Crytek's Arena of Fate and the PC Version of Ryse: Son of Rome Will be Playable at Gamescom
Crytek is ready to put its troubles behind it and show the world why there's no need to worry about the company's future. Free-to-play MOBA Arena of Fate and the recently announced PC version of Ryse: Son of Rome will both be playable at Crytek's booth during Gamescom next week. Sadly, there was no mention of HUNT: Horrors of the Gilded Age.
If you're not familiar with Arena of Fate, it's essentially a MOBA for those that don't have the time to devote to the two most popular MOBAs today, Dota 2 and LoL. While the current map is your typical three-lane map and battles are your typical 5v5, Arena of Fate matches are limited to just twenty minutes. There are three win conditions: the first team to reach ten points, the first team to destroy the other team's core, or the team with the most points at the end of twenty minutes. You earn one point toward your team for every seven hero kills, every tower destroyed, or every Titan NPC destroyed. For someone like me, who stopped playing Dota 2 simply because good matches last about an hour, Arena of Fate's twenty-minute matches sound quite appealing.
Crytek's public Gamescom booth will be located in Hall 7.1, B031, and it sounds like Ryse will be playable at 4K resolution! Crytek will also have a presence in the Gamescom Business Center at Hall 4.1, A033, where it will show off CRYENGINE.
