So there’s another MOBA coming out. Surprise!




But if the announcement trailer released this week during E3 is any indication, Eterlands is bringing more to the table than just another batch of lanes and towers.

First of all, you can’t help but be impressed by the graphical quality, both in the environments, which change based on weather and time of day, and in the animations and particle/physics effects. But it’s not just for looks. The game promises “fully destructible environments,” offering strategic options like destroying a bridge to make passage impossible and breaking a dam to flood part of the map.

The combat itself sounds rather hardcore, with little room for error. As stated on the website:

Imagine a game where a huge punch can really break bones leaving no chance to survive, where a superhot magic plasma annihilates everything what it touches including the ground itself. If someone gets a huge hit, their body flies away knocking over other characters and minions. Arrows have real deadly wounds if they hit flesh. You always have to be very cautious because life and death is only separated by one wrong decision. You need to be a real team player to survive on the battleground.

Eterlands doesn’t look like your run-of-the-mill MOBA, but we’ll have to see if it can deliver on its lofty promises and get a foothold in the ultra-competitive MOBA market.

    Another generic repetetive brainless moba for nerds (facepalm)

    • "Nerd" on June 18, 2014

      At least it is going to be better than those shitty mobas like SMITE or Prime World. And I am going to play it, but oh, I can’t because I am not a nerd :/.

    That Dragonball Z Ki Blast charge sound at 1:19…

    I guess it was only a matter of time until someone made a “realistic” looking one. Surprisingly enough it doesn’t look terrible actually. Visually anyway.

    • Adrian87 on June 14, 2014

      Sins of a Dark Age it also has a realistic look to it. Where the towers actually are towers, minions are soldiers with swords and arrows and all that.

      • Bandit1899 on June 14, 2014

        But Sins of dark ages sucks in everything: animations, effects, gameplay, realism. So what s your point?

        • Adrian87 on June 14, 2014

          Point was realistic look. Nothing else. And yes you are right, visually SoDA is weak and animations are subpar. But i liked the gameplay of the game and they have some nice ideas with questing (not sure i like the stat modifying gear outside game, but means extra customization and if it’s well thought could work without ruining the balance). But in truth you wont see any realistic moba. For a moba to work it has to be fantasy or sci-fi. How many realistic abilities can you make on a character? You can make a few.. but how many characters can you make before going out of realistic abilities? There will never be a realistic moba.
          My reply was only referring to the realistic look, which the previous comment was about.

          • Bandit1899 on June 15, 2014

            Realism doesn’t mean only realistic characters like normal humans and thats it. It means having realistic effects such as weather conditions, wind, simulation on cloths or hair, smoke, fluids etc etc.. So I think this is what this game is about and i think it looks awsome so far and has a great potential. We sure need to see more gameplay and mechanics but so far i think has the potential to bring the moba genre into next generations games. Finally.

    oh looks a moba… pass

    • Cyril on June 13, 2014

      What tipped you off? You didn’t see it in the title “A Pretty New MOBA”?

    • Ebonyc on June 13, 2014

      You figured that out all by yourself?

  8. Kakacarrotcake on June 13, 2014

    looks cool . but the name is dumb and wont catch on.

    • Marvin on June 13, 2014

      LOL I agree shouldve chosen a different name it sounds really lame and just like most games with lame name it probably wont be heard much of.

    • Adrian87 on June 14, 2014

      Yea i agree. First thing i thought when i read the mmobomb email was wtf is that?!?

      They should have thought for a better name. If the trees do not spawn back, there are probably gonna be some games with no more forests left on the map. But no need to call your game deforestation lol.
      I can bet they will change it until release. Sounds like a freaking woodcutting simulator now.

      • Greg777 on June 14, 2014

        What is wrong with name *Eterlands*?

        • Adrian87 on June 14, 2014

          xD Nothing.
          Thanks for waking me up and disregard my previous comment please. I need to learn how to read. I thought the game name is Deforestation and Eterlands is map name or world name in game lore.
          Big mistake on my side. Sorry.

          • Greg777 on June 14, 2014

            hehe oki =)

    • vixion on June 13, 2014

    • Eviil on June 13, 2014

      I could stack my first master bedroom with shooters, my basement with RGP’s and my pool with fighting games, but I can only fill my pantry with MOBA’s, there aren’t that many around. Whoever started with that rumor has brain-washed the entire world thinking so. L O tothemotherfreaking L

        I am also a fanboy who provides oral favors for fat hairy men.

    • Cyril on June 13, 2014

      We should stop producing games, there are too many!! Also, we should stop reproducing, we are too many!!

      • AoBaka on June 14, 2014

        i agree with reproducing,its making games cost more and it isnt the question of having too much mobas,its that everybody decided to make mobas in the same time period

    • FrosTanK on June 14, 2014

      OMFG!!!!!! WILL YOU STOP WITH THE TOO MANY!! OMG OMG OMG!!! SHTAAAAAP!!! its like you say too many, what the too many is people like you dude, do me a favor and cut your ***** so you wont multiply or respawn anymore.
