Mobile Legends players can log in to the game between 7th and 8th November and claim the game’s 100th hero Benedetta.

Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, developed and published by Shanghai Moonton Technology, was released for Android platforms on July 14, 2016, followed by an iOS release on November 9, 2016. Since 2016, the game has racked up a number of downloads. Today marks a significant milestone for Mobile Legends as the game surpassed 1 billion downloads. 

According to a Sensor Tower report from January, since 2016, Mobile Legends has accumulated 281.3 million downloads, with 212.1 million, or 75%, of those originating from Asia. The top country for downloads was Indonesia, racking up 100.1 million, or 36% of total unique installations. The Philippines ranked No.2 with 41.2 million downloads or 15%, while Vietnam ranked No.3 with 21.3 million installations or 8% of the total. It seems that the game has grown tremendously since then as it now crossed 1 billion downloads. 

As with the game’s revenue till January, Google Play also took the lion’s share of downloads, generating 250.7 million installs, or 89% of the total. The App Store, meanwhile, accumulated close to 30.5 million installs, or 11%. Mobile Legends’ success outside of China over rivals such as Honor of Kings can be put down, in part, to first-mover advantage. The game launched before Tencent’s title in key markets such as Malaysia, Indonesia, and the U.S., which now represent its top three regions.
