ZeptoLab to Crown World’s Best Thief with King of Thieves Update
20 Million Players of Popular Multiplayer Mobile Title Can Now Compete with Each Other in Challenging New League System
Sept. 24, 2015 – ZeptoLab®, the global entertainment company behind the world-famous Cut the Rope® franchise, today released an update with a new competitive format for its popular mobile multiplayer game King of Thieves, which has attracted more than 20 million gamers since launch in February. The update adds a new ranking system, which will allow the game's best thieves to compete across persistent leaderboards for the distinguished King of Kings title, crowning the best thief in the world.
Honor, glory and oodles of rewards await the player who can claim their throne as the one true king. Can you rise to the occasion?

"The new and improved King of Thieves will offer our most talented and competitive players a new, more tailored midcore gaming experience," said Misha Lyalin, CEO of ZeptoLab. "While the first iterations of the game had many social and competitive elements, like Guild Wars, where players joined together to beat other guilds, we quickly saw that the community wanted even more opportunities to steal from each other and compete to be the best. Our new league update gives them exactly what they want: increased challenges and the opportunity to steal their way to even bigger rewards."
With more than 2,700 PvP attacks already being performed in the game every minute, today's updates will encourage even more multiplayer mayhem as players compete for the King of Kings title and big prizes. The new ranking system includes four phases: three initial Gods League phases, and the final King of Kings League phase. Similarly to the game's current structure, players who increase the value of the gems they collect are promoted to the next stages, while a new feature will demote players with the worst results. Finally, the King of Kings League will unite the world's best players to face each other in a single competition for the title of King of Kings – crowning one winner the best King of Thieves player in the world.
The time is now. The stakes are high. How far will you advance in the new King of Thieves?
