Prepare to step into the shoes of history’s most notable and notorious characters as Crytek’s Arena of Fate enters it’s Closed Beta phase. To mark this occasion, Crytek has also released a brand new trailer that shows off some of the legendary characters starring in the game and whets the appetite for the intense gameplay on tap.
Arena of Fate features fast and furious multiplayer action, inviting players to battle it out in 5 vs. 5 matches as they master the unique traits of famous figures such as Sherlock Holmes, Nikola Tesla, Cleopatra, Frankenstein, Jack the Ripper, Baron Münchhausen, and many more… Just in case you’re wondering what sort of unique character abilities you’ll get to unleash in battle; bring Frankenstein back from the dead, use Jack’s cleavers to gruesome effect, and launch across the map on Baron Münchhausen’s cannonball! How’s that for unique?
Matches in Arena of Fate are inspired by the competitive spirit and last-ditch drama of real sports, adding a unique twist to the MOBA genre as players fight to claim victory before a 20-minute time limit ticks away. Every point is precious, and the final score will be determined by each team’s ability to work in harmony as they unleash the distinctive skills of their heroes.
The game also includes a club system that paves the way for ongoing league challenges, tournaments, and enhanced matchmaking and social features.
Crytek’s Vesselin Handjiev, Managing Director of Crytek Black Sea, said: “As die-hard MOBA enthusiasts, our team has worked hard to create a truly original experience for players. We can’t wait to see how the game is received during Closed Beta testing, and will put all the feedback we receive to good use as we further refine Arena of Fate ahead of its launch.”
Players who want to be among the first to try Arena of Fate in its Closed Beta form can do so at this year’s gamescom expo in Cologne from 6-9 August. The game will be playable at booth C-040 in Hall 7.1 of the Cologne Exhibition Center’s Entertainment Area.
