Master X Master is a free-to-play action MOBA with a Tag System that allows you to quickly swap between two characters mid-combat.

With a diverse selection of 30 powerful Masters to choose from — including brand new characters as well as a selection of known characters from NCSOFT titles like Blade & Soul and Guild Wars 2 — there are hundreds of different Master combinations available, offering a new level of strategy and tactics not seen in other MOBAs.

Challenge opponents with a deadly fusion of Masters in beautifully crafted battlegrounds. Fight in a variety of PvE & PvP modes or bring up to four friends with you into the co-op story. With a diverse selection of over 30 Masters, together with the innovative Tag System, there are hundreds of different Master combinations available, offering a new level of strategy, combos, and tactics.

Death is no longer an inevitability in MXM with the release of the newest Master, Titus, available beginning today. The latest character addition to NCSOFT’S recently-released MOBA is a pure support character with healing abilities and specializing in team fighting, and is the third new character released since the game launched in June. Also arriving with today’s update is the new game mode, Natium Defense Line, which gives players an incredibly difficult co-op challenge where they will need to defend their base against waves of enemies to climb the leaderboards and earn additional monthly rewards.

Titus was a scrapper who was captured by slavers and forced to work the mines of a destroyed planet’s remains. During his rescue, a section of the mine caved in and Titus found an ancient shrine to a long forgotten deity. Upon lifting her tome from the altar, he became a vessel of Nura and dedicated his new power to helping others. While not possessing much in the way of offensive abilities, he is a strong support character and a welcome addition for any major group battle. His basic attack can be charged to create a healing field for allies, and his abilities can provide movement speed increases, additional healing, and his ultimate even defies death, granting players a buff that will instantly heal them for 50-70% of their health if it drops to zero while active.

The new game mode, Natium Defense Line, is an end-game co-op challenge for five players. They must guard the Natium Defense Core against 30 waves of increasingly difficult enemies. But it’s not just grit and determination that will bring about victory, as some enemies require specific damage types to be defeated. Coordination, skill, communication and teamwork are the factors that will bring about a successful run, with plenty of rewards.

Both of these updates are available beginning today, along with a number of other changes to MXM’s in-game systems.

Master X Master is free-to-play (with micro-transactions) and as a free player you will get two starting Masters unlocked, a free rotation of Masters with additional details on the rotation to be announced later.

Players will not have to spend money to be competitive in PvE or PvP modes in-game, but earn items offered for sale in the store including unlocking new Masters and new skins, consumable items and more.
