The fighting game series that started in 2008 has come a long way since then and turned into a massive franchise consisting of spin-offs, anime, manga, novels, and more.

The game service was announced back in 2017 but was initially launched in February 2021. It had a great run after the launch, but the staff had to shut it down to ensure quality service to its fans in the future.

So far, more than a million people have played the game, which is impressive considering the game was launched just this year.

It became popular due to the various gear offered in the gameplay and the immaculate graphics quality. No matter what phone you played it on, great quality visuals were guaranteed.

Regarding the special paid items from the game, the franchisee will be providing a refund to all those who made in-app purchases.

The sale of in-game items ended on November 30, 2021, and the refund procedure will go on from February 1, 2022, to May 2, 2022.

I am definitely going to miss Alternative Darkwar a lot, but I am sure the franchise has much more exciting stuff planned for us.

Maybe we’ll get another spin-off? Or an anime? Who knows.
