Japanese developer Sunsoft has this morning announced the impending global release of Dark Eclipse, a brand-new free-to-play MOBA, with a twist: It’s being billed as the “first ever MOBA for PlayStation VR,” using Dualshock or Move controllers. The PR says it’s a “passion project” from the scrappy 40-year-old company.
“As true fans of the genre, SUNSOFT developed DARK ECLIPSE by finding balance between core MOBA elements and remixing conventional MOBA genre definitions. DARK ECLIPSE is a fast-paced one-on-one battle to overcome opponents’ teams of three ‘Leaders,’ chosen from a roster of 15 characters with unique skills and abilities, and supporting “Soldiers” that kill at the behest of players’ orders. SUNSOFT is planning regular, free updates to the game, adding new Leaders and fine-tuning the game’s balance. Tight drag-and-drop controls push the real-time strategy (RTS) inspired mechanics even further as players place their units on the map directly while also choosing where to construct any of the five varieties of Towers that each apply different effects on the gameplay.”
The good news for those of you who are intrigued by all this is that you don’t have long to wait for your fix: Dark Eclipse launches on September 25th.
