Korea’s Smash Hit, Brown Dust, Launches Globally

It’s not uncommon for East Asia to create works that easily take the world by storm; take anime, k-pop and Yo-Yo Ma for example. Now add mobile games to list, as Korea-based publisher Neowiz plans to release their highly-successful Brown Dust to global markets. The mobile game has netted over three million downloads to date and continues to draw the attention of gamers around the world. Featuring turn-based combat, narrative-driven gameplay and over 1200 tactical battles, Brown Dust is easy to pick up and challenging to master.

Following the murder of Emperor Altair II during a revolt spurred by his most loyal general, Fabian “The Master of the Six Devils,” the world is in disarray and four nations splinter from the empire. Players assume the role of Fabian’s son, tasked with taking up their father’s mantle and forming their own army of Mercenaries to bring peace to the splintered lands of Brown Dust; they must find the truth about why their father committed treason and thrust the world into ceaseless war.

In addition to the story-driven gameplay, Brown Dust features over 300 mercenaries to collect for our armies, hundreds of ways to customize mercenaries, seasonal guild war PVP, dungeons, bosses and co-op raids. With all this content packed into a mobile game that’s free-to-play, it’s easy to see how Brown Dust topped the Asian regions. “Brown Dust’s success in Asia has been as exhilarating as it has been humbling,” said Sean Kim, Game Director on Brown Dust.

The title is scheduled to release globally on March 7 for Android and iOS.
