Dungeon Hunter 5 lands on Windows and Windows Phone as a universal app

Though it's a day later than originally announced, the latest iteration of the insanely popular Dungeon Hunter series brings players a brand new multiplayer mode and a new evolution system for gear.

Here's a rundown of what you can expect from Dungeon Hunter 5:

  • Embark on a Single-Player Campaign through 5 Realms and countless dungeons!
  • Hire your friends or other players as Allies to help you on your journey of vengeance!
  • Craft your own gear with no restrictions: Fuse and evolve up to 46 armors and 150 weapons!
  • Five elements to master for a power advantage against the enemies of the depths!
  • Unrivalled hack 'n' slash action and revamped animations and controls for the most amazing moves!
  • DH5 offers AAA graphics and intricate details to bring the game and story to life.

As far as story is concerned, Dungeon Hunter 5 plants players in a world shattered by the demon invasion of the previous game. Players will slash their way through dungeons as a bounty hunter, seeking revenge and cleaning up a broken world along the way.

If you want to give the game a shot, you can hit up the store links below to grab the game for free on both Windows Phone and Windows 8.1. If you're curious to see our initial impressions of the game, we got some pre-release hands-on time with it during PAX South in February.

Thanks to everyone who sent in tips!

  • Downloading
  • No Xbox Live? A little bit disappointed. :(
  • Played for 10 minutes loved the gameplay and graphics
  • How much space do I need to install it??
  • Like 1gb
  • No that's the download size. I'm asking how much I need to install. Like asphalt takes 2gb space to install
  • Just double the download size = the size required to install
  • Just finished downloading and played until 3 level ups, taking 1.77GB on my 930... I'd recommend you to free at least 2.5GB before downloading.
  • All ur comments making me excited. Downloading now...
  • Does this have cross platform multiplayer support?
  • Most likely no. Gameloft has said that they put iOS, Android and Windows Phone players on separate servers for all of their games.
  • Cross platform with Windows 8
  • No Xbox live, no download for me.
  • lol
  • What a noob
  • Ryan from Gasmeloft told us they plan to release games on all platformsa simultaneously (or at least attempt) then add xbox live support in an update later on (like Asphalt 8)
  • ^^ Yup! Thanks for posting this (:
  • Seriously man?
  • Be sure to let the developers know that via #SaveXboxWP. Details here.
  • Hey Alfred! Sorry that you're disappointed DH5 doesn't have XBL.  The Dev team is definitely keeping an eye out on feedback like this and we have the ability to add it in a future update, so it's not ruled out for good!
  • No update for Windows Pc for ages....please....begging you release an update!!!!! We still have the Kenkashi event and it is boring now because there hasnt been an update in forever. Please fix this.
  • Plz...need an update real quick...get the kenkashi shit out of the game and give us good updates as a Windows PC player. THX...
  • Make the update soon....get the Kenkashi bullshit out of the way and give us updates...GOOD ONE THAT DONT LAST FOR 1000 YEARS. (On Windows Pc)
  • We need 9 mm, clash of clans, WWE immortals , injustice god among us etc now we are not that far.. Ohhhh.... Maybe it just a dream.... Dreams do come true...
  • Agreed at least Clash of Clans ss universal app they can do.
  • We already have cloud raiders and even better Age of empires and now dungeon hunter 5 why the fuck every one even care for clash of clans when we have got age of empires its just like wanna cry for Acer when you have option for taking Alienware
  • I'll give you a thumb up :)
  • Clash of clans is better than AoE Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • You mean ACER better than ALIENWARE??? LOL
  • I play both COC & AOE. Guess what , AOE 10x better.
  • I prefer Castle Clash.
  • I like CoC better then AoE. I downloaded BlueStacks, an Android Emulator, for my Surface Pro 2 so I can play CoC with friends and family. It works flawlessly.
  • AoE is a pain in the ass. How many times a day login failed?
  • I know that feel! :P
    The "Failed to connect to the server..." error ruins your mood of gaming even if you've a good WiFi connection. Total Conquest on the other hand has better server but then, the game is glitchy as hell. I max upgraded my whole kingdom in one week. Uninstalled the game in the next week.
  • We'll get there eventually.
  • Were have AOE. and no one else does
  • Plants vs zombies 2?? It released for android & ios 2 yrs ago!
  • Yes offcourse atleast they can give android app support.
  • My friends and my office colleagues have been playing COC. I don't feel the pressure though.
  • Shut their mouth with age of empires
  • Contact wb games for wwe immortals,injustice.i have contacted them about these games.if we all contact them maybe they will release these games at somepoint in the future. https://www.facebook.com/wbgames?fref=nf message them on fb email them at WBGames.IntSupport@warnerbros.com  meanwhile join for arkham underworld beta test www.arkhamunderworld.com/sign-up-for-beta/
  • Clash of clans is shit. Because they didnt port it to windows phones. Plus i came to hate the graphics when i see other people playing. I wont even try it now if it comes to windows phones. Already playing cloud raiders.
  • cloud raiders has a little graphic advantage both over AOE and COC.
  • Actually, CoC has much better graphics than AoE. At least on HD displays. AoE looks blurred on a 930 or 1520, more like a pixelated gif image than a game.
    But yeah, Cloud Raiders has got good graphics, same for Total Conquest.
  • Woohoo... DH4 was cool. Hope DH5 would be super cool...
  • Am already playing, and enjoyed the gameplay so far!
  • Downloading!!
  • DOWNLOADING IT!!!
  • Ha! Finally!
  • Always not support 512 mb ram
  • Right, I can even play Crysis 3 on my 512MB PC, why can't this game run on 512MB phones?
  • What the!!!!! Crysis 3 on 512 MB RAM PC!!!
  • I think I forgot to add "/sarcastic".
  • Dude fuck you!! I was literally annoyed by this!
  • Dude, why so serious? Just a harmless piece of sarcasm. I'm surprised that there was someone who thought that I was serious.
  • Lol I don't know if it could actually be installed in it but I thought it might be possible so...
  • Lack of sense of humor, Zekrominfinity?
  • I am less used to playing games on PC and consoles and usually do in my phone so I didn't know that it was a joke!! Lol but to see that logically the computer must have exploded if it would have done that.
  • He burnt his PC with Crysis 3 lol /s
  • Dude, i'm playing on Nokia Lumia 525
  • That moment when you realize you need to change your phone ...
  • &1 mr-c (1520&830 :-)
  • Haha..I feel you broh.
    Grabbed an 830...no more looking at 512mb support banner. Just download it.
  • +830.
    I love this new phone of mine! 830 is awesome!
  • No waiting for my slow work wifi to download. *sigh*
  • So, W8 universal games have to be recompiled for W10 universal games❓❓ Or is it so universal that no recompiling is necessary❓❓
  • Not necessary.
  • Really?
  • Was really hoping for that Xbox support...
  • Let them know that then. Check out the #SaveXboxWP movement here.
  • It's possible we could add it with a future update!  We are aiming on getting games out across all platforms on the same date.  Microsoft works with us to help add XBL features in down the road and it is awesome that they give us this flexibility (:
  • Will Dungeon Hunter 5 be coming for 512 MB RAM Lumias
  • Downloading now. The first game I have that may take advantage of the Snapdragon 800 in my 930
  • Mine too
  • 1520 is coming too
  • It will be removed or lose the support in months.. *sigh*
  • Don't be optimistic
  • You mean "pessimistic", don't you?
  • ///sarcasm./// ;)
  • OffTopic: There is an update on my 920, Indonesia. :)
    Installing now.
  • Hope it's denim...
  • I already have denim on my L630
  • No xbox-live no download
  • Keep that for yourself.
  • He has a right to express himself and find like-minded others.
  • Why? What's so advantageous about that, its just achievement score increase that's all otherwise you can always sync your data on Gameloft live and they want you to use it.
  • I wondering what's the big deal with xbox live... It's already super great when it had already come to window phone platform
  • This thread (link here) explains the benefits of Xbox Live integration.
  • How much space do I need??
  • Roughly 1.5-2x the size of the download.
  • Means I need to have atlesst 4gb free space??
  • It will take 1.59 GB for installation and 1.97 GB is the free space needed in your Lumia....k
  • Right, so it's available for WP but not for ARM based Windows tablets!!!
  • Wtf.... pissed
  • hahaha if Dungeon Hunter 4 taught me something it was: do not never update the game... it'll crash soon or later and you won't get support nor answers about it. Att: Experience
  • Please for windows phone
  • Not availible for Windows 10? :(  
  • #Universal #App
  • No RT support? Won't install on my Surface
  • Not support 512 of ram
  • Having problems downloading this game.
  • Does it supports sync between different platforms? I have been playing on Nexus 7 and I hope I can continue on my 1520?
  • Can't install on my 1520 keeps telling me to reinstall....
  • Mine is stuck on installing...
  • Try manual install lime me
  • How do you do that?
  • What it wont support for 512mb devices :-0
  • If gta vice city come on wp platform it will great.
  • Yes please gta vice city
  • Noooooooooo!!!! I waited for it soooo long and it has to be 1GB RAM at least, why gameloft:'(
  • Wait future updates
  • Till then I will lag behind other players!!!
  • Just change to a new Lumia ans it's quite cheap
  • Wait until no one play the game n gameloft will update to 512 mb ram
    Because 512 mb ram is a bad phone for wp i hate my phone lumia 720
  • I like Lumia 720 cuz its sexy and slim and plus the camera button are the reasons for which I don't buy and new phone. Only if it had 1GB ram it would be awesome
  • Lumia 720 is one of the best phones of its time. I agree. After all, I have it too. XD But I just got 830. It's a lovely phone too. Yeah, 1gb ram... So am gonna download this game now! :)
  • If you really need this game, either install it on PC, or just buy Lumia 435. Is so cheap and has 1gb ram! :)
  • No 512ram devices :( wait...now I have a 1gb ram device!
  • lol I said that when I had, now I say I have 2gb
  • I got 2gb too :)
  • Now playing
  • Can the multiplayer works between platform?
  • i was thinking also...
  • Again 512mb ram device not support!!!! To play game I like android phone. Android 512mb ram devices always work all games....
    android release 512mb ram phones and supply all big games to support 512mb ram devices.
    microsoft release wp but why not release games for 512mb ram windows phone....
  • See the -be points of it that games hang so much on Android and sometimes get corrupted. In ios they have fix same ram for every phone and in windows it is still a growing platform where there is going to be at least two year struggle to make it a perfect and better OS as it needs time and ideas for developers.
  • Only some Samsung's 512mb ram phones those games hanging otherwise all other android phone work properly
  • Then buy an Android phone or a higher end Lumia. You get what you pay for. SMH
  • You can get a brand new 535 for like 125$.....if you don't like the RAM restriction on your 520, upgrade, not like its expensive
  • Now I am using Lumia 620. Its work smoothly with compare L535. only ram problem in my l620 And I wait for Microsoft brand Lumia 740.
    so in this stage I have a 512mb ram Lumia 620.
  • 740's gonna take a long long time my friend.
  • I am already gonna buy a 1020 and 1520 because of a good camera and a big screen but only after I complete my exams!!
  • +830.
  • Xbox version please
  • Hell Yeah! Cross Platform baby!
  • So does this game have story mode or its just like royal revolt 2??
  • Oh crap and I still have my math's board exams and then computers finally on 27 I will be able to download and play anyways
  • Can it play where you left in game accoss pc to phone or vice-versa.. Oh wait.. I have 512RAM device.. Nevermind.. LOL..
  • Buy a new Lumia...problem solved
  • If you have no money, buy 435. ;) 1gb ram.
  • I want to see the graphics difference between windows phone and androids, because gameloft always gives us the medium graphics and high graphics on androids, even they did I with asphalt 8, the special effects are missing on windows phones, and they are available on androids, isn't the beast of windows phones Lumia 1520 capable of that special effects. I wont compare with IOS because apple pays gameloft to give the metal graphics and stuff.
  • Lags like shit on my 1020 in battle so idk
  • This is how bad they've kept the performance? Lazy greedy gameloft windows developers huh.
  • I have an idea, let's all complain when the most graphically demanding mobile game out there lags on 2 yr old + hardware. It's like complaining that a PC have won't run on max settings on a 5 year old pc
  • same here, keep crashing on my 1020
  • Downloading right now , been waiting for it forever
  • It works with  XBOX360 Controller // PC 
  • Downloading... 930mb???
  • NOOOOOOOO... No love for us 512 ram owners :C
  • Damn no 512mb ram phones support
  • It is a wonderful game. Beautiful and loads of fun, most Android users can't launch the game and are awaiting a hot fix. I'm happy so far with the launch day results. Game runs smooth, 1520 gets a little warm, that or I'm gripping the device so hard from the awesome in game action. Spent about $325 so far on micro transactions...
  • Omg are you nuts or a millionaire?
  • He is probably a millionaire who is nuts about this game.
  • ALWAYS FADES TO BLACK AFTER EVERY MISSION AND GETS STUCK (ABOUT 30% OF THE TIME) NO PROGRESS EARNED AND ENERGY ALREADY SPENT :'( -1520
  • Bump ;-;
  • Plz.. Make for 512mb ram devices!!
  • it'll ruin user experience on high end devices. come on, upgrade if you want to play games.
  • Does anyone here encounter the crush at Stronghold?
    It keeps crushing when loading, and i can't play it, on both Windows and Windows Phone version.
    Anyone knows the sulotion, or is it a bug?
  • no dude, working fine, just little lag while playing 
  • I wonder what is wrong with mine. I reinstall it, but still got the same problem. Hopeless.
  • dude.. first  delete your temp files and then try to install .. To delete your temp files use storage sense after  deleting temp restart your cell phone, then try to install it will work.
  • Ok, thx. I'll try it.
  • The game is great on 1520 while android users seem to have restarting problems :D
  • Did you tried comparing the graphics with an android device? Because there is graphics difference in Asphalt 8 on wp and android even if phones have same specification.
  • Well I have only seen videos of android gameplay, right now I can't differentiate them but I'll watch some more.
  • Cannot find it in windows store US
  • This was supposed to come out on my birthday =( but at least its out now.
  • Amazing but no way to continue progression on other devices...
  • Sadly I can't enjoy, currently living off the mobile 4 series Intel chipset and by now most modern 3D games are not fully compatible with this old outdated GPU.
  • Me to :( Emachines E525 RIP ;-;
  • Not working for my Surface II RT :-/
  • Amazing on the 1520 Even better on my Lenovo yoga 11s
  • Universal app? Where is the icon of universal app !!
  • H
  • The one in the app icon looks more like an conner from the Assassin's creed 3
  • XD but I think would be great Xbox Live support, but what Windows Central could tell us about...?
  • Does this have Xbox support for Windows PC?
     
  • Been playing this for a few days on my iPad Air 2. Pretty awesome game so far!
  • Awesome game. Fantastic graphics.. I really love this game....
  • will this be available for 512mb :/
  • nope   
  • It's awesome guys bit laggy though on my 1320
  • fail to instal it on my lumia 1320 :( maybe because its instaling on SD card... Any thoughts about it? How to solve it
  • Downloading
