TEL AVIV, Israel and NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Plarium, a global leader in developing F2P mobile and PC games with more than 450 million registered gamers worldwide, today announced it will collaborate with Universal Games and Digital Platforms to bring Xena from Xena: Warrior Princess to the acclaimed dark fantasy collection RPG RAID: Shadow Legends as its newest Legendary Champion. Now through February 4, 2024, players can obtain the famed warrior from the popular historical fantasy TV series through the new Champion Pass feature.
Champion Pass allows players to complete Daily Quests and earn exclusive Champion-specific rewards that change over time. Xena: Warrior Princess is the debut installment of Champion Pass, which includes the Basic version available to all players for free, and the paid Elite version with an additional layer of higher-tier in-game rewards.
“We are thrilled to debut our new Champion Pass feature with the Xena Legendary Champion,” said Ronen Gross, VP of business development at Plarium. “One of the biggest drivers of RAID’s long-term success is our comprehensive cast of unique Champions, and we are delighted to introduce this new feature that centers on this aspect of our game. As fans of her character might expect, the Xena Champion is heavily inspired by her appearance in the show and her skills focus on ignoring enemy defenses and dealing massive damage.”
The new Legendary Champion is available as the final reward of the Elite Champion Pass, which also includes other Xena: Warrior Princess in-game items and rewards that players can use to upgrade their Champion once she joins the players’ collection. The Elite Champion Pass must be purchased on or before January 5, 2024, after which players can only summon Xena from Ancient, Primal, and Sacred Shards during time-limited events until February 4, 2024.
