What is Mobile Legends: Bang Bang?

Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, a MOBA game developed and published for mobile devices by Moonton in 2016, reached 1 billion downloads as of October 2020, making it one of the first games that come to mind when MOBA is mentioned. Game developer Moonton was acquired by ByteDance’s video game unit Nuverse in March 2021.

Drawing attention with its similarity to League of Legends, Mobile Legends draws attention with both its successful graphics and gameplay. The most important feature that distinguishes the game from other mobile MOBA games is the heroes pool. The fact that there are dozens of heroes for each role, which is endless and for each role, offers the players a lot of different options.

Positions such as assassin, fighter, support, and shooter that you remember from LoL also exist in Mobile Legends. You start the adventure as soon as you load the game, which is played 5v5 against completely real opponents. You can also team up with your friends and fight together. Mobile Legends, which is completely free, also includes different packages to speed up your development.
