‘Genesis’ Brings MOBAs to Consoles

More specifically, Genesis brings MOBAs to the PS4. If you’re not familiar with the genre, MOBAs, or Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas, have traditionally been exclusive to PC, and include such titles as Dota 2, League of Legends, and Smite. 

MOBAs originally arose on PC as player creations from RTS games. The first of them, Aeon of Strife, was a custom map for the original Starcraft. This heavily influenced the creation of Dota, which was a custom map in Warcraft III, and later its expansion, The Frozen Throne. Dota inspired the first standalone MOBA, League of Legends, which is one of the most popular games in the world to this day. Of course, Dota went on to become its own standalone game, and is now one of the most played games on Steam. It also spawned S2 Games’ Heroes of Newerth and Blizzard’s Heroes of the Storm.

But now Rampage Games, a subsidiary of Shanghai MOBA Network Technology has liberated the addictively popular genre from PC exclusivity. Genesis is made with the Unreal 4 engine, and has been specifically designed to be played with controllers. It is free-to-play and downloadable at the following link.

    Ive never been big into Mobas but I have thought about playing them. Im surprised a WoW type of game was never made for consoles. I think something like that would do really well esp with how looter shooters games like Destiny tend to evolve.

  3. Gigantic was a thing you know.

    Don’t forget epic Games terrible attempt called paragon, that they abandoned to put more man power onto fortnight. Still wasn’t able to get my refund for it

  5. The consoles needed a new MOBA, don’t get me wrong, but the problem with Genesis is its too much of a Mobile MOBA. It doesn’t only take gameplay aspects from Mobile MOBAs but also it’s in store is mimics that of most MOBAs on your phone. The especially horrendous micro-transaction being a character entirely locked behind a premium currency pay wall and another character costing just an extra $11 (in premium currency), right above the $10 premium currency bundle and $9 below the next $20 dollar bundle.
    All in all It just feels like a company trying to slide into the MOBA market for a quick buck.
