2 million are pre-registered for Honor of Kings’ MENA launch

Ahead of its regional launch later this month, Honor of Kings has already crossed 2 million pre-registrations from eager players in Türkiye, the Middle East, North Africa, Eastern Europe, and South Asia.

The world’s most-played MOBA, with some 100 million daily players, will come to those territories on February 21.

By reaching the 2 million milestone, TiMi Studios is giving all pre-registered players 5,000 gold in the game; if the numbers reach 3 million, players will get to try all the game’s hero characters for 14 days.

This is the second phased release before the game goes global later this year. The free-to-play mobile game has been a hit in China for years, before it made Brazil its first overseas market in 2023.

Esports fans can look forward to the Intercontinental Invitational next month in Istanbul, which comes with a US$300,000 prize pot. The competition kicks off with the group stage on March 2, with the quarterfinals commencing on March 7, before the semis on March 9 and the finale on March 10.
