General: New MOBA - Call of Champions at SXSW

Austin-based Spacetime Studios knows how to make hit mobile games, and now they're hoping their development team's expertise will raise their new MOBA, Call of Champions, to that same level of success.

The new multiplayer online battle arena, which will be demoing March 13-15 at the South by Southwest Interactive Festival (SXSW), is designed for fast, mobile play and features 20 champions, five classes and lots of social support, including team recruitment and match planning.



“While the concept of the mobile MOBA is not new, we feel there’s significant room to improve the competitive experience, catering to the short sessions in which gamers use their mobile devices,” said Gary Gattis, CEO, Spacetime Studios. “We've distilled the MOBA to its core components by removing things like item shops, minions, and jungles and adding powerups, a five-minute clock, and a full suite of crazy abilities at your fingertips. Add on deep social layers like friends, teams, and broadcast/spectator modes, and there is nothing like it on mobile.”

    Whenever a new MOBA hits the market - my first question is - how is it different?

     

    This one is - a  mobile platform MOBA with a 5min timed round - so basically a casual tablet/smartphone game.

    Got it.

    EA is bringing Warhammer 40K moba, it will be like LoL or DOTA2, RTS view and all. 

    Boobs are LIFE, Boobs are LOVE, Boobs are JUSTICE, Boobs are mankind's HOPES and DREAMS. People who complain about boobs have lost their humanity.

    Compared to fully-fledged MMO's, MOBA's are relatively quick and easy to make, so we can probably expect to see one or two new ones announced every week for the foreseeable future.

     

    The combination of cheap, quick development and potential million-dollar earnings (think LoL) will be too hard to resist...

    They should make MORTS with battle arena mode (map) instead of MOBA . The MOBA market hit it limit ready.
