Crytek is at it again, this time with a new multiplayer online game for PC which they have entitled Arena of Fate. Players will be able to pit both historial AND fantasy figures against one another in heated 5 vs. 5 battles, employing battle traits which are unique to each hero's lore. For example: Bring Frankenstein back from the dead, chop with Jack the Ripper's cleavers, and even ride cannonballs with Baron Münchhausen.
“Imagine Joan of Arc and Robin Hood cooperating to hunt down Little Red Riding Hood – Wouldn’t that be terrific? But besides the game's iconic heroes, which everyone in the team really loves, we are also challenging ourselves to carefully craft a streamlined player experience that allows for both greater accessibility, and rich, deep, action-packed gameplay.
We are very excited to meet the first wave of players in the arena this summer, and will be listening carefully to the feedback we receive and making the community's contribution a key part of our efforts to perfect the fun.”
-- Managing Director of Crytek Black Sea and Game Director of Arena of Fate, Vesselin Handjiev
Early Access Beta will begin this summer -- players can sign up at the official site when it opens to the public for a chance to join the fray. E3 attendees, however, will get first dibs as we'll be seeing the game playable for the first time this year in Los Angeles.
We at Curse will definitely be there, checking out Arena of Fate and everything else the show has to offer! Stay tuned as we uncover more details. What kinds of characters are you looking forward to seeing? Let us know in the comments below.
