Crytek revealed their latest game today, Arena of Fate. Described as featuring “fast-paced 5 vs. 5 battles,” Arena of Fate should look familiar to fans of DOTA 2 and League of Legends, and features famous characters from horror and fantasy stories of the past, such as Frankenstein, Baron Münchhausen, and Jack the Ripper. Each character will, of course, have a move-set specific to their history, such as Jack the Ripper’s cleavers or Baron Münchhausen’s cannon.
Game Director, Vesselin Handjiev, had this to say:
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.
An Early Access beta is expected to begin this Summer, and interested players can sign up for the beta here.
