EA enters the MOBA arena with Dawngate

2 min read


We’ve wondered before if perhaps the MOBA market – currently dominated by League of Legends, Heroes of Newerth and Dota 2 – was becoming a bit too crowded. There’s no way that even those three can be included in all eSports events, but it does seem that MOBA is the current genre du jour – with Smite, Sins of a Dark Age, Infinite Crisis, and even Blizzard All-Stars on the horizon. Well, add another to the list, because EA wants in on the MOBA action.

Dawngate is a new EA-published MOBA title developed by Waystone Games, who could well be the rebranded arm of Visceral’s Free-to-play studio.

What the dickens is Dawngate though? According to the game’s beta sign-up page:


Dawngate is a new MOBA, built from the ground up to look and feel familiar while offering a whole new way to experience MOBA gameplay. Dawngate empowers you to forge the champions you love for the roles you want in a competitive arena, shaped by ever-evolving, community-driven content and story.

It seems like just about everybody feels it needs a MOBA. Do you care? Do you think that the world just can’t do without even more MOBA action?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
