In early September, Apple brought two indie game developers up on stage to show off their epic multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game. This player vs. player (PVP)fighting game is practically unheard of in the mobile gaming world, especially with the level of graphics and smooth gameplay that we saw in the demonstration by the team at Super Evil Megacorp. This week, the free-to-play multiplayer three-on-three battle game launched in the app store and it looks as good on the iPad Air as it did in the demo.
Vainglory puts players into a fantasy-themed battle arena against two other real life opponents for 20-minute pickup games that will turn you into a warrior. Choose your character, buy some upgrades, and head out to destroy the enemy’s Vain crystal.
