GrandChase is a fantasy and real-time strategy RPG boasting up to 70 unique heroes to choose from and is a sequel to the original PC game with the same name which was enjoyed by over 20 million people. The game’s graphics alone truly make it stand out from other RPGs, and the storyline is as complex as it is enticing. Let’s take an in-depth look at the beautifully intricate storyline, characters and how you can download GrandChase APK for Android in a few easy steps.

GrandChase is about a classic struggle between darkness and light. It takes place in the Kingdom of Kounat, a magical civilization founded by three Goddesses that would thrive for 1000 years. Soon darkness falls upon the kingdom thanks to demonic forces, and Kounat is no more. The GrandChase was formed after the collapse of Kounat to capture Kaze’aze, the one responsible for the Kingdom War.

Instead of controlling a single character like the PC version, players control a squad of 4 heroes, each of which has 2 unique abilities. Squads are fully customizable by mixing and matching characters from 5 archetypes and upgrading and evolving them.

GrandChase has a whole bunch of well-developed characters based on archetypes that couldn’t be more mythical:
