Tower of Fantasy is now available for pre-download ahead of tomorrow’s release date. The upcoming anime MMORPG releases globally on August 10, and will unlock for players at 8 PM ET. That’s the equivalent of midnight UTC.
According to the statistics listed on the game’s official website, over four million users have pre-registered to play Tower of Fantasy. That number includes both players on PC and all compatible mobile devices. Its popularity isn’t too surprising, though, as it has drawn comparisons to Genshin Impact. Despite launching back in 2020, Genshin Impact is still one of the most prevalent games on the market.
If you’re interested, you’ll want to head over to the global site for Tower of Fantasy. On the home page, there’s an option to pre-download Tower of Fantasy on either Windows, the App Store, or Google Play. Selecting Windows will download the MMORPG’s launcher where you can register, log in, and then download the game.
You’ll need a total of 25 GB of free storage space to download it. While the download itself is under 22 GB, the extra space is reserved for future content. Given that some modern games can take up over 200 GB of space, this is a nice change. Tower of Fantasy is free to play, so there are no mandatory additional costs to try it out. Given that it’s a Genshin Impact-inspired gacha game, though, you can likely expect plenty of microtransactions.
What to expect
When Tower of Fantasy arrives, players should have plenty to do. Developer Hotta Studio promises to deliver an immersive open-world experience with unique characters and epic combat. There’s a lot of pressure to deliver, with expectations being as high as they are, but the promotional material we’ve seen so far looks encouraging. Hopefully, Tower of Fantasy delivers and offers some real competition.
