The Guardians of Atlas open alpha fired up a few days ago, and you can freely try and test out this new MOBA/RTS hybrid from Artillery!
I actually noticed this piece of news Friday evening via PCGamesN, but my wife had me running ragged all weekend with no time to post (yeah, I am whipped). It would seem that the Guardians of Atlas open alpha fired up on Friday. If you are an RTS or MOBA fan then this might be one to check out.
We actually talked about Guardians of Atlas from Artillery back in December of 2015. At that time it was simply called Atlas and the initial testing registration was underway. The game’s popularity was given a huge boost by the involvement of Sean “Day” Plott. Anyway, a lot more is known about the game now than then. In order to save time, let me quote the game’s description from the Guardians of Atlas website:
“Guardians of Atlas is a unique MOBA-RTS hybrid (“army battler”) for Windows and Mac which combines the action-packed, hero-centric gameplay of a MOBA and the economy, territory control, and individual unit control of an RTS. In our first game mode, Skirmish, two teams of three players (3v3, PvP or bots) build and upgrade their armies, fight to destroy the enemy’s base, and summon titans — powerful units that help a team push forward. Players with a MOBA background will find the gameplay to have more depth and strategy while players with an RTS background will enjoy the frequent battling and unique army compositions. Competitive players will enjoy our replay system (every game is recorded and shareable) and post-game analytics.”
There you go. If that sounds like your kind of thing then I suggest heading over to the game’s website and grabbing the Guardians of Atlas open alpha client to give it a whirl. Enjoy!
