Clash of Kings dethrones top-grossing gaming apps Clash of Clans and Game of War

Downloaded over 50 million times worldwide over the past year

Clash of Kings has finally snatched Russian No.1 top grossing spots on App Store and Google Play from both Clash of Clans and Game of War.

Clash of Kings was launched on the Google Play 12 months ago and brought the game onto the App Store nearly 7 months back. Since then the franchise has been downloaded over 50 million times worldwide.

Compared with Clash of Clans and Game of War, Clash of Kings ranks highly on the top grossing charts (1st on both App Store and Google Play) with a low rank on the 'top free charts' (128th on App Store and 135th on Google Play). It is evident that there are a smaller number of total users but they are demonstrating a much higher-than-average ARPU.

The 'top grossing apps' sections of the App Store and Google Play feature the current leading apps in terms of revenue intake, effectively tracking customer purchases in real time. Though Clash of Kings is available as a free download, players can purchase optional in-game perks using real cash, driving its quick rise in the store rankings.
