5 New Warhammer 40k Games to Watch Out For: Page 4 of 5
4. Warhammer 40,000: Dark Nexus Arena
Geared up For War
Finally, developers have decided to release a MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) game that may be capable of overpowering both DOTA and League of Legends (kidding).
Gamers unfamiliar with this gameplay format need not worry; most MOBA based games are fairly easy to pick up but extremely difficult to master. Comparable to its Defense of the Ancients ancestor, Warhammer 40,000 dark nexus arena seems to employ the three lane tower based hero supported by minion’s gameplay. Heroes level by destroying minions, towers and opposing players. Upon leveling, players can select unique skills ultimately leading to one final extremely powerful skill only available every few minutes.
The gameplay trailer (Dark Nexus Arena) exhibits four (Stormboy, Fire warrior, Meganob and Assault Terminator) playable classes. Unlike its previously mentioned predecessors, the goals of the game are similar to that of a deathmatch. Each team seeks to achieve victory by acquiring 100 points. Players receive points by destroying NPC’s and of course other players.
Also, this game will employ a WASD movement mechanic which is drastically different from the typical click and movement gameplay of DOTA and league of legends. Abilities may be predominately skill shot based forgoing the common click to kill mechanic. This amazing skill based MOBA is set to release in Q2 of 2015 and with it will hopefully usher in a new standard for MOBA based gameplay.
