We’re working with two computer science students who’ve just created the first gaming experience that combines fantasy RPG gameplay with modern eSports action. It’s called Arena of Ares and it just launched on Kickstarter.
In Arena of Ares multiple players are immersed in a fully-destructible environment where they engage in sorcery infused combat. Epic tournaments ensue with fully customizable characters and physics-based spells. Create near unlimited (100 quadrillion) Mage builds as you climb up the competitive ladder. No preset classes. No heroes. In Arena of Ares you conjure spells, use strategy, collect gold and inflict awe-inspiring destruction … only one player will remain victorious!
