The title of this game, Elo Hell (google it) describes its current Early Access state accurately, and I’m not sure that there’s any indication pointing towards future progress. It’s both a new MOBA called Echo Star and a story-driven adventure about the rise of Echo Star and its professional players. There’s not much more to it in this early build, and with so little working content, Elo Hell can barely be called a game at this point.
As exciting as it is to venture through nature’s toughest terrains in a high-octane action-adventure title or exploring uncharted territories in open-world RPGs, nothing quite thrills like immersing yourself in a competitive multiplayer match. Win or lose, each round is a blood-pumper, and MOBAs have become the poster children of some of the most intense gaming sessions around.
These days, the multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) genre seems so crowded I often wonder if we’ve already reached a point of oversaturation, so I was skeptical that developer Sparkypants could bring anything new to the table. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see Dropzone introduce a unique take on the MOBA, and it’s shaping up as an exciting arena game with some strategy and progression elements added to the mix.
Smite is a Free-To-Play MOBA in which players choose their god, goddess or immortal and head into battle to slay their enemies. The game has a nice concept for a genre that’s seeing a lot of activity lately, and it’s going to need every advantage to compete with established names like League of Legends, DOTA2, and Heroes of The Storm.
From Epic PR:
Epic Games today released its free-to-play MOBA, Paragon, in free Open Beta for PC and PlayStation 4. Developed by the creators of Gears of War and Unreal Tournament, Paragon is a competitive 5v5 MOBA that combines the ferocity of third-person action with the deep strategic choice of a MOBA.
