Mobile MOBA 'Vainglory' coming to PC, alpha available now
Vainglory is targeting a new audience.
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.
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.
