It seems like everyone is making a MOBA these days. A MOBA is a multiplayer online battle arena game like League of Legends and DOTA. The genre is becoming very popular, but I’m not complaining. Bring them on! At Pax, I got to play Strife, an upcoming MOBA from S2 Games, and really enjoyed my experience. Strife will be S2’s second MOBA, their first being the very popular Heroes of Newerth. Obviously with a new game, S2 is changing things up! Most notably they will be implementing a karma system, shared gold instead of last hit gold, and there’s absolutely NO CHAT during the game! You will only be able to chat after the game is over. S2 Games aim is to make the Strife community less toxic and more inviting than other MOBA communities. I’m curious to see how this will all work out. I received 2 beta codes and Strife comic books for playing the game. The beta doesn’t open until later this year, but I’ve already registered and I have one more code and comic for you!
I don’t have very many followers to do a legit giveaway, so just leave a comment saying you want in. If I get more than one comment, I’ll pull your names out of a hat and announce the winner of the beta code/comic on September 24th. Sound good? Good! ^_^
Until then, enjoy this compilation of some Strife gameplay.
