Update: Crytek has now shared a few details about its “action-packed” online multiplayer game Arena of Fate. The game will pit legendary heroes from history and fantasy in fast-paced 5 vs. 5 battles. Eight characters have been announced for the game so far Frankenstein, Jack the Ripper, Baron Münchhausen, Fenrir, Robin Hood, Tesla, Joan of Arc, and Little Red Rising Hood.
“Tap into their famed traits in battle as you bring Frankenstein back from the dead, use Jack’s cleavers to gruesome effect, and launch across the map on Baron Münchhausen’s cannonball,” Crytek explains.
“Imagine Joan of Arc and Robin Hood cooperating to hunt down Little Red Riding Hood – Wouldn’t that be terrific? But besides the game’s iconic heroes, which everyone in the team really loves, we are also challenging ourselves to carefully craft a streamlined player experience that allows for both greater accessibility, and rich, deep, action-packed gameplay,” said Managing Director of Crytek Black Sea and Game Director of Arena of Fate, Vesselin Handjiev.
“We are very excited to meet the first wave of players in the arena this summer, and will be listening carefully to the feedback we receive and making the community’s contribution a key part of our efforts to perfect the fun.”
The game’s official website is now live, and players can head over there now to sign up for the beta.
Original Story: Crytek has released a teaser trailer for its upcoming “action-packed” online multiplayer game titled Arena of Fate that will arrive on consoles and PC in summer 2014.
According to the trailer’s description, players will “step into the shoes of legendary heroes from history and fantasy and lock horns in the “Arena of Fate”.” The trailer also invites players to sign up for the game’s beta via its official website—that isn’t live at the time of writing.
The game is being developed by Bulgarian studio Crytek Black Sea, which was purchased by Crytek in 2008.
An early access beta for Arena of Fate will begin this summer, and the game will be playable at E3 2014 next month.
