Bigpoint announced yesterday that the Shards of War beta has begun. Simply register over on the official site and you can dive into the game right away.“Shards of War is the first game of a new generation of titles developed and produced by Bigpoint”, says Khaled Helioui, CEO of Bigpoint. “The team has leveraged classical elements from MOBAs and tailored the gameplay to provide a pace and intensity more common in shooters. The result has beaten all of our expectations and has surprised and engaged all of the MOBA and Shooter players who have tested it. I am already addicted and cannot wait for our players to enter the fray. I could not be prouder of the team.” Linda Doan, Producer for Shards of War added, “We are extremely proud and excited to be launching Shards of War and giving the gaming community a viable alternative to the traditional MOBA games that are already out there and proving to be phenomenally popular. As a massive MOBA fan myself, I think the Sci-fi setting, the faster and more intense battles, and the addition of WASD controls (which is a huge plus in my opinion), will give existing MOBA fans something to really sink their teeth into, as well as hopefully introducing MOBAs to a whole new gaming audience.” Key Features of Shards of War include: Traditional 5v5 MOBA gameplay Unique sci-Fi based setting Top down shooter controls (WASD) 10 unique playable characters, each with their own set of powerful skills Intense, action-packed 20 minute matches Item upgrades and crafting Loadout system Find out more about the game and register for beta now on the offcial site!
