The shoot was filled with anecdotes and fun moments available here, in this behind-the-scenes clip.
“We are very honored to have been named a Silver Winner of the prestigious Clio Awards thanks to the excellent work of the production team of the latest King of Avalon trailer”, said Chris Petrovic, Chief Business Officer at FunPlus. “This award is especially meaningful after learning that many new players have enjoyed playing as Orlando The Nightshard on the battlefield, proof of a successful collaboration and the first of many exciting integrations landing in King of Avalon”.
Last July, Orlando Bloom arrived in King of Avalon with a blockbuster storyline, enjoyed by more than 4 million players during the summer and that now is part of the lore of the medieval strategy game. Orlando left behind his iconic bow to take the Nightshard Blade forged with Dragon’s blood to lead the locals of Avalon to victory in a thrilling story that was part of the biggest update of the game until date, “Frost & Flame”, where players could experience a brand-new game mode Tower Defense and a new unique American-comic art style in-game.
