[Play free now] Master X Master (MXM), the Action RPG/MOBA from NCSOFT is launching in North America and Europe beginning today. The fresh take on the genre offers a game-changing mechanic where players are able to switch playable Masters at any time during a match. All the action is framed within a story about saving earth from the artificial intelligence villain, Atlas.
The PVE and PVP gameplay options in Master X Master are all designed around players being able to use the tag mechanic to be able to swap Masters instantaneously, be it in the traditional tri-lane 5 vs. 5 style of the classic MOBA genre, the 3 vs. 3 team deathmatch mode, or even in the PVE stages where players are solo or in co-op groups taking on hordes of enemies.
Some skills persist even after swapping, so finding synergies with Masters can lead to some devastating combinations in the right hands. Also coming to Master X Master are mini-games, which have a lighthearted twist on the co-op/competitive gameplay, where players test their skills to get through obstacles. The mini-games will be rolling out within the next few weeks after launch.
