Kabam announced that the servers for the mobile MOBA Marvel Realm of Champions will shut down on March 31, with the game having already been removed from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
Additionally, players are no longer be able to make in-app purchases. Existing players, however, will receive quite the send-off package before the game shuts down for good.
“When we started to develop Marvel Realm of Champions, we set out to create a fast-paced action RPG with competitive PVP battles, and the ability to customize your own Marvel Champions in the way that you want,” Kabam said in a statement. “Despite making multiple adjustments and changes along the way, we have not been able to meet the vision that we had initially set.”
Kabam is making the following adjustments to the game before March 31 to give existing players one last memorable experience:
- Unreleased Gear Sets and Weapons will be made available
- The number of Units given away will substantially increase
- Gear Crates and Crafting Crystals will cost fewer units
- Arena Conquest, Daily Missions, Solo Conquest, War Thor’s Crucible and Deathmatch game modes will be available until March 31
The plot of Marvel Realm of Champions revolved around who killed the Maestro, an evil version of the Hulk. The conclusion of the story will be revealed before the game shuts down. Additionally, new and existing players of another Kabam game, Marvel Contest of Champions, will receive an adjustment package based on their progress and investment in Realm of Champions.
Marvel Realm of Champions launched in December 2020 and featured new versions of existing characters such as Kali who is the Sorcerer Supreme from the Temple of Vishanti and Anathi from Wakanda, a female Black Panther.
