Developer Nival has announced the start of closed beta registration for their castle building, persistent RPG MOBA Prime World.

Prime World forgoes the usual solo tri-lane map more notable MOBAs like LoL and Dota favor for a more diversified approach. Players can expect at least six game modes including a 3v3 and 4v4 map. Instead of choosing from a variety of static heroes, players can recruit individual persistent heroes and equip them in between battles with collectible and upgradable talents.

You can sign up for the closed beta by visting the official site here

  1. I don’t hate mobas but they need to try to go a step further and make one in a non instanced truly persistent world. i just can’t enjoy most instance based or room based games. The only exception are some hack and slashes similar to diablo and pso.

    • Let me clarify what i mean, I don’t mind instances for pvp and such but i would rather have an open world between skirmishes with some kind of pve element even if there aren’t any levels to gain from it. i hate skulking about in lobbies between matches and that’s what most mobas consist of.

  2. i played this game on russian servers. u can get 40000 ms ping on the middle of game without any reason.
    dont play this shit.

      • Auto attack MOBAs are for scrubs caught behind the times.
        Really, Smite’s system is the only way to go. Other MOBAs just feel absolutely disgusting and take far too little skill.

        • @Anon
          too little skill????
          auto attack is fun, its popular and saying its disgusting is just plain insult to everyone who likes playing them, you like smite, then stick with it! Don’t insult other games just because you don’t like it!
          Let that be a lesson to the rest of you guys reading this.

  3. This looks alright. I don’t get all the hate on MoBa’s though. People aren’t complaining about all the asian mmo’s that come out each day. And they are the same everytime. People talking about its a copy of this its a copy of that. Well ofc it has the same mechanics, its a game in the same genre. We are not complain about every shooter has guns, or every mmorpg has quests or mobs to kill. People non stop spouting BS about LoL being a ripoff of Dota. Hell ofc it is, its created by the same dudes that created the Dota map in the first place. Why the hell do you think the made MoBa games in the first place? The same with other MoBa’s. And ofc we are seeing allot of them now a days, they are freaking popular. You’d be stupid not to create a moba if you can. Not because there is allot of new things you can add but because its just a fun genre.

    ——>WOW FIRST MOBA! DOTA RIPPED OF WOW! <—– This wrappes up how 73% of the people flamming about these moba's look like.

  4. this game is just a clone of Dota and LoL. The diference is that you can build your own castle and gather resources so its kind of a strategy game s bit. At the beggining you have to chose a fraction but it doesn’t matter which one i think cuz the heroes and tallents are the same for both of them! tallents in this game play the role of equipable items which you usualy bought from a vendor in Dota or LoL. But here in Prime world you collect prime for killing enemy heroes and monsters which is used to learn equiped tallents in the battle.
    Not a writer thou .. so i can’t explain everything//but this game is still a copy of the first moba games like dota. Played it for little more than half a year …nothing special!

  5. Another Moba, Honestly it just seems everyones hopping onto the band wagon to make money,no originality just copy-paste. But I guess I’ll/we’ll gave to wait and see how this game goes.

  6. There are probably more mobas that are going to come out. The games probably started development when there were still very few mobas, they saw that there wasn’t a lot of competition. Many other developers saw this as well. So they all started makeing a moba. But now that the mobas are almost finished. They can’t just waste all the money they had put in them, so they have to release them.

  7. BlinQ somebody like LoL somebody like Dota2 in my opinoin LoL is much easlier to play it have better gameplay you must buy champions to play with them so it can be more competitive because i like that i must do something to get really good hero not just click on him like in Dota2 , Dota2 is harder MOBA game than LoL but LoL is more funny game for me.

  8. dubstep ruins all trailers.. sorry, but dubstep sucks. and im sorry to say is LoL will be the only real moba. so why bother trying to make copies of it

    • LoL is a copy of Dota 1-2 and Dota is a lot of better and more serious MOBA than LoL so shut your mouth about copying. šŸ™‚

      • Slow pace =/= better or hardcore.

        Anyways at least there’s something unique in this title – You can build your own castles which I have no idea how they are going to affect the play but at least you can interact more with the environment…

        And there was that part of the clip as well when the burnt woods grew back again which is another example.

        Sure it won’t revolutionize nor I have any intention to actually play it but at least there are some sings that it tries but then again similar systems are gonna be in the new DC moba as well.

        • Actually League is slower than Dota…-.-‘ God the amount of idiots who don’t even know what the hell they’re talking about.

      • Have you even played dota 1? How is LoL a copy of it when the matches only last about 30 minutes, while in dota 1 the matches can last up to 2 hours and longer…
        You probably think that any game in the same genre is a copy of another. Is CoD and Halo a copy of doom?

        • League of legends was originally suppose to be a mod of something or whatever and became its own game. :/ somebody is really showing their inner fan boy

    • Wtf are you retarded?! LoL Is a complete rip off of DOTA hell alot of the champions in LoL are rip offs from DOTA’s champions

      Cassiopiea = Maduessa

      Jax = Phantom Assassin

      Shaco = Spectre

      Taric = Omninight

      Soraka = Chen

      Heimer = Techies

      Tristana = Sniper

      Warwick = Strygwyr

      and you think That LoL is the only REAL MOBA? Dude what about HoN or Dota 2 some would say SMITE even though its 3rd person instead of from over head and then you have new ones coming out that look just as good like Infinite Crisis the DC one looks good to!

      I love LoL I play every day but your cant just go throwing out LoL is the only real MOBA when there are MOBA’s older then it that were better and are still better (Dota) >.>

      • +1 to that.I only play LOL nowdays but I wont say only LOL real moba.who so ever say that is a kid maybe.Dota was the fresh concept as it wud be and others are just inspiration from it if not all copied.

        I think other than HON at earlier stage(Later they had a lot other heroes),every game has a unique style.

  9. To be honest, some new games like Guild War II, EVE, City of Heroes are great. Also, Age of Wushu offers unique fighting skills. It’s really appealing to me.
