Call this “the week of MOBAs”, Bigpoint has decided to add its next title called Merc Elite to the growing pile of new MOBA oriented games set to come out soon. So what exactly does Merc Elite bring to the battle arena? To start, the game is set in the near future and has players assuming control of an ex-military mercenary whose been hired by a group of evil conglomerates hell bent on controlling what few natural resources are left in the world.

Not too many details regarding the game’s actual mechanics are known right now. The official website mentions players will be able to choose from five customizable classes such as the Heavy Gunner which sets up massive weapons from a distance in order to provide a barrage of cover fire and damage from afar, or the Tactician who tracks enemy movements and implements high-tech weaponry while calling in airstrikes on enemy locations. Merc Elite is said to feature directional cover mechanics and direct fire shooting, whatever that means.

Players can expect gameplay to revolve around the standard MOBA team size of five versus five, with Domination as the primary game mode where teams fight for control of the most flags.

Like all Bigpoint games, the Unity powered Merc Elite will be browser based. Players can sign up for the closed beta now on the game’s official site here.

  1. Age of Wushu looks pretty 1-trick-pony to me and i am also pretty sure that I saw that last year on the gamescom but in prettier … and never heard of it afterwards.
    Mercelite on the other hand actually looks like it will be fun and not some monotonous button-masher, because be honest, AoW will probably be not a lot more than 1on1 who-clicks-fastest…

  2. The worst thing is the developer hasn’t been aware of it. If you take a look at Age of Wushu, you will see some new gameplay system.

  3. This game far more interesting than I thought. So does Age of Wushu. The stunning scenes with special effects are vert eye-catching. Huge world map is also interesting.

  4. Reminds me of warface in browser .Did you notice these companies are launching mmofpses together ? Warface,Tactical Intervention,Soldier Front 2,Merc Elite. Well these are going to replace the older ones I am sure. Lets see . Warface is awesome. I need to wait to get hold of other three titles.

  5. ugh. Dont we have enough Moba games already? LoL,Dota,smite, and the other like 15 mobas no one cares about. Really, its enough. Stop it. Come up with something new, or atleast another genre. Im so sick and tired of mobas.its always the same. same map, same skills, same items. Just another look,thats it.
    2years. i give this genre 2 years bevor it will go down and thats very gentle from my perspective. More and more people stop playing because it gets repetative and boring. why play another then and if thats not enough, its going to be browser based. Just one Question. WHY? isnt it worse enough already to make the 20th moba game? I can only imagine what they were thinking.
    “döööö,lets do a moba game.” “yes, but we need something new to add” “döööö,lets make it browser based”*dööö, thats worse. great! lets do it”
    sry for this long and angry comment but things like that start make me angry.

    • Dude i absolutely on your side whit that opinion. I still cant understand why there no fun racer MMO out there like Kart Raider. oh well…

      • Man, Kart Raider was a fun game indeed. Only problem for me was that i did lag too much but yes, they should do games like that. If it would be done well im sure many people would enjoy it since there isnt a game like this on pc. Or Football Superstars. (i think that was the name). An awsome idea but sooo poorly done. :/ There is alot space for new ideas. Someone just needs to listen to the community to make it how they player want it. Win/Win situation.

  6. Another MOBA? Man this year games are so bad. I just read Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba,Moba, Moba . . .
    This is getting boring.
