EA’s MOBA Dawngate enters open beta9 Apr 2014
Everyone wants a slice of the MOBA action these days and EA has been beavering creating Dawngate, their own take on the genre with developer Waystone Games. The free to play MOBA has just entered open beta so everyone can join the action from today.
“We wanted Dawngate to look and feel like a true MOBA experience, but add something fresh and new to the core design by offering a flexible Meta to gameplay,” said Dave Cerra, Lead Producer on Dawngate. “We feel that giving players the freedom to tailor each Shaper’s role to their own personal play style makes a powerful impact in the overall experience and sets Dawngate apart.”
To take part all you need to do is head here, register an account and download the client. In case you missed any news on the Dawngate (we kind of forgot about it as well until today) this is how Waystone describe the game.
Dawngate is a multiplayer online battle arena game that features fast-paced team combat and a flexible Meta that lets gamers play their way. With the freedom to choose a role that isn’t dependent on the player’s choice of Shaper, Dawngate expands its Meta by celebrating personal play styles. Featuring two teams of five Shapers, two lanes and a huge jungle, the game also introduces unique economy-based objectives like Spirit Wells to create a new strategic landscape. Each match ends with an intense fight against the enemy team and their Guardian, and gives players the chance to earn Blessings from their allies and foes. Blessings are loot drops that reward how well gamers played, and commends them for teamwork and sportsmanship.
We’ll probably be getting our MOBA expert Tim to take a look and pass on his impressions in the coming days.
