The streets of infinite crisis seem to be filling up with new superheroes faster than ever these days. After Turbine announced this week the DC-Multiverse inspired MOBA would be headed into open beta on March 14th, the studio outlined three additional heroes set to enter the beta.
Mecha Superman, Aquaman, and Green Arrow will all be joining the fight soon, bringing the roster up to 27 for the open beta launch. Each new hero brings a unique gameplay element, with Mecha Superman specializing in the creation and destruction of environmental objects in order to impede or damage his foes and the Green Arrow exchanges his arrow effects based on which ability stance he last used.
Sadly,none of Aquaman’s abilities call upon dolphins or any other marine mammal to aid him, however he does have the uncanny ability to conjure up spouts of water out of concrete. Aquaman also has three very different ultimates which provide Aquaman with a wide range of utility. Depending on which ability Aquaman last used, his ultimate can close large gaps, toss enemies behind him or deal significant amounts of damage to the target based on their missing health.
Incidentally, Infinite Crisis will release its first tri-lane map during the Open Beta called Gotham Divided. Turbine promises the map will separate itself from other more widely known tri-lanes through its abundant use of destructible environments which open up new pathways for players to explore.
