Vainglory is multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) designed for touchscreens. Gameplay is very similar to experiences like Dota 2 and League of Legends, where two teams fight each other in order to destroy the enemy's base while defending their own. Vainglory is quite popular on iOS and Android as has garnered a significant following. However, developer Super Evil Megacorp wants even more gamers to play it.
Today, the studio announced that Vainglory was making its way to PC. The alpha is now available for testing on the game's website. Keep in mind that the port is in the very early stages of development so it has a lot of issues. Super Evil Megacorp posted the following message to explain the test.
Please note that we still have a lot of work to do – proper text input support, preference settings... custom key bindings, bug fixes, and control input tuning are all in progress. But we're excited to get started. We want you to be part of this journey and would love your help in making Vainglory for Windows... every bit as good as it is on mobile... Give it a try, get your Windows... friends to give it a try and tell us what you think! We'll be releasing frequent updates in the coming weeks and months. As we said before, this is still a very early alpha and we know there will be issues.
Hopefully Vainglory will eventually become a great experience on PC. Porting touchscreen controls over to a keyboard and mouse-only environment presents its own set of challenges. We've played the MOBA on iOS and it's a surprisingly addictive experience. If you're looking to get into a title like that, be sure to check out Vainglory.
