Starting today, Xbox Live Gold players can get in on the action in Nexon's free-to-play MOBA, Hyper Universe. At launch, the game will boast 39 characters -- each featuring diverse abilities and styles, as well as two maps: Delta Station and Dragon Refuge. Delta station is a military outpost commanded by a captain while Dragon Refuge is... well a dragon's refuge. Seriously, though, there's a dragon hiding away in a forest.

In addition to the two maps, players can also take part in custom matches. Or... if they're just not in the participating mood, they can find other players to watch via Spectate mode.

To celebrate the Xbox One launch, Nexon will be rewarding players who win ten matches between August 7 and September 10 with an exclusive Aurora's Blade Skin for Allen. There are also daily and weekly missions that will offer additional skins as rewards, and players will receive a coupon that will unlock almost any skin in the game.

Players will have a chance to try out pretty much any Hyper over time as they will rotate into free-play weekly. Those they enjoy most can be purchased in the Hyper Shop. Or, the whole thing can be avoided by purchasing the Ultimate Hypers Pack for $19.99. Nexon values this pack at $120. It includes access to all the Hypers, all future Hypers, six XBox exclusive hyper skins, and equipment for Arslan, Athena, Blue Rose, Cain, Ignitia, and Turner.

This game was cool... it just missed the window of being big is all. Back in 1999.

This game honestly lends itself well to consoles. The developers really need to work on their map design and character design if they want the game to survive; in both areas it seems like they have no real experience; but a lot of the mechanical issues that I felt playing with mouse and keyboard would be fairly mitigated on controller. Overall, it's a fun MOBA that's unique enough to occupy it's own space, and I would definitely recommend people on Xbox One check it out.
