DC Comics and Warner Bros. Interactive recently announced their brand new free-to-play PC MOBA Infinite Crisis, which is being developed by Turbine. Taking inspiration from the DC Comic arc of the same name is sure to prove as an interesting basis for the next gen MOBA experience.
Infinite Crisis is looking to deliver a non-stop competitive player vs. player battle experience by utilizing the DC Comics universe. In order to provide fans with a more diverse cast of characters Turbine decided to set the game within the expansive DC Multiverse. The heroes and villains you love have been completely reimagined. Players can expect to play as Nightmare Batman, Gaslight Catwoman, Gaslight Joker and more.
Here’s what the Executive Producer for Turbine, Jeffrey Steefel, had to say about taking the DC Universe into the MOBA genre:
“The Turbine team is very excited to reveal Infinite Crisis to the world and extend the MOBA genre with new features. We are utilizing years of experience in the online game space to deliver innovations to the MOBA genre with a game that features fast-paced action, a major story arc, destructible environments, catastrophic events and a deep roster of iconic DC Comics characters.”
The early footage of the game is appears to be a rough build of what Turbine is hoping to achieve with the final product.
