Crytek Announces New MOBA Called Arena of Fate
Ryse: Son of Rome developer Crytek has unveiled its next project, Arena of Fate.
Arena of Fate appears to be a crossover MOBA featuring characters from both historical and fantasy sources. The game will focus on 5-on-5 battles consisting of many famous characters, including Robin Hood, Little Red Riding Hood and Frankenstein.
Crytek Black Sea managing director and Arena of Fate game director spoke on the studio’s behalf regarding its plans with the game and its beta that will launch in the summer.
“Imagine Joan of Arc and Robin Hood cooperating to hunt down Little Red Riding Hood – 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.”
Crytek has confirmed that Arena of Fate will be playable at E3 this year and players can sign up for the game’s beta through the game’s official site.
The game will be available on PC and “consoles,” but there is no explicit confirmation as to what consoles Crytek is referring to.
