The multiplayer online battle arena playing field continues to grow.
A new Indie MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) game, Skara combines the kill-stream action and quality graphics of Call of Duty with the character control of Street Fighter. Skara pits five races against one another for domination of a world torn apart by cataclysmic events and where success is tracked with leader tables and honor points, which can be used to unlock special features. Skara aims to be the highest quality and most addictive F2P out there. The game is being developed for PC and next gen consoles.
8 Bit Studios has launched its Kickstarter Campaign to create the latest in Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) gaming: Skara—the Blade Remains. A F2P concept that allows live action fighting (think Street Fighter combined with Call of Duty) between anyone on the globe, Skara aims to be produced and funded by gamers, for gamers.
That is how it has attracted the best and brightest from Spain’s gaming world, who in some cases quit their jobs at successful companies like Ubisoft and Eurocom to be part of the project. Pablo Rodriguez and Cesar Ortega (co-founders) started working on the project in 2009. Skara promises to be innovative on a variety of levels. By effectively becoming cross-platform, Skara can be enjoyed on PC, next-gen consoles, and portable devices.
It will also enhance the way fighting takes place. On an Xbox, for instance, it utilizes the joystick to attack and defend. Skara’s fighting will be realistically lethal—one mistake can spell death—and democratic. New players have just as much chance of killing experienced players as the other way around.
