TiMi Studios Launches Global Phenomenon Arena of Valor in Russia and MENA Territories Today

Leading Mobile MOBA Experience Played by 200 Million Players Worldwide Expanding Community as Player and Esports Fan Engagement Continues to Flourish

LOS ANGELESApril 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Global games developer TiMi Studios, a subsidiary of Tencent Games, released Arena of Valor in Russia as well as throughout Middle Eastern and North African territories (MENA) today, introducing new players to the world’s premiere mobile MOBA. Arena of Valor was previously available on the App Store or Google Play in 82 countries or regions. With newly-launched servers in MENA, Russia and South Asia, it’s expanded its reach to another 67 countries and regions.

The impending launch advances TiMi’s commitment to Arena of Valor’s growing community of 200 million registered players, bringing new regions into its international player base as month-over-month playtime continues to rise following TiMi’s widespread optimizations to the game in late 2019.

“Our understanding of the MOBA genre and our capabilities in competitive game development have given us a great advantage in the globalized value chain – we’ve been at the front end of high quality, high fidelity core game development for the mobile platform,” said Ray Ning, executive producer of Arena of Valor. “Leveraging our expertise, which is nurtured in China and proven in 82 countries and regions, we’re constantly investing in competitive games and working with players around the world to push the standard of the global mobile game industry to the next level.”

The Arena of Valor community has also solidified the game as the leading mobile esports experience. More than 40 million hours have been streamed by fans between the game’s major tournaments, Arena of Valor World Cup and Arena of Valor International Championship, alone, with the former standing as the most watched mobile esports competition in 2019 according to data firm Esports Charts.

Arena of Valor is a fast-paced MOBA that’s both accessible to first-time lane pushers and compelling in depth to top-tier competitors. Its intuitive interface allows mobile gamers to enjoy the thrill of strategic battles on the go across a range of match types without compromising the MOBA genre’s excitement and signature action.
