Edit: The Vainglory Android Beta has evolved, please see this blog post to learn how to get into the Android Beta: here.
When will Vainglory come to Android? It’s perhaps the single most-asked question from the Vainglory Community since the game launched three months ago. We heard you, and we’re excited to announce our first steps toward making Vainglory on Android devices a reality.
We’re starting with a closed beta program designed to get your feedback on how Vainglory for Android plays on your device. Throughout and following this beta, we will refine the experience until the Android VG Community tells us we’re ready for prime time. This won’t be overnight, and we know we still have quite a bit of work ahead. You won’t see Vainglory on Google Play until our bar for quality and gameplay has been met.
To get into the closed beta and be among the first to play Vainglory on Android apply now through the application at the end of this post.
The closed beta will support a limited number of high-end devices, including the NVIDIA SHIELD and select Samsung and Nexus devices. We will be adding more devices through the process of readying Vainglory for Android release.
The first look at the Vainglory Android beta version will come at PAX East March 6-8. We will be running Vainglory on NVIDIA SHIELDs at our massive display area inside the Twitch booth as well as playing with Android devices on our special PAX livestreams! Visit our full Android livestream & events schedule for more information and exact broadcast times.
We are grateful to be working so closely with the NVIDIA team to create the best possible Vainglory gameplay experience, and their feedback and help is accelerating our development.
“Super Evil Megacorp is bringing stunning visuals and exciting gameplay to Android with Vainglory,” says Keita Iida, Senior Director, Global Content Management at NVIDIA. “SHIELD tablet is the ultimate tablet for gaming and Vainglory is a great example of how amazing games are coming to mobile devices.”
We can’t wait to expand to the Android platform and welcome new players to the Halcyon Fold! When we do launch, players on iOS devices and Android devices will be able to play in the same matches, meaning even better allies, more competition and seamless play with your friends — regardless of their platform preference.
Apply for the beta here, or if the form doesn't show, click here.
Stay tuned for more updates. We will keep you posted!
