According to Tencent Games India GM Aneesh Aravind, “If you are a fervent Football fan then AOV’s Football Fever, is going to leave you in a fever pitch. The best part—you can celebrate the World Cup by playing with your favorite heroes in quick four minute matches. We are very excited about this new game mode and am sure that our AOV fans in India will enjoy these world cup themed matches alongside their AOV heroes on a football field.” Football Fever combines football and MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) and creates an all-new gameplay suited for both MOBA and football enthusiasts. The game mode also features a unique set of skills, exclusive to this mode. All set to launch on 5 July, this update will also be introducing a new hero, Tulen in the game along with a new football fever themed skin.
