Ronda Rousey New Playable Character in Popular Mobile Game

WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey has been announced as a playable Legendary Champion in the “RAID: Shadow Legends” video game.

Plarium, the developer of RAID: Shadow Legends announced today in a press release that Rousey, a noted gamer, is now her own Legendary Champion in the “RAID: Shadow Legends” fantasy RPG. Starting today through Tuesday February 28, Rousey will be available for free to all RAID players after 7 consecutive days of logging in to play.

Rousey will unveil her Champion during a Facebook Gaming stream in the coming weeks, where she will share her design influences, special skills, and move-sets.

“As someone who loves games with strong female leads, it’s exciting to actually become one,” Rousey said in a press release. “I look forward to sharing my champion with the RAID fans on my channel and helping them level up their game using her unique skill sets.”

The Rousey Legendary Champion will be usable in all game modes, including the single-player Campaign, Dungeons, The Arena, Faction Wars, Doom Tower, and Clan vs. Clan Tournaments.

After February 28, Rousey will no longer be available through the 7-day login program, but can be earned by new players only venturing into RAID during a special in-game event that runs until Monday, May 15. Players can also opt-in to receive in-game promo codes through February 28 that unlock Rousey-related rewards.

“We are thrilled to have one of the world’s most renowned athletes join the ranks of RAID’s Banner Lord Champions, a title she is already quite familiar with in her career,” said Plarium Vice President of Business Development Ronen Gross. “Her love of gaming and natural gifts in mixed martial arts, judo, and wrestling made this partnership a perfect fit. As expected, her Ronda Champion will mete out punishment with fiery gauntlet fists, similar to her real-life counterpart, and will be a valuable addition to any team.”

RAID Shadow Legends is available on Android, iOS, PC, iPadOS, and Mac for free.
