Dawngate empowers you to forge the champions you love for the roles you want in a competitive arena, shaped by ever-evolving, community-driven content and story.

Dawngate is a multiplayer online battle arena game that features fast-paced team combat and a flexible Meta that lets gamers play their way.

With the freedom to choose a role that isn’t dependent on the player’s choice of Shaper, Dawngate expands its Meta by celebrating personal play styles.

Featuring two teams of five Shapers, two lanes and a huge jungle, the game also introduces unique economy-based objectives like Spirit Wells to create a new strategic landscape. Each match ends with an intense fight against the enemy team and their Guardian, and gives players the chance to earn Blessings from their allies and foes. Blessings are loot drops that reward how well gamers played, and commends them for teamwork and sportsmanship.

Hollywood Music in Media Award winning and three-time HMMA nominated composer Jeff Broadbent (PlanetSide 2) has written and produced an ethereal, magical fantasy score for the new Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) video game DAWNGATE

Broadbent blends soaring melodies, evocative harmony, and a rich tapestry of exotic colors to create an emotional and captivating musical experience. Check out the main theme music here.

"From the early stages of meeting with the development team, observing concept art and reading the backstory, I knew that DAWNGATE was a special game that had immense potential for unique and magical creativity," said composer Jeff Broadbent. "The beauty of the game world and depth of the characters allowed for a great deal of sonic exploration and thematic composition."

"To create the unique sound of this fantasy realm we blended the emotional expression and melodies of the orchestra with exotic and evocative colors such as ethnic winds, glass percussion, harps, and modern hybrid synthetic tones," explains Broadbent.

In addition to scoring video games, Broadbent's music features on prime-time television networks such as CBS, MSNBC, Discovery Channel, National Geographic and VH1. His latest projects include the hybrid trailer music album "Enemy Below", featured in blockbuster movie trailers such as Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, as well as original scores for upcoming video games LEGO Legends of Chima Online and Tom Clancy's EndWar Online.
