“We are excited to be the first publisher to bring 40-person raids to
mobile with Crusaders of Light," said Riten Huang, North American
General Manager for NetEase Games, the world’s third highest grossing
mobile games publisher in 2016, according to App Annie. "Considering
NetEase's experience with MMORPGs and our long-held love for the genre,

and execute epic dungeon raids and coordinate arena battles of up to
40v40 to level up and unlock even more loot and adventures. Players can
