Pixel United and Plarium have just announced an upcoming limited animated series for their insanely popular mobile game, RAID: Shadow Legends.

The show delves into RAID’s core set of characters, with storylines deepening their narrative with cinematic-quality animation.
Call of the Arbiter will take place in Teleria, a world that seems to have been ignored by its gods. As a result, it is plagued by factions engaged in an endless war with each other. At the center of the story is an ancient guardian called Arbiter, straight from RAID: Shadow Legends. She is on a path to return to her world and will rally together a group of uncanny heroes on this journey.
The game has been created with a massive team of over 400 artists, including people from the original game. Pixel United has also roped in notable personalities to spearhead the series. The CEO of Rollman Entertainment and former President of Marvel Television and Animation, Eric Rollman has been appointed as the producer, while Jay Oliva will be the showrunner.
