AFK Arena invites players to Draw ‘n’ Duel in the one-on-one War of Wits. With all levels thrown out, players must go toe-to-toe in a test of pure skill and cunning

February 8th, 2021 – Lilith Games is excited to announce the release of AFK Arena’s first real-time 1V1 event, “War of Wits”. This one-on-one mode strips players of their high-level heroes and thrusts them into battle against another player on a level playing field where only skill and knowledge determine the winner. During the War of Wits event, players can unlock the Celestial Hero, Talene, to add to their roster for free. 

War of Wits quickfire gameplay is a real test of a player’s skill as they have to build a squad of Heroes against the clock. Players take turns to draw from a shared pool of four cards made up from a possible 40 Heroes and 24 Relics. Choosing a Hero card adds that character to the player’s hand which is deployed in the War of Wits final combat phase. Heroes come from one of four factions with their own advantages and Relics can boost a player’s squad or hinder the opponent’s team. Whether players choose to strengthen their team or counter the opponent’s strategy for the final battle, the stakes are high as they try to climb the leaderboards and earn increasingly rich rewards. 

During this War of Wits event, players can unlock Celestial Hero Talene, the Rising Phoenix, by playing in 20 PVP matches before the 26th of February.  Talene is an agility-based support hero who can wield powerful flame-based attacks in battle. She is just one of AFK Arena’s incredible roster of heroes that blends unique, original characters with iconic crossovers. These include Ezio Auditore from Assassin’s Creed, Samurai Shodown’s Ukyo Tachibana, Overlord’s Ainz Ooal Gown and Albedo and most recently, PERSONA5’s JOKER and QUEEN

AFK Arena can be downloaded on Google Play and the App Store for free. Players new and old can test their strategies in the War of Wits event until February 26th. To keep up-to-date with the latest news, join the 1 million strong community on Facebook.
