“Ancient AR looks pretty freakin’ awesome.”
– Jake Collins (Mobile Game Hunt)
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.”
