Ex-Riot Games Developers Bring Vainglory MOBA to iOS
Henry Reeve / 5 years ago
If you thought the only time you’d be playing MOBAs was when you were at you desktop, and that moving around in the car, train, plane, couch or toilet were safe from your addictions to MOBAs… think again.
Super Evil Megacorp, a bunch of ex-developers from Riot Games, Blizzard and Rockstar have formed their superpowers together for this new studio, with their first game being a MOBA named Vainglory. Vainglory will be hitting iOS devices later this month, and uses the typical MOBA formula by shrinking the team size down to three – versus the usual five – and limiting the matches to just 20 minutes.
There’s only one lane to concentrate on, and the game’s controls are done through your iOS-powered touchscreen. For those living in Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Vainglory is free. Europeans will have to wait until November 13 to get their hands on this new MOBA, with North America, South America, the Middle East and Africa receiving it on November 18.
China, Japan and Korea currently have no release date – which is strange, as those markets would be huge for this game. You’ll require an iPad 2 or higher if you want to get in on the Vainglory action, or an iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, or iPhone 6 Plus to play it.
