The giant Amazon wants to enter the world of top-level videogames too. Today, we bring to you its first major title, which intends to overshadow big rivals such as Fortnite, Overwatch, PUBG, and League of Legends.
We are talking about Crucible, a third-person MOBA shooter based on the decisions the team makes. It will be essential to work together as a team to face your opponents and a hostile environment full of alien creatures and permanent challenges.
Players can choose among different hunters, each with a diverse skill set and a full arsenal of weapons. Then, you need to decide which upgrades to unlock as you progress through the game to maximize your abilities and effectiveness. To do this, you need Essence, a substance that you can get by eliminating creatures and opponents.
Play with different hunters like Summer and her flamethrower, the giant Earl and his quadruple cannon, teleport with Tosca, or deploy turrets with the Bugg robot.
For now, this innovative MOBA developed by Amazon Games includes three different game modes:
- Hearts of the Hive: players play against each other four on four. The first team to manage to finish off the drone hives and capture three of the hearts they leave behind wins the game.
- Harvester Command: Two teams of eight hunters fight for control of the territory. To achieve this, they must control the most Essence harvesters on the map while defending those already within their area of influence from enemies. The first team to reach 100 points wins.
- Alpha Hunters: Eight teams of two hunters fight to be the last survivors standing. Alliances with other players are allowed if one of the two members of a team falls, and the alliance is broken when only three are left alive on the battlefield.
