In case this title boggled your mind MOBA stands for Multiplayer Online Battle Arena and they’re pretty popular right now. League of Legends, Dawn of the Ancients, SMITE and Heroes of the Storm are just four of them being played religiously. Well, Dark Nexus Arena is the new MOBA on the block and it has got a Warhammer 40,000 skin…
The idea behind the game is that the characters above have been captured by the Dark Eldar Wych Cult and have been forced to fight in some of their bloodstained arenas on the world of Commorragh. I suppose that’s justification enough to have these races all fighting against and with each other right?
Effectively it doesn’t overly matter if the justification for any of this is sound if the game is good. If they can get the mechanics and the business model right then they could be on to a good thing. Make the game free to play and then have heroes, skins, and other cosmetics as your payment option and you’re sorted.
Above you can see the first of their payment options which already look eye weepingly insane. One site pointed out that though they say they’re Warhammer 40,000 mega fans they seem to have demoted Ghazghkull to a Meganob. I don’t think he’d be best pleased. It’s a bit much to ask for payments this early considering we’ve seen one teaser.
Hopefully it will do something different making it worth the play time!
