Why this has piqued our interest
The term MOBA used to be a word associated with a hardcore group of players who did not take too well to new players. However with more games coming to the market offering a wide variety of weapons and skills the once ring fenced community seems to be opening up.
Games of Glory is looking like a good prospect to come to the top table in the future but for now it just needs to find its feet along with a strong community.
French / Swedish Indie studio, Lightbulb Crew today unveils more details about the weapons gameplay mechanics available for the Clones in Games of Glory. Each weapon comes with its own specific gameplay and unique capacities that the player will have to combine correctly with the special skills of each Clone.
In the heat of battle, players can change their active weapon at any time in order to adapt their offensive strategy and turn the situation to their advantage. Switch to close combat if the Clone is out of ammunition, send a lethal shot with a sniper rifle after an escaping enemy, mark a player to reveal his location and then strike him with a grenade launcher from safe behind a wall… These are examples of some of the situations and strategic opportunities that weapon management allows. The combination of the unique skills of a Clone, the weapon he chooses, and the team structure will give the opportunity to players to elaborate new strategies for each game. The controls inspired by Hack’n’Slash, the free aiming so characteristic of Shooters, and the extreme mobility of the Clones bring new skills for players to master.
Through a new video, Lightbulb Crew introduces three of Games of Glory’s weapons. In the end, more than 40 weapons will be available at launch.
· The Cinetic Dual Barrel 10 (CDB10)
Extremely powerful, to the point of repelling foes several meters away, this sawed-off shotgun is the perfect ally for pushing the enemy toward traps, or even to stop the progression of a nosy player who has come too close to your base…
· The LAWBringer MK I
This rocket-launcher brings some serious power to a fight, starting with its longer range and the area of effect -damages caused by the explosion of its missiles. Ideal for an ambush or a team assault, the LAWBringer MK I will seriously make a dent in both the health and the morale of its opponents.
· Irisium Claws
These sharp blades possess such power and speed that they compensate for the risks taken by engaging close-combat. In addition to harming the enemy without a chance for quick regeneration, the Irisium Claws cause bleeding that deals continuous damage over time, ideal to finish off a fleeing enemy.
