Sins of a Dark Age Looks To Break MOBA Mould

Brought to you by the Sins of a Solar Empire team

Sins of a Dark Age looks very intriguing, partly because it's impossible to know what it's going to be like. I don't even know how to categorize it. It's a MOBA style game, with RTS mechanics at times, but also kinda MMORPG-y? But also partly because it's the same team behind Sins of a Solar Empire.

The main topic is Realm Quests, which SoaDA is strongly focusing on. A Quest Director (sorta like Left 4 Dead's own AI Director) is an invisible robot behind the scenes, pulling levers and knobs. They can spawn whole new sub-quests that can affect the flow and tide of battle, including entirely new items to craft. They are calling it a 'third generation MOBA,' in that way.

If this has piqued your curiosity enough, they've even got a Founder's Program, similar to MechWarrior Online, that lets you snag early-in for the closed beta and bonus rewards for the official launch.

If the guys that made the fantastic game SoaSE can't get me interested in the 'MOBA' genre, then it is definitely a hopeless case.
