Former Riot developer brings MOBAs to iOS

We’re not sure how many of you guys have actually thought that wouldn’t it be cool if you had a MOBA that you could play on your phone? Given that most MOBAs tend to be rather drawn out affairs and requires a lot of scrolling around on the screen, a phone really doesn’t seem to be the best place for it. That being said, developers Super Evil Megacorp begs to differ and come later this month, the company’s MOBA for iOS devices Vainglory will be made available for download. Super Evil Megacorp’s team comprises of developers from Riot, Blizzard, and Rockstar, so safe to say that they have a lot of experience.

Thought you were safe from the MOBA craze just because you prefer to game on mobile devices? Think again: developer Super Evil Megacorp is bringing their MOBA, Vainglory, to iOS devices this month. Vainglory simplifies the typical MOBA formula by reducing team size to three (instead of the more common five) and limiting matches to 20 minutes long (not unlike the Crytek MOBA Arena of Fate). There’s also only one lane to push against, and the game’s controls are based around the touchscreen interface. For more information, there’s a basic overview video after the break. Those living in Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand can already download the game for free, while Europe will gain access on November 13. The North America, South America, Middle East and Africa App Stores will get their versions on November 18. China, Japan and Korea have no announced release date. No matter where you live, you’ll need an iPad 2 or later or, if you’re playing on your phone, an iPhone 5S or later.
