Massive multiplayer shooters like Fortnite have become all the rage, as mobile gamers duke it out in long, protracted battles that can often be as excruciating as they are thrilling. If you're yearning for a more fast-paced shooter on iOS, Nitro Games has you covered, and has soft-launched Heroes of Warland for further tweaking. Of course, you can try the game yourself right now with a tiny hack.
Hearkening back to the days of Team Fortress, Heroes of Warland is a hero-based first person shooter that emphasizes quick, 4-on-4 matches on smaller maps to ensure you're always in the thick of intense combat. There are four hero classes to choose from, ranging from assault-based heroes that are balanced fighters all around, to more specialized snipers that have lower health but pack a more lethal punch.
Featuring intuitive controls and excellent graphics, Heroes of Warland is sure to suck you right into hours of endless gameplay on your iPhone as you strive to climb up the leaderboards. And as a newly-released title, the game is sure to roll out with more goodies and content as it's ironed out ahead of its official release.
Because of its soft-launch status, you can't officially play Heroes of Warland unless you live in Finland. That said, there's a simple way to download and play the game right now, so if you'd like to experience Heroes of Warland firsthand before anyone else stateside, we'll show you how below.
To Play Heroes of Warland, you'll need to have an iPhone or iPad that's running iOS 8 or above. As mentioned, the game is only available in Finland, so you'll need to create an Apple ID that's based there before you can install it.
Thankfully, creating an App Store login for another country is a simple process — simply sign up for a new Apple ID using a valid email account and a realistic home address based in Finland. From there, sign into the spoofed account on your iOS device. If you'd like a more detailed walkthrough on this topic, feel free to check out our tutorial at the link below.
After successfully setting up a Finnish App Store account, the rest of the process will work exactly the same way as installing any game or app. So open your App Store app and search for Heroes of Warland to download it, or simply tap on the link from your iOS device.
Bear in mind that as a soft-launched game, Heroes of Warland is technically still in development and far from a finished product, so you might run into some bugs while playing. However, we tested the game on an iPhone SE and iPhone 8 that were on iOS 11.2.1 and 11.4.1, respectively, and encountered little to no issues. How's the game working on your end?
