Stormfall is one of the massively popular franchises with several highly popular titles. However, the competition in this particular gaming genre is very tough, forcing their creators to invest in massive marketing campaigns. This sometimes requires hiring a celebrity to promote a specific title, as we’ve seen numerous times by now.

Stormfall has turned to Megan Fox for help, as it was announced by Plarium, the development company behind this title. The actress, known for her roles in Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, will use her face and voice for the studio’s online RPG called Stormfall: Rise of Balur.

Megan Fox is hired to play a character named Amelia Delthanis, the Captain of the High Council Guard.

According to Plarium, Amelia is a fierce character with strong-willed demeanor. She is one of the mentors and guides in Stormfall, which currently has 7.5 million registered users. The company has already planned a series of updates, which will bring a new tutorial and a fully voiced campaign.

The famous actress already claimed that she is a big gamer. While growing up, she played Super Nintendo and was highly interested in the Xbox, once it came out. Some of her favorite titles are Halo and Uncharted. This is the first time Fox found her way into lending her voice to a video game.

This is certainly not the first time a celebrity was used to promote a video game. For example, Elijah Wood gave his voice for his most famous role: Frodo has found its way to multiple titles within The Lord of the Rings franchise. Ellen Page played Jodie Holmes, who is a protagonist in Beyond Two Souls. Samuel L. Jackson played Officer Tenpenny in San Andreas, and even received several roles for this job.

Rise of Balur comes after several titles and after the company decided to join the race against other iOS and Android developers. The original title was released on social networks, while its successor was online-only, available as a web browser game. This means that Stormfall is new to mobile, even though this title has been around for about six years now.

In order to become competitive against numerous other RPG titles, this game decided to incorporate a very important social aspect. In Rise of Balur, players can create Leagues in order to accumulate bigger power and to control the most of territory.

It could be said that this is a real-time strategy without the combat, which is a very strange combination. However, because of its social aspect, this game has a large political element, which is what has attracted millions of players.

Still, the core of this game is not that different from dozens of similar games out there. You still need to build mines and farms to collect resources in order to build an army. Once you build strong armies, you can raid and defeat your enemies.

Stormfall: Rise of Balur is a free-to-play game, available on all major platforms. In case you would like to see Megan Fox as Amelia, download this title from the App Store.
