“We are delighted to focus on gaming and entertainment as it represents our brand DNA. It’s a great honor for Honor to support this prestigious gaming event for our fans, the millennials and digital natives.

In a way both these brands cater “For the Brave”,” mentioned Chris Sun Baigong, VP of honor in MEA region.

Besides，Revenge of Sultans was remaining the #1 app on the Top Grossing Charts for Saudi Arabia for more than one year, and was awarded the App Store Top Grossing Best Games, Best Game of the Year in Google Play, and GameLook Overseas Markets Breakthrough Awards.
