Crytek working on a new MOBA for PC and consoles.
Crytek has announced Arena of Fate, a MOBA that lets players play as iconic characters from history and fantasy.
The game is a fast-paced 5 vs. 5 affair featuring the likes of Frankenstein, Robin Hood, Baron Münchhausen, Jack the Ripper, Joan of Arc, Little Red Riding Hood, Nikola Tesla and Fenrir.
“Imagine Joan of Arc and Robin Hood cooperating to hunt down Little Red Riding Hood,” said Game Director Vesselin Handjiev. “Wouldn’t that be terrific? But besides the game’s iconic heroes, which everyone in the team really loves, we are also challenging ourselves to carefully craft a streamlined player experience that allows for both greater accessibility, and rich, deep, action-packed gameplay. We are very excited to meet the first wave of players in the arena this summer, and will be listening carefully to the feedback we receive and making the community’s contribution a key part of our efforts to perfect the fun.”
Arena of Fate is being developed by Crytek Black Sea, makers of RTS titles such as Knights of Honor and WorldShift.
The game is expected to enter Early Access Beta on PC this summer. You can head over to the game’s official website to sign up for the beta and find out more.
Crytek has yet to reveal the launch platforms and release dates for the console versions of the game.
