Vainglory has today opened pre-registration for its upcoming 5v5 mode. The mode has long been discussed and remains in closed beta but would-be players can now pre-register for a chance to enter the Early Access. Kristian Segerstale, Super Evil MegacorpThe upcoming Vainglory 5v5 map has been built ‘from the ground up’ by a team of PC MOBA designers and former competitive players of the title. Super Evil Megacorp CEO Kristian Segerstrale commented: “When we started Super Evil Megacorp, we set out to challenge the notion that mobile-first gamers were somehow inferior to gamers on other platforms.“We believed that every phone was a portable next-gen console, and that every mobile player deserved games just as core, strategic and performant as players on PC. Over the past three years, millions of players across the globe rallied to our cause, embracing real-time multiplayer gaming on touchscreens, shifting the market in our direction.“Fueled by that momentum, our mission now is creating a 5v5 MOBA that is deeply strategic and tactical, with console-grade performance, based on deep, original fantasy and personality-rich storytelling.”According to the press release the 5v5’s closed beta is conducting around-the-clock playtests with ‘players from multiple regions and all skill tiers’.Segerstrale continued: “We have been working closely with our closed beta community to get our 5v5 exactly right, and we will show it off to everyone at our upcoming World Championship in Singapore in December. We will be growing the early-access community as we move toward launch. If you want to be part of the journey putting final touches on 5v5, be sure to pre-register.”During the Vainglory 2017 World Championship event, which is being held at Singapore’s Kallang Theatre in December (14-17), will see the grand reveal of the 5v5 mode to the public. Cloud9 and Rox Armada are the two teams to have qualified for the event to date. Esports Insider says: Exciting news to come out of the Super Evil camp for Vainglory fans, and it’s good to hear they’re waiting to reveal the new mode to the public until it’s been fully tested by both experts and players at all levels.
