Enlist the Legendary Ancients to Defend Your Fleet in The Ancients AR

Now available on iOS

 

WARSAW, Poland – June 6, 2018 – The stunning strategy game The Ancients AR is launching today on iOS! Powered by Apple’s ARKit – and heading to Android in the near future – The Ancients AR tasks players with commanding a fleet of powerful warships in larger-than-life, full-scale sea battles that must be seen to be believed.

Behold the mighty Ancients: gigantic creatures able to cast lightning bolts, fireballs – and even summon a fire-spitting dragon! When all seems lost, the Ancients are called upon to defend the fleet and unleash hell on the battlefield …

The Ancients AR is a collaboration between Immersion CEO Piotr Baczyński and visionary artist Jakub Różalski, who worked together to capture Jakub’s vision of an immersive fantasy world where magic is alive and sea battles take place right in front of players. Jakub is known for his work on the World of 1920+ series and concept art for films such as Kong: Skull Island.

“I’ll never forget the first time I saw Jakub Różalski’s artwork. The powerful imagery in each of Jakub’s paintings moved us beyond our comfort zone – inspiring us to create the dangerous, uncharted world of The Ancients,” says Piotr Baczyński, CEO of Immersion. “It’s the perfect setting for a strategy game: a place where both traditional naval warfare and magic exist – and where these almost god-like creatures can turn the tide of battle in a split second!”

Originally envisioned as a VR game, Immersion is currently developing a VR version of The Ancients in cooperation with HTC Vive. In this version of the game, players will be able to take on the point-of-view of the Ancients themselves! The Ancients will be one of the first franchises with titles available for both VR and AR.

Premium ARKit Game The Ancients AR Coming Soon to iOS

Collaboration between Immersion and renowned artist Jakub Różalski (World of 1920+, Scythe)

 

WARSAW, Poland – April 24, 2018 – The Ancients AR can now be pre-ordered from the App Store! A jaw-dropping augmented reality game where players command a fleet of powerful warships, The Ancients AR features the legendary Ancients: gigantic creatures who are able to cast lightning bolts and fireballs – and even summon a fire-spitting dragon – in larger-than-life, full-scale sea battles that must be seen to be believed.

Jakub Różalski’s visionary art provided the starting point for The Ancients AR – a fantasy world in which the Ancients live in symbiosis with three island kingdoms engaged in an ongoing, neverending mutual war. Made famous by his work on the World of 1920+ series (which became the foundation of Scythe, the most popular board game of all time on Kickstarter), he has also created concept art for Hollywood productions such as Kong: Skull Island. Jakub collaborated with Immersion’s CEO Piotr Baczyński to lay down this vision onto the canvas: a mysterious, immersive fantasy world where magic is alive and sea battles take place right in front of players.

“Jakub Różalski’s stunning artwork inspired us to bring his vision of these huge, majestic creatures to life,” says Piotr Baczyński, CEO of Immersion. “The Ancients AR was originally only going to be released as a VR game when development began in 2016 – but once we realized that cutting-edge augmented reality was finally coming to iOS, we decided to initially focus on harnessing the power of ARKit and delivering the most visually arresting augmented reality game iOS users have ever seen.”
