The San Francisco-based free-to-play mobile game developer Kabam secured a $ 120 million investment from Chinese Internet company Alibaba, Kabam has announced.

Kabam will also enter into a “strategic collaboration” with Alibaba, which will publish Kabam’s mobile games in China across Alibaba Group’s mobile applications, introducing it to a huge (and potentially hugely profitable) new audience.

Kabam makes its own original games like Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North, and Dragons of Atlantis: Heirs of the Dragon, as well games based on popular movie franchises like The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth and Fast & Furious 6: The Game.

“Truly successful games companies have to be globally successful,” Kabam’s CEO Kevin Chou said. “This strategic collaboration with Alibaba provides Kabam the resources, infrastructure and distribution to help bring our current and future durable franchise games to China and elsewhere in Asia and make an immediate impact.”

Existing investors in Kabam include Google Ventures, Warner Bros., MGM, Intel, Canaan Partners, Redpoint Ventures, Pinnacle Ventures and others.

Kabam didn’t disclose the terms of the investment, but said that the company is now valued at $ 1 billion.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Monolith Productions today released a new trailer for this fall’s Lord of the Rings game, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.

The first in a series of videos detailing the game’s features and story, today’s trailer showcases how players can upgrade main character Talion’s various abilities. Specifically, it touches on the weapons Talion uses and the Runes system for upgrading and improving them.

As explained in the video you see above, Runes are buffs that Talion can use to bolster the effectiveness of his weapons. They are dropped when enemy captains are sent to their death. You can even combine different Runes to improve Talion’s weapons in unique ways.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor launches on October 7, a date that also sees the release of BioWare’s Dragon Age: Inquisition, Driveclub, and Alien: Isolation. Earlier today, Warner Bros. announced various retailer-specific preorder bonuses for the game.

Monolith says Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is definitely not a “movie game,” but entirely original. For more on the game, which is coming to Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC, check out GameSpot’s previous coverage.
