The Most Anticipated Top 10 Mobile Games of 2024 Rating

The world of mobile gaming has evolved far beyond the simple days of Snake and matching three candies in a row. This sector is not only thriving but constantly surprising us with new projects, sometimes even outperforming the revenue of iconic AAA games from major studios. There's no need to look far for an example – Genshin Impact has earned so much that it probably still haunts the minds of Electronic Arts executives. What mobile games will astonish us in 2024? We present to you the ranking of the most anticipated top 10 mobile games for 2024 in this captivating world.

1 - Zenless Zone Zero

Genre: Action
Developer: HoYoverse (miHoYo)
Release Date: 2024

This is an entirely new gaming experience set in a post-apocalyptic world. The game offers an engaging narrative portrayed in a futuristic artistic style, unique characters, and an exhilarating action-oriented combat system. Players will take on the role of "Proxy" and embark on an exciting adventure with a diverse group of allies to defeat mysterious enemies and unravel the mysteries in the New Era – the last refuge of civilization.

The modern world has been destroyed by the forces of a supernatural disaster known as the "Voids." These phenomena spread in a geometric progression, creating chaos in dimensions where enigmatic creatures known as the "Voidless" roam.

Zenless Zone Zero is a thrilling action game in the style of Honkai Impact 3rd. The result is a dynamic, colorful, and stylish urban environment with appealing heroes. It's worth delaying the payment of electricity bills just to pull a new hero in the next "gacha.

2 - Building & Fighter

Genre: Fighting
Developer: Nexon
Release Date: 2024

An exciting blend of Pokemon Go and fighting, where the player's area of operation is determined right from the start. This area is under the control of a special gang (which, we hope, exists only in the virtual world), and your task is to defeat it by recruiting a multitude of unique heroes. The game even features a model with a massive machine gun. Battles with gangs will start in small areas, then move to the city, and eventually encompass the entire country. A captivating storyline awaits you, and a true fireworks display of colors on the screen, as this is not just a fighting game – characters actively and enthusiastically use firearms.

3 - Ashfall

Genre: Survival
Developer: NetEase
Release Date: Third quarter of 2024

Ashfall takes a glimpse into the distant future where artificial intelligence has gone out of control, leading to a global catastrophe involving nuclear weapons and the destruction of the entire planet. The main character, one of the survivors, is tasked with finding the mysterious Core of Creation — the key to humanity's salvation.

In practice, it's a typical mobile action and survival game, immersing players in the atmosphere of a post-apocalyptic world. Players create their characters and set out to explore the fascinating world that remains on its last legs. Various missions must be completed, bases constructed, and everything needed for survival in this new world must be undertaken.

4 - Path of Exile Mobile

Genre: Hack'n'slash
Developer: Grinding Gear Games
Release Date: 2024

If Blizzard could do it, why not Grinding Gear Games? The developers of the main Diablo clone announced the mobile version back in 2019, but since then, there has been very little news. Suddenly, the game came to life at the ExileCon 2023 event, where some interesting details were revealed.

Path of Exile Mobile will serve as a prequel to the original game, offering six character classes, a plethora of skill gems, and an engaging map traversal system. The zone that can be "vacuumed" promises to have only six portals — after which it will be sealed forever.

To be honest, a 2024 release seems overly optimistic, considering that developers are currently busy working on Path of Exile 2. But there's no harm in dreaming, right?

5 - Sword Fantasy

Developer: Efun Company
Release Date: 2024

An epic multiplayer RPG with a classic approach. Players can choose from seven classes, customize their magnificent characters, and embark on an exciting journey through fantastically beautiful (especially by mobile standards) locations. Pressing buttons, participants will swing swords and other deadly weapons, summon captivating steampunk mechs, and, of course, engage in PvP. And these are not just battles; they are extremely large-scale – developers promise epic battles in a 700 vs. 700 format!

6 - Valorant Mobile

Genre: Shooter
Developer: Riot Games
Release Date: 2024

The mobile version of the popular team-based shooter is gearing up to fill your work breaks. With Aim Assist, it's easier to handle enemies, plant Spikes, and win rounds. Soon, instead of slacking off from boss tasks, you can immerse yourself in the world of exciting battles.

It's challenging to add something new to this description because Valorant became a kind of "Counter-Strike 2" long before the actual "Counter-Strike 2" was born.

7 - Dark and Light Mobile

Developer: Snail Games USA
Release Date: 2024 (iOS), available on Android

A classic MMORPG where you can chop down trees, craft your equipment, and battle bears in the forest. Built on Unreal Engine 4, the game holds significant potential, which, according to players, hasn't been fully realized yet. The reason lies in its PC release back in 2017, but it's still in early access on Steam. Unfortunately, recent reviews don't inspire optimism, as they are mostly negative. Gamers appreciate the hardcore MMO approach, but they criticize developers for trying to do everything at once without enough attention to fixing existing issues. We hope the mobile version avoids the fate of its PC counterpart.

8 - Girls' Frontline 2: Exilium

Genre: War Chess, Shooter
Developer: Sunborn
Release Date: 2024

Girl's Frontline 2: Exilium is a mobile 3D RPG strategy in the style of War Chess (similar to X-Com), created by the Sunborn Network studio. The events unfold in 2070 in Eastern Europe, continuing the story of the original Girl's Frontline. Players have the opportunity to assemble their team of battle waifus and participate in tactical battles. New videos from the developers showcase improved graphics and gameplay. The game will be free with in-app purchases. Additional information about the plot and other aspects of the game is yet to be revealed.

Beautiful anime-style characters armed with powerful weapons from the "Griffin and Kryuger" PMC (this is not a joke) enter the battlefield. What more could one wish for?

9 - Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link

Genre: RPG
Developer: Square Enix
Release Date: 2024

An innovative mobile action RPG with role-playing elements from Square Enix, promising to change your perception of mobile games in this genre. The storyline transports players from Kingdom Hearts 3 to the real world, quite literally. Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link introduces AR elements, sometimes requiring players to step out of their homes to complete specific tasks. However, the developers claim that it's not a mandatory condition, as the game can be played in standalone mode.

10 - Arknights Endfield

Genre: RPG
Release Date: 2024

In an era where mobile games are immersed in gacha projects like Genshin Impact with its beautiful waifus, Arknights Endfield stands out. It's like a product from miHoYo but in a slightly darker stylistic tone. Here, the player assembles a squad of four brave fighters who, notably, follow alongside, unlike the "4 in 1" approach seen in Genshin Impact. Otherwise, it features standard elements: exploring the world, dynamic real-time battles, and puzzle-solving.
