Finnish game studio Direlight announces that their hack-'em-up action RPG adventure Grimvalor is out now in Open Beta / Early Access on the Google Play store.

First released for iOS in October 2018, the highly anticipated Android version of this critically acclaimed mobile game is finally here! As the TouchArcade Game of the Year 2018 runner-up, the winner of Reddit r/iOSGaming community vote (for GotY), and a worldwide average rating of 4.9/5.0 on the iOS App Store, Grimvalor is the title many Android gamers have been waiting for.

Grimvalor is a 2.5D action platformer with deep and versatile combat and a mysterious dark kingdom to explore. Thanks to polished touch screen controls and extensive support for game controllers, playing a character action game on mobile has never been so much fun!

"Graphically Grimvalor was designed more like a console game, so it is quite performance intensive," says Direlight's Ville Mäkynen. "We wanted to make it run smoothly on as many Android phones and tablets as possible, which has been quite challenging, but I'm happy with what we have achieved in the past few months."

The game supports the vast majority of Android devices released in the recent years. The Open Beta is planned to last for around 4 to 5 weeks to ensure the best possible experience for the full launch in June.

Grimvalor is free to download on Google Play and the first act, with 1-2+ hours of gameplay, can be played without any cost. The full premium game with all five acts can be unlocked with a one-time in-app purchase of $6.99 (US Dollars). There are no other microtransactions in the game.
