New MOBA Deadbreed from ex-Just Cause dev rises from the grave

Monday, 6th January 2014 08:11 GMT By Matt Martin

This is the first in-game footage of Deadbreed, a new MOBA from a team led by ex-Just Cause developer Stefan Ljungquist, and due for release this year.

The game offers tactical 3v3 battles online or versus AI opponents, and a team chosen Sentinel becomes the endgame bossfight challenge.

“I wanted to play a MOBA where I could totally customize how my hero looked and, more importantly played, but I couldn’t find one,” said Ljungquist, developer at the Stockholm based studio.

“Talking to friends, I realized I wasn’t the only one wanting this, so we decided to make it. Also, this was our chance to make a darker themed MOBA for hardcore gamers like ourselves and bring in some additional RPG gameplay features,” added Ljungquist, who also has a background in pen and paper RPG design.

The free-to-play PC game is going through Steam’s Greenlight process now, and you can sign up for a chance to get on the beta at the official website. One to watch.

    Seems redundant. DotA2 has pretty extensive cosmetic customization and almost all MOBAs let you choose how your character plays through your loadout.
