Mobile MMO Star Legends Will Be Google Chrome’s First Multiplayer, 3-D Game
Mobile developer Spacetime Studios has a hit on its hands with Star Legends, the sci-fi-based follow-up to its MMO Pocket Legends. That game has a community of better than 3 million fans, and Star Legends seems to be growing just as fast as its free-to-play mobile predecessor.
Now, players itching for a new (slightly smaller scale) MMO fix who aren’t really into the whole mobile gaming scene will get access to Star Legends for the first time. The game is coming as a native client to Google Chrome, the search company’s free web browser, where players will be able to team up with other players on PC, Mac, Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS. It’ll also be the first 3-D game on the Chrome platform. It’s not available yet, but when it is, you can get it from the Chrome Web App Store.
Star Legends isn’t as robust an MMO as some of the other free-to-play clients out there, but that might be to its credit. It’s totally pick-up-and-play-able, which is nice, and the casual nature makes it fun to spend some time with but not necessarily as insanely time-consuming as, say, World of Warcraft.
