First look at Shards of War
Time to play and test the recently released Shards of War, the new multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) from BigPoint. The game takes a break from the typical fantasy and magic theme and sensors off into the future where parallel universes have collided and Sentinels from other worlds now battle it out. The game is a traditional 5v5 3 lane base assault MOBA, which whilst having many similar features to other games in the genre has a few twists and new features such as WASD controls and a unique Loadout system.
In our first look we get to play an all AI bot game (the game is literally just become accessible so there are very few people playing in yet) set in a futuristic urban map where we step into the shoes of Striker, one of the attacker role Sentinels in the game equipped with powerful blaster rifle attacks and grenades. Check our video to see just how we got on.
Very soon we'll publish a detailed profile, so stay tuned. Meanwhile, you can take a look at the review we published a couple of days ago.
