Strife Hits Open Beta
S2 Games has announced that the launch of the global open beta for Strife. The Heroes of Newerth creators' new MOBA "features deep, collaborative gameplay" and offers "a more accessible MOBA with a high skill ceiling."
Strife's heroes lead their pets into battle, and, unlike many other MOBAs, there's no "last hitting"; gold from a kill is shared by teammates. In another twist, you won't have to pay to unlock Strife's heroes, as they're all available for free. There are currently 20 on the game's heroes page, but you can be pretty sure that more are on the way. The game primarily plans to make its money through cosmetic skins for both heroes and pets.
Finally, Strife aims to "tighten" up the battlefield, making it easier for players to get back into the battle, all of which lends to a faster-paced, more accessible game. If you haven't checked out Strife yet, you might as well do it now!
