Crytek has announced a new PC and console IP called Arena of Fate.
Developed by Crytek Black Sea in Sofia, Bulgaria, the multiplayer online battle arena game will feature fast-paced 5 vs. 5 battles as "legendary heroes from history and fantasy lock horns".
Iconic figures in the game include Frankenstein, Jack the Ripper, Baron Münchhausen, Joan of Arc, Robin Hood and Little Red Riding Hood. The game will be playable at E3 in LA next month before entering early access beta testing on PC this summer.
Crytek Black Sea MD and Arena of Fate game director Vesselin Handjiev said: "Besides the game's iconic heroes, we are also challenging ourselves to carefully craft a streamlined player experience that allows for both greater accessibility, and rich, deep, action-packed gameplay.
"We are very excited to meet the first wave of players in the arena this summer, and will be listening carefully to the feedback we receive and making the community's contribution a key part of our efforts to perfect the fun."
