Crytek has just announced a new game that they have in the works called Arena of Fate that is set to hit both consoles and PC sometime this year. The game itself sounds pretty frickin’ crazy (in a good way), as the game consists of 5 vs. 5 battles between iconic fantasy characters like Frankenstein and Jack the Ripper.
The game director of Arena of Fate said the following about the game:
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.”
I always like when I hear that iconic characters are being put in some outlandish scenario, so Arena of Fate sounds pretty cool to me. I’m hoping they actually carve out some actual scenarios and backstory for all of this madness, but I’m sure more of that good business will be revealed at E3.
