of MY.GAMES’ most successful titles, and one of the top-5 revenue-generating mobile games for the company. In Q3, the game reached a new milestone of 180 million downloads worldwide. War Robots Remastered was recently featured in September’s Apple Event.
Serious Sam 4 was released in August 2020, developed by Croatian studio Croteam and published by Devolver Digital.
During the crossover event, players will experience:
- Typhon — a four-armed robot
- Octanian — a drone from the Mental (the antagonist hero from Serious Sam franchise) army
- Skirmish mode: Serious Sam style
- Hangar decorations with Christmas trees and beheaded kamikazes
- Hawk and Nucleon remodelled
- New Typhon skin
- Event pilot: Sam Stone himself
- Changes to the Rome map
This holiday season, War Robots players will meet Beheaded Kamikaze monsters throwing themselves under robots, and Sam Stone driving a Papamobile through the streets of Rome. With giant Lovecraftian monsters hovering above the ancient city, obviously.
Players will also be able to participate in arena battles called “Serious Games”, compete in a series of quests with awards and prizes, and also don kamikaze clothes to fight Papamobiles and vice versa.
The event will take place from December 7, 2020, to January 12, 2021. After that, Sam will return to his world to fight Mental hordes there.
