About Arena of Valor

Arena of Valor (AoV) is a 5v5 MOBA game adapted from the Honor of Kings game from China. It is developed by TiMi Studios and published by Tencent Games, the owner of Riot Games. Players need to be connected online and create their AoV accounts in order to play the game. This is a standard for all MOBAs.




While AoV employs the same gameplay with that of other MOBAs, it puts more focus on teamplay and strategy. Players need to coordinate with one another to come up with the most balanced team based on their roles. A typical 5-man AoV squad has one Marksman, one Support, an Assassin or Jungler, a Mid Laner that is typically a Mage, and a Warrior or Tank that acts as the frontliner.

AoV is Free-to-Play, but it has in-game items that can be purchased with in-game currency or real money. These items range from playable Heroes to Arcana, and skins that players can equip their heroes to amplify their abilities or customize their look during battles.

AoV also has a competitive Esports scene called the Valor Cup. Players from around the world compete for the AoV championship and prize money during this event. And if you are keen to join, start playing AoV now!
