Infinite Crisis is finally out of beta

It seems like it was just yesterday that Infinite Crisis hit the beta stage of its design. Provided that one day can be measured in years for you. Now, the Turbine Studios game is finally ready to go live, as it pits the heroes and villains of DC Comics against one another in that MOBA genre that seems to be all the rage these days.

Loosely based on the comic book event that saw a gigantic pair of hands smoosh various alternate Earths together using the power of a device that had a reality-eating god strapped to it in an attempt to create the perfect world (comics were weird in 2005), Infinite Crisis stars a number of heroes and villains from the DC multiverse. Who are naturally all clobbering one another into spandex atoms.

Just like most MOBA games, action takes place in online battle arenas, with characters regularly rotated in and out of Infinite Crisis. It’s all free to play as well, with the title dotted with various microtransactions that allow players to buy some cosmetic goods, unlock characters and other stuff. You can even pick up Elite Pack on Steam and get access to all 33 purchasable characters in the game and a special gold Superman skin for less than $30 (until April 10). CHA-CHING BABY!

Beta players who dropped $28 or more in the game will also have access to all of their characters, which includes Krypto the Super-Dog, Nightmare Earth Batman and Mecha Earth Wonder Woman. I’m not a MOBA fan, but I am a sucker for comics. I might even give this game a go before I crawl to a corner and weep after being constantly berated for an hour by other players.

  1. I saw it last night, had some really cool art work, then I saw it was a MOBA. Next.

      Me too.
      But while checking out the other F2P games I stumbled upon Warframe again.
      Give me a reason NOT to get that.

    Is it trolling if you play as The Joker and troll the other players? Kinda seems like something he would do.

        Sometimes I’m genuinely astounded that you have a sense of humour I approve of. And that’s just because I get told far too often that my sense of humour is so dark that Batman would hunt personally hunt me down.

        Of course this is just something the voices in my head keep telling me…

      He’s the only kinda cool character DC made. Everybody else may as well be Aquaman #873 or something.

          I like him. If you’ve read the comic books he’s kind of a badass. He’s just not ideal for tv.

            So you’re essentially a COMMUNITY MOD. This is a little like being CLASS CAPTAIN at school. You’re not the FUN GUY at the party. But everyone knows you’ll be the sober driver and get everyone home safe after. Or drown someone with your tears of responsibility.

            Did we mention that you also had to take shit from EVERYONE ELSE as well as Admiral? πŸ˜›

    I think Green Lantern deserves a remake. He’s actually quite a good superhero and with excellent powers.
