Lilith Games today announced that popular YouTuber Markiplier and his dog Chica will become NPCs in the game.
As of today, players will be able to run into Mark Fischbach – more commonly known as Markiplier – in the Noble Tavern where he's taken up residence as the barkeeper. Fischbach has had both his likeness and voice added to AFK Arena where he will be on hand to help players summon new Heroes.
The tavern was previously run by the tavern owner's daughter, Dolly. But the YouTube star has stepped in to give her a break. Alongside appearing in the game, Fischbach has also created a promotional video for the game which you can watch here:
Talking about his new collaboration with AFK Arena, Markiplier said: “When AFK Arena approached me for a partnership, I downloaded the game to see if it was fun and a good fit... the game has since consumed my life. It's literally the first thing I check when I wake up. This is not a joke. Please help."
Whether you're already a regular player of AFK Arena or are thinking about giving it a try, free stuff in the game is always good. So currently if you enter the code 'BestRPG4BusyU' you will be able to claim yourself 500,000 Gold and 500 Diamonds.
