Order & Chaos Online makes $1m in 20 days
Gameloft's subscription-based App Store MMO plans new updates
Mobile publisher Gameloft has announced that massively multiplayer online game Order & Chaos Online has generated $1 million in revenues in just 20 days, after being released for iPhone and iPad.
Heavily inspired by World of Warcraft, the game requires an initial download fee similar to other Gameloft titles and then a subscription to continue play - available in one month ($0.99), three month ($1.99) and six month ($2.99) renewal packages.
"We knew that this first real MMORPG experience for iPhone and iPad would meet the quality standards our customers want," said Gonzague de Vallois, senior vice-president of publishing for Gameloft.
"We are pleased to know that our customers have embraced our innovative business model, and we are anxious to further enrich the gaming experience with this first update, which is eagerly anticipated by our fans."
Gameloft is planning a number of expansions for the game, beginning this June. The first will include new quests, a dedicated chat channel for each supported language, and a server migration service.
Subsequent updates will add new dungeons and dedicated PvP (Player vs Player) arenas.
