A free to play experience

Dead Island: Epidemic Co-Op Impressions

When Dead Island: Epidemic was announced, many scoffed at the change in genre for the franchise. Deep Silver, looking to capitalize on the free to play market, have created a game that blends their series with MOBAs and to some degree, action RPGs. To our surprise there's also a dedicated co-op horde mode built into the game for four players. As these impressions are based on early beta versions of the game, a lot of this could change, but there's a good base here to get an idea what Deep Silver has planned.

Solstice Arena Aims to Stuff a Full MOBA into Your Phone

After getting acquired by Zynga in the fall of 2012, development studio A Bit Lucky has finally unveiled its next project. Solstice Arena aims to bring the fast-paced combat found in the multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) genre to phones and tablets, all without sacrificing gameplay depth or graphics quality. Battles will be three on three and feature full online support, because six people using one phone just isn't fun.

These two new guardians have different ways of controlling the fight

New Guardians of Middle-Earth Trailer Reveals Legolas and the Witch-King

We've been impressed so far by what we've seen from Guardians of Middle-Earth, the upcoming action MOBA for consoles. As some of you may know, one of the biggest draw to these types of games is the different characters and how they vary in playstyle from each other. Monolith is certainly aware of this, as they've been doing a series of videos showcasing heroes, breaking down each of their skills. Gollum, Gandalf, Galadriel, and Uglúk have all been presented in previous such videos

Awesomenauts Patch in the Works to Bring More Awesome to Your "Nauts"

Everyone's favorite* MOBA for the consoles, Awesomenauts, is getting an update to help ensure the game is well and truly balanced for all. Tweaks like this are quite common for a game within this genre, or really games as a whole. After all, any game that involves mutliple characters with various skills may not be quite perfect enough at launch as players will always find ways of using (and exploiting) skills and abilities that developers may not have anticipated during development. Awesomenauts is no exception to this as the bulk of changes being made are just these types of tweaks.

Awesomenauts Co-Op Review
