In a trailer that features a pudge-esque Joker and Batman from Hell we get our first glimpse at Turbine’s upcoming MOBA Infinite Crisis. The game has multiple universes of DC Universe super-heroes teaming up with other super-heroes and super-villains of the same multitude and diversity in an attempt to save the Multiverse. In total there are new characters inspired by 52 worlds alternative worlds, including post-apocalyptic and Steampunk landscapes.
In terms of actual gameplay, we aren’t given many details other than the fact players will be able to use the environment as a weapon. According to the game info posted on Infinite Crisis’ website, new paths can be made to create advantages for your teammates or obstacles for your foes. I wonder if we can expect that to work like a more robust version of the Dota tree system, which allows players to cut down trees with abilities or items in order to create new paths. Players can also expect to see cars thrown and meteors called down on themselves and their foes as they brawl through iconic DC locales.
As if dealing with the usual blend of mayhem you get when throwing 10 super-hero/villains in one condensed area wasn’t enough, players can also expect catastrophic events to occur during the match which will further alter the map geography. It must be a Monday.
The official release isn’t until sometime this fall, but you can sign up for the beta now on the official Infinite Crisis site here.
