Since the beginning of March, news of new Cookie Run games have propagated, with in-depth information only given recently. We were provided with only images the size of preview images on YouTube, with insufficient canonical data on what the game will be about, allowing players to speculate on the true story behind it. On August 11, 2017, our perception of those games changed. Well, the first game of the line-up that is.
Cookie Run: Cookie Wars (tentative name), developed by Devsisters in collaboration with Nple, integrates strategy, RPG, and defense mechanics to produce a rich gaming experience set as an extension of the current Cookie Run world located in the previous two games, Cookie Run: Ovenbreak and LINE/Kakao Cookie Run. Think of it as a spin-off of the existing games. Announced as Cookie Run: Defense in a meeting in March, it will be the first of the many collaborative works arranged by Devsisters to be released. Sounds familiar? The CookieRunner has previously published an article on several upcoming games provided by Devsisters back in that same month.
The story: infected comets have invaded the Cookie Run world and mutated several Cookies into zombies, and the remaining unaffected Cookies must retaliate them while protecting their supply of jelly. As displayed in the picture above, recognizable Cookies like Angel Cookie, Ninja Cookie, and Zombie Cookie are part of the many affected Cookies, while Cookies such as Hero Cookie, Werewolf Cookie, and Fairy Cookie must fight back against those zombies. They even get new costumes as well!
Earlier, I mentioned that guild wars and single-player mode would be implemented into Cookie Run: Ovenbreak. Actually, I was partially wrong. Not only will the new defense game feature guild raids, but also it will feature PvP mode, a basic game system, story-based stages, and the so-called special dungeons. Devsisters expects that the new game will target both previous Cookie Run fans as well as RPG/strategy games.
As of this writing, it is currently undergoing internal testing with the user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) and battle balancing to create a fair gameplay experience, and will be released sometime in the fourth quarter of this year.
This does not mean Cookie Run: Ovenbreak is left out! It will also feature a grand update that will leave players longing for more. That will be published very soon.
