Great news for western fans of the once-defunct MMOFPS Alliance of Valiant Arms (A.V.A.) as Bless developers, Neowiz, announce its return to western audiences via Steam. The ‘what-if’ future World War simulator, which pits a fictional Neo-Russian Federation (NRF) against the European Union (EU) in urban environments, was sorely missed upon the departure of original developer Red Duck back in 2018. But there was a glimmer of hope as the flagship title was acquired by Neowiz shortly after, and now the Korean developer has answered the call of its western fans.

FPS fans should feel right at home in the battlegrounds of A.V.A., featuring the standard PvP and team-based game modes we know and love, plus co-op missions and the ability to customise your soldier as you see fit. But if you’re an outside-the-box kind of player, there’s always the wealth of mods to help shake things up.


In addition to some gameplay upgrades to improve its usability for a global audience, the new caretakers of A.V.A. are promising the return of fan-favourite maps and mods following its release. But we can also look forward to experiencing some new features in the form of shiny new weapons and new characters as well as a slew of further mods that are reportedly in development.

According to its Steam page A.V.A. is slated for release on 31st March in the west and it will be free-to-play. So it’s only a few months before the western fanbase can once again throw down with some European superpowers and relive A.V.A’s heyday. is committed to bringing you all the freshest, funniest, and most insightful MMO news.
