Heroes Arena, the next major title from uCool, has arrived on Android and iOS. It features the developer’s own take on what the mobile MOBA experience should be like; borrowing inspiration from the success that PC based games have found.
The game features the classic three lane map that many MOBA fans are familiar with, making it much easier to just dive into it. Game modes include the traditional 5v5 match, but also features 3v3 and 1v1 matches.
At launch, Heroes Arena will feature 26 different heroes spread across six classes. Each class fills a different battlefield role, such as the Assassin, Tank, or Support. It’s up to players to discover the best team composition for their own style, since there can only be a maximum of five players on each team at a time. Meaning that at least one role will go unrepresented.
Graphically, the game is a step up from other mobile based MOBAs. These include assets and fluent gameplay that looks more at home on full blown computers.
To celebrate the launch of the game on iOS, uCool will be running a host of in-game events and rewards. It starts with daily login bonuses, and continues with discounts on heroes for a limited amount of time. Daily events for players to earn additional in-game gold will also be taking place during this time.
Heroes Arena took in over one million players during the pre-registration period. Of course, this was helped by the promise of a free hero for all those who pre-registered. Several stretch goals were also met due to the number of players, providing them with in-game gold, rune packages, leader abilities, and diamonds.
