Robin Hood, Tesla, Joan of Arc, Little Red Riding Hood, etc. duke it out in the new Crytek-powered game.
Today, Crytek unveiled its 5 vs 5 arena fighter (MOBA), 'Arena of Fate.' The PC game includes a large roster of famous characters from the pages of history and fiction. "Among the iconic figures in Arena of Fate are the likes of Frankenstein, Jack the Ripper and Baron Münchhausen. Tap into their famed traits in battle as you bring Frankenstein back from the dead, use Jack's cleavers to gruesome effect, and launch across the map on Baron Münchhausen's cannonball!"
Crytek's Sofia Studio (formerly Black Sea) has been developing 'Arena of Fate' for years and is nearly ready for a public beta release. The game will be playable at Crytek's booth at E3, but those interested should register for the beta.
From Managing Director of Crytek Black Sea and Game Director of Arena of Fate, Vesselin Handjiev, "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."
