EA really are bringing out the big guns this week, with the revelation the publisher is working on a new multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game, named Dawngate. Whether or not the announcement was meant to happen is unknown, with the game’s website mysteriously appearing overnight.
Dawngate is a new MOBA, built from the ground up to look and feel familiar while offering a whole new way to experience MOBA gameplay. Dawngate empowers you to forge the champions you love for the roles you want in a competitive arena, shaped by ever-evolving, community-driven content and story.
Obviously, we don’t know much about Dawngate at this stage. It’s in the works at Waystone Games, who describe themselves as a bunch of “sincere students of games” setting out to mark “a road worth travelling”.
We’re still waiting for an official Dawngate reveal – potentially next month? – and more details. It’s unknown yet whether the game will join the already-crowded free-to-play MOBA market (dominated by both Dota 2 and League of Legends), or try something new.
