Today, Aniplex USA announced that the free-to-play mobile game Fate/Grand Order has now reached five million downloads for the English version and will host a milestone celebration featuring log-in bonuses and gifts starting January 30. In addition to the news, the company will hold the Fate/Grand Order USA Tour 2019 this year beginning in Los Angeles, with more stops to be announced.
The English version of the hit mobile game, Fate/Grand Order has surpassed 5 million downloads since its release in June of 2017. Initially released in the U.S. and Canada, the global sensation has since expanded to be available in Australia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, and Vietnam on the Apple App Store and Google Play. Fate/Grand Order is currently available in over ten regions and five languages after overwhelming demand from fans across the globe.
The response in North America has been so strong that the mobile game will be kicking off its own special Fate/Grand Order U.S.A. Tour 2019 this year, beginning in Los Angeles, California and featuring special guests and never-before-seen exhibits. The mobile game also received critical acclaim with an Award for excellence in the “Games of the Year” category at the Japan Game Awards 2018 organized by the Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association (CESA) this past September. In a press release by the Japan Game Awards, the association cites the game’s overwhelming support from its users as well as its excellence in providing “a vast worldview, strategic battles that require use of skills and Command Cards, a variety of unique characters with a cast of distinguished voice actors, all in a free-to-play title” among the reasons for their decision.
To celebrate this milestone of 5 million downloads, Fate/Grand Order has embarked on a “5 Million Downloads Campaign” featuring an array of gifts and rewards for players beginning January 30, 2019. Rewards include daily log-in bonuses, increased success rates for Servant and Craft Essence enhancements, and the return of the acquisition quest of the Royal Brand Mystic Code. The celebratory campaign also marks the return of the limited time ★5 (SSR) Caster-class Servant, Leonardo da Vinci, as character players can enjoy an increased chance to summon the limited-time Servant to their teams. This is the first chance players have had to summon Chaldea’s own universal genius since her original (and until now only) appearance during Fate/Grand Order’s First Year Anniversary event, held in July of 2018.
