New info on Heroes of Order & Chaos MOBA game from Gameloft, scheduled for October release

Gameloft revealed details about their forthcoming multi-player online battle arena (MOBA) game Heroes of Order & Chaos. Heroes will be a free-to-play online game in the tradition of typical MOBA games. Players will join together in teams of 3-5 players to battle other teams with the same goal – destroy the enemy’s base. Players will be able to control NPC characters as they push through the arena, destroy towers, collect loot, and help the player power up. The arena will have three major “lanes,” a river and landmarks.

Gameloft has promised a roster of thirty heroes will be available for players to use, with six heroes available per week. The heroes available in any given week will rotate, but players will be able to buy “off-season” heroes.

Because players will be using smartphones and tablets, Gameloft had to give some thought to creating new control schemes for players. A virtual thumbstick will be available for the left hand and used to control the player’s character. The right hand will have access to an attack button and hotkeys for other actions that will line the right hand edge of the screen. Gameloft also introduced some new features to address controller-less devices like an auto-attack option and lock on target. These will let players continue their attacks while checking things like the mini-map.

Heroes of Order & Chaos is scheduled to be released on October 11, 2012, for both iOS and Android devices.

  • I can’t think of a genre less suitable for mobile play

    How are moba games? Ive never played anything like this. Closest thing would be starfall or command and conquer. Is it similar?

    ImSteevin… lol Dunno what you mean by that, moba games are possibly the best genre for mobile play. Simple controls while still being an in-depth game, logic?
