S2 games released Strife, a new game using a multiplayer online battle arena format. Players enter the arena in teams in order to compete against other teams to earn the right to join the army of the light.
According to an S2 press release, Strife picks up where previous incarnations of its multiplayer online battle arena, also known as action-strategy games, left off. As a pvp-oriented game, it will not appeal to everyone. Unfortunately, it does not offer any player versus environment scenarios. Players earn experience by defeating members of the opposing team in the arena..
Gamers who wish to participate in Strife's closed beta will need to send an e-mail to the company using the Strife website. Participants who are selected to participate in the beta will receive a code that will allow the recipient to enter the closed beta.
Visitors to the Strife website can get an idea about the game's graphics by visiting Strife's website. Many of the races look like they are taken out of other massively mutiplayer online games, including an elf avatar that resembles the night elves from World of Warcraft.
