Crytek has announced Arena of Fate, an action-packed free-to-play fantasy-based online multiplayer game for PC and consoles.
“Step into the shoes of legendary heroes from history and fantasy and lock horns in Arena of Fate”
The game features fast-paced 5 vs. 5 battles, it expands Crytek’s range of Games-as-a-Service, and it will be playable for the first time at E3 2014.
It offers players to choose from a huge roster of famous characters before engaging in star-studded skirmishes with fresh gameplay twists.
“Among the iconic figures in Arena of Fate are the likes of Frankenstein, Jack the Ripper and Baron Münchhausen.
Tap into their famed traits in battle as you bring Frankenstein back from the dead, use Jack’s cleavers to gruesome effect, and launch across the map on Baron Münchhausen’s cannonball!”
Managing Director of Crytek Black Sea and Game Director of Arena of Fate, Vesselin Handjiev, said: “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.”
