MOBAs Coming To The One
I had to look up the meaning of MOBA the other day. Smite, Gigantic, and Battleborn (Gearbox) are all coming to the Xbox One and the first two will be “free-to-play”. If you want to get an early taste, you can sign up for the Smite Beta right now. All they want is an e-mail address. I don’t think that Smite will be the game that holds my attention because of its similarities to fantasy RPG games like Diablo. However, Gigantic almost certainly will. Since both Smite and Gigantic are going to be free-to-try, I will be downloading and testing them out as soon as they are available. I have gone ahead and made a page for these for quick reference. In the meantime, check out the gameplay vids embedded above and below.
EDIT: I just need to add that regardless of your interest in these games, bringing this genre to the consoles, especially to our console of choice, is a boon, and hopefully a sign of (more good) things to come.
More vids after the jump.
