Arena Of Heroes Open Beta Event This Weekend
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Zattikka has announced they will offer open beta testing of Arena of Heroes this weekend. The upcoming cross-platform free-to-play MOBA game will be release for OS X, Windows and iOS in the second quarter of 2013. The developer promise the game will offer cross-platform competitive play both in real-time and asynchronously. Players will be able to choose from a variety of unique heroes to form their team of four to go to the Tower Apex Arena and battle against their opponents.

In the center of the Galaxy lies a giant metal dome. This dome protects the greatest power in the universe. The ever-changing surface of the dome is dotted by thousands of towers. When one tower is destroyed another must take its place. The power this dome holds, however, is a mystery to all but the god-like beings of the Halcyon Council.

To better protect this unfathomable and mysterious power, the Council selects an elite group of best and brightest from every species to serve as Guardians. Guardians are tasked with seeking out, training, and commanding Heroes in a constant battle for influence, fame, glory, and balance known as the Arena of Heroes.

The Arena began as a way for the richest and most powerful governments and organizations in the Galaxy to settle disputes, but once the mass communication relays were complete, the Arena quickly become the premiere form of entertainment in the entire Galaxy. Billions of billions of sentient beings view each match at work, at home, and on personal devices.

Quickly it became everyone’s dream to be a Hero in the arena. Hundreds of thousands of applicants are rejected every year. The interest was so great, the Council decided to find more Guardians to meet the demand.

Now it’s your turn. The Galaxy needs its best and brightest to defend the Eye, protect the mysterious power, and win fame, fortune, and influence among the highest echelons of Galactic power. The Council has summoned you to become a Guardian of the Arena. Will you answer the call?

What is the Arena?

The Arena of Heroes is where the battle for the Galaxy takes place. Two sides of up to 2 players (Guardians) select heroes and do everything they can to destroy the enemy base. Each team consists of 4 heroes.

Specific battles in the Arena take place on their own towers, but each tower is built the same. There are three “lanes,” or pathways between the two bases. In each lane there is a tower that must be defended or destroyed. Each base spawns minions – robotic fighters who attack enemies automatically.
