The battle takes place on a new playing field called Troi, where players can discover, according to Krafton, “how the universe has evolved.” There is room for 100 players and the publisher promises high-quality graphics and a stable and smooth gameplay experience. On Android, players need at least a device with Android 6.0 and 2.5GB of RAM.
