Blizzard Entertainment, a division of Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI), revealed recently what's in the cards for Hearthstone®: Heroes of Warcraft™-an all-new Adventure that will challenge brave duelists to venture forth from the comfort of the tavern and plunge into the depths of Blackrock Mountain™! The newest addition to Hearthstone's Adventure Mode will introduce a slew of new hot-headed bosses to put players' dueling skills to the test. The Blackrock Mountain Adventure thrusts Hearthstone players into the middle of a war between powerful forces battling for control of the mountain. There, duelists will encounter fierce minions, including Dark Iron dwarves, fire elementals, and dragons, before facing off against iconic menaces from the Warcraft® universe, such as Ragnaros, the Firelord. Card-slingers who take down these villains will reap a mighty reward-31 scorching new cards inspired by the legendary mountain and its denizens, bringing a wealth of new tactical options to the ever-evolving Hearthstone metagame. On Wedneday, ATVI closed up .31% on over 3.6 million shares traded.
Zynga, Inc.'s (NASDAQ: ZNGA) subsidiary NaturalMotion recently announced the launch of the much-awaited game, Dawn of Titans by 2015-end. Dawn of Titans, an action packed fantasy strategy game, is primarily designed for Apple Inc. AAPL iPhone and iPad users. The game would allow users to build kingdoms and engage in battles involving Titans, soldiers, archers and pikemen, to name a few. We believe that the game will help Zynga attract new players and improve its position in the gaming industry, which has otherwise been witnessing a downtrend given the overall financial underperformance.
