Prepare to step into the shoes of history’s most notable and notorious characters as Crytek’s Arena of Fate enters Closed Beta today.
Featuring fast and furious multiplayer action, Arena of Fate invites players to battle it out in 5 vs. 5 matches as they master the unique traits of famous figures such as Sherlock Holmes, Nikola Tesla, Cleopatra, and many more.
Matches in Arena of Fate are inspired by the competitive spirit and last-ditch drama of real sports, adding a unique twist to the MOBA genre as players fight to claim victory before a 20-minute time limit ticks away. Every point is precious, and the final score will be determined by each team’s ability to work in harmony as they unleash the distinctive skills of their heroes.
The game also includes a club system that paves the way for ongoing league challenges, tournaments, and enhanced matchmaking and social features.
Crytek’s Vesselin Handjiev, Managing Director of Crytek Black Sea, said: “As die-hard MOBA enthusiasts, our team has worked hard to create a truly original experience for players. We can’t wait to see how the game is received during Closed Beta testing, and will put all the feedback we receive to good use as we further refine Arena of Fate ahead of its launch.”
Players who want to be among the first to try Arena of Fate in its Closed Beta form can do so at this year’s gamescom expo in Cologne from 6-9 August. The game will be playable at booth C-040 in Hall 7.1 of the Cologne Exhibition Center’s Entertainment Area.
