Crytek, the studio best known for games like Crysis and Ryse: Son of Rome, has announced a multiplayer online battle arena game for PC and consoles. Arena of Fate is being developed by Crytek Black Sea (formerly Black Sea Studios), the developer that previously worked on games such as Knights of Honor and Worldshift.
Classic characters, fictional and historical, are placed in an arena against one another in a game similar to other MOBAs like League of Legends and Dota 2.
“Imagine Joan of Arc and Robin Hood cooperating to hunt down Little Red Riding Hood,” managing director of Crytek Black Sea and game director of Arena of Fate Vesselin Handjiev stated. “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.”
Arena of Fate will arrive with an early access beta on PC this summer.
