Based in the Witcher universe, CD PROJEKT RED‘s The Witcher Battle Arena is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA). In an effort to keep things fair and balanced, the developer has said that the game will have no pay to win elements.
Benjamin Lee, Producer for Mobile Games, CD PROJEKT RED sounds very excited about the project: “We are extremely passionate about games, whether they be for PC, console or mobile devices. The Witcher Battle Arena is our take on the MOBA genre and we are really excited at the prospect of sharing it with the gaming community! We highly value fans of The Witcher, and their opinions have always been paramount in helping us develop a great gaming experience–The Witcher Battle Arena is no exception!”
The Witcher Battle Arena is pretty exciting news for fans of the series, but if you have never played a Witcher game, this app still looks like it will be a quality MOBA. Check out the new trailer below.
Jason Citron is something of a Founding Father for the App Store when you think about it; what with the work on OpenFeint that popularized achievements on iOS and arguably resulted in Apple creating Game Center. He’s since founded a new company, Hammer & Chisel, and has begun work on a new Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) game made specifically for the iPad called Fates Forever. And this AAA vision has just received some major financial backing.
It was announced today that Hammer & Chisel has completed an $8.2 million funding round, with none other than Riot Games/League of Legends top investor Mitch Lasky doing his thing (investing lots of money) again. Lasky will also be joining Citron and Silicon Valley Alum Peter Relan on the development company’s board of directors. If ever there were a clear indication that Fates Forever will definitely be amazing, this is it.
