Chinese developer Hotta Studios is currently cooking up an open-world action RPG titled Tower of Fantasy. As the game is developed in Unreal Engine, this action title is expected to be beautiful even on older mobile phones and tablets. Here's what we know about this game; from the Tower of Fantasy release date to how the game is expected to play.
First and foremost, we'll just put it out there that Tower of Fantasy is going to be compared to Genshin Impact a lot as it carves out its niche. Before that monolith hit its height, though, it was shot down for taking clear inspiration from Breath of the Wild. This one, at least, looks to be taking a little from sci-fi RPGs like Xenoblade, Phantasy Star, and Star Ocean as well.
While the game isn't out yet, there are plenty of other hits to try out. Read up on our Genshin Impact tier list and AFK Arena tier list for some gacha goodness, or our YuGiOh Master Duel deck tier list for some more traditional card gaming fun.

The upcoming beta appears to be limited to mobile platforms at this time, but that's likely down to the team looking to test the game on a wide range of handsets. Genshin Impact followed a similar approach in its own beta days. Unlike that game, however, a console version of Tower of Fantasy does not appear to be on the cards at this stage.
Tower of Fantasy gameplay - is it an MMO?
Tower of Fantasy is an open-world action RPG where players can explore a large world and play as unique characters to fight enemies in the field. Players have access to all available weapons for every character and has futuristic vehicles to help players travel around. Take a look at some of the gameplay on the trailer above.

For what it's worth, Tower of Fantasy is an MMORPG in very light terms. It featured a global chat and you see other players wandering around as you play.
And that's about all there is to say about the Tower of Fantasy release date right now. It's still a ways off, and while you can find footage all over YouTube, most Chinese games go through quite a few changes in their path to a worldwide release.
We're working on getting a bunch of helpful guides up for the eventual release, but until then, check out our Honkai Impact codes or Punishing Gray Raven codes lists. Both can get you neat little boosts in some similar games until then.
