Arclight Rumble finally lets you control your own legion of Gnolls. Hogger fans, eat your heart out.

According to Associate Game Director Adam Kugler, WoW Arclight Rumble was inspired by tower defense games, but it will be what he called a “tower offense” game in the reveal stream.

Players will collect heroes (or villains) and send them in waves against opponents in PvE, PvP, raids, and a bunch of other modes as well.

You can play as one of five different factions: the Alliance, Horde, Blackrock Legions, the Undead, and beasts (made up of Murlocs, Gnolls, and other mobs from WoW).

So that’s everything we know about the new upcoming Warcraft mobile game: Arclight Rumble.
