League of Legends: Dominion announced4 Aug 2011
Riot Games are set to expand League of Legends with Dominion.
Dominion will bring a brand-new capture-and-hold game mode to the popular online title and this latest update to the game will be shown at Gamescom for the first time.
Features in the Dominion release will include:
Capture-and-hold gameplay:Summoners battle it out for control of five unique strategic targets, capturing points from the opposing team and defending them against enemy intrusion.
An all-new map: The action in Dominion takes place in the Crystal Scar, a highly contested, war-torn mining village featuring stunning new art crafted specifically for the new map.
Fast-paced action:Dominion is an accelerated version of classic League of Legends gameplay – matches last around 20 minutes, so gamers can enjoy a rapid-fire alternative to the more strategic, measured pace of Summoner’s Rift.
Non-stop combat: From beginning to end, players will enjoy unrelenting skirmishes as they vie for control over the map – in Dominion, Summoners can expect an onslaught of one-on-one and small team fights.
Down-to-the-wire victories: Matches of Dominion are competitive until the very end – late-game comebacks are possible and the outcome is always in question.
Completely free: Like classic League of Legends, Dominion is completely free-to-play for new and veteran Summoners alike. Players will be able to use all their existing masteries, runes, champions and skins on Dominion.
