While Infinite Crisis, DC’s take on the MOBA genre, may have initially seemed to be little more than a jump onto the nearest wagon, the videos released earlier this week do reach at the potential of a comic book-themed LOL-alike.
The two videos are character breakdowns of the abilities and tactics of Nightmare Batman and Wonder Woman. As just two of the vast roster DC have at their disposal, the scope and flexibility of the characters becomes clear.
I’ve played criminally little of Dota 2 and League of Legends but I can spot something of the similarities in movesets and roles these two characters are being assigned. Though, the question of Infinite Crisis will quickly become “Is this just a reskin or does it have something to offer the emerging MOBA genre?”
