Marvel End Time Arena – Marvel universe MOBA launching this week

Back in 2014, Marvel and Korean developer Smilegate suspended development of a MOBA game, Project Pentakill, based on characters from the Marvel universe. While I did not know when the project was restarted, it is now known as Marvel End Time Arena, and preparing for the Open Beta phase in South Korea on 21 June. Little was known about the game as the website is IP-blocked.

According to details, the first Closed Beta phase started back in September last year. Marvel End Time Arena features 3 beginner modes (including tutorial, a normal PVP mode, a ranked mode (coming soon), a hero experience mode (to try out other heroes), and a full AI mode (AI can be placed in both friendly or enemy slots). The 2 main play maps currently are Manhattan and Wakanda.

According to the website, there are currently 30 heroes on the playable roster, divided into 6 different categories including battler, charger, shooter, damage dealer, infiltrator, and support. Only a handful have alternate costumes now, and there are also new heroes such as Sun Wukong (within the charger series). I am not sure what new heroes are next, but new ones will definitely be added.

Gameplay is pretty much similar to the MOBA titles on the market. Marvel End Time Arena also features familiar functions such as the additional player skills (known as summoner skills in League of Legends), and also the system formerly known as Rune system. There is currently no plan on launching Marvel End Time Arena in overseas markets, perhaps cautious of DC Infinite Crisis’ failure.
