After being in open beta for a few months on Android, the Free-to-Play Action-RPG SoulCraft is now also available on iOS. The game immediately jumped to the top chart positions for role playing games in several countries, including Russia and South Korea.
“We are really happy with the warm welcome the iOS users are giving us”, says Karsten Wysk, CEO of MobileBits. “Over 300.000 testers have been helping to shape the game during the open beta on Android… since both platforms like the game it seems Android and iOS users are not so different after all.”
SoulCraft will continue to be developed on both Android and iOS with major new improvements coming in the next few weeks. Players are invited to take part in this process to continuously tweak and improve the game.
