PSVR user might be excited to learn that DARK ECLIPSE, the first ever MOBA for PlayStation VR, will be available globally on Sept. 25. More importantly the game will be available as a free-to-play game and playable with either dualshock 4 or PlayStation Move controllers.
DARK ECLIPSE is a passion project from Japanese developer and publisher SUNSOFT as the company celebrates its 40-year anniversary, a rare milestone in the videogame industry. The title marks the company’s re-emergence into North American and European markets as the company brings MOBA mechanics to VR for the first time.
As true fans of the genre, SUNSOFT developed DARK ECLIPSE by finding balance between core MOBA elements and remixing conventional MOBA genre definitions. DARK ECLIPSE is a fast-paced one-on-one battle to overcome opponents’ teams of three “Leaders ,” chosen from a roster of 15 characters with unique skills and abilities, and supporting “Soldiers” that kill at the behest of players’ orders. SUNSOFT is planning regular, free updates to the game, adding new Leaders and fine-tuning the game’s balance. Tight drag-and-drop controls push the real-time strategy (RTS) inspired mechanics even further as players place their units on the map directly while also choosing where to construct any of the five varieties of Towers that each apply different effects on the gameplay.
