Crytek has announced a new online multiplayer coming to PC and consoles, Arena of Fate
. Crytek will be bringing different characters from history, fairytales, and legends together in a five vs. five format in this free-to-play free-for-all. Choose from characters such as Jack the Ripper, Joan of Arc, Little Red Riding Hood, Nikola Tesla, Robin Hood, Fenrir...the list goes on and on...
Crytek Managing Director, Vesselin Handjiev, says:
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. 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 has entered the early Beta stage on the PC version, and those attending E3 will be able to get some hands-on experience with the game. If, like many of us, you won't be at E3, Crytek is also taking applications for the Beta here on their official site
In the meantime, we have a brief teaser trailer to engage our interest...
...and some screens from the trailer of Fenrir and Little Red meeting in the arena.Arena of Fate
is due out this summer on PC. To find out when and for which consoles it's coming, however, we have some waiting yet to do. We'll let you know as soon as we hear anything new.
