Fate/Grand Order is a tactical turn-based role-playing game that challenges players to become Masters and summon powerful allies or Heroic Spirits, who are based on historical figures such as King Arthur, William Shakespeare, Hercules, and Joan of Arc. The free-to-play mobile game takes players back through history to embark on an epic quest known as Grand Order.Tweet
