But your robot alone won’t lead you to victory – it takes close-knit team play and quick reflexes to succeed in the arena.
Tales spread of far off isles with mysteries waiting to be discovered. Rulers will need all the strength of their subjects to sail away and find new kingdoms in these New Lands.
