'Dawngate' Community Beta Open To All - Trailer

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.

Electronic Arts and Waystone Games announced that all players can now enter the Dawngate by joining the Community Beta. Starting today, players can simply register, download the game to their PC and enter the Community Beta.

Waystone Games will be offering a hands-on experience of Dawngate at the Penny Arcade Expo EAST in Boston from Apr. 11-13. In addition to the friendly competition in the PC Room, there will be opportunities to meet the Waystone Games development team and celebrate the official launch of the online graphic novel, The Dawngate Chronicles, with artist Nicholas Kole. Plus, players can attend the Dawngate Panel, and all PAX East attendees will be receiving an exclusive bonus skin in their registration bags. Those unable to attend the show can stay connected throughout the event by watching the live stream.

“We wanted Dawngate to look and feel like a true MOBA experience, but add something fresh and new to the core design by offering a flexible Meta to gameplay,” said Dave Cerra, Lead Producer on Dawngate. “We feel that giving players the freedom to tailor each Shaper’s role to their own personal play style makes a powerful impact in the overall experience and sets Dawngate apart.”

This Friday will mark the official launch of the new interactive online graphic novel, The Dawngate Chronicles. Brought to life through lush line-work and gorgeous color, The Dawngate Chronicles is a unique interactive story that Waystone Games will author in collaboration with the players. With every game played, the Dawngate community will guide how the story unfolds to dictate the fate of everything, from their favorite characters to entire nations – even driving the addition of new content directly back into the game.
