[Game website] I first discovered this new online game last week, and wasn’t ready to post anything about it as no actual gameplay videos were available. While official videos are still not released, GameSpot managed to record an interview with the developers and of course, took some actual game footage. Sins of a Dark Age merges the RTS (StarCraft) with MOBA (League of Legends, Dota) genres together in yet another unique hybrid. The developer also made Sins of a Solar Empire if you heard of the game.
Well, there are 5 players on each team. 1 of them will be the commander, which will play in RTS mode to collect resources and build/ upgrade the team’s base. Control minions to farm resources, build units and stuff. Also, as the “commander” tag suggests, he must be quick to give instruction to his team mates. The other 4 players will be controlling just 1 hero character, just like in Dota. I think this is rather easy to understand in words, but I have got to really try it out for myself.
