S2 Games, the developer of popular Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) game Heroes of Newerth, has begun the closed beta for their 2nd generation MOBA – Strife.
While Strife follows some of the basic mechanics of a MOBA, S2 Games have focused on mitigating some of the frustrating elements that have become common in the genre including resource distribution, role flexibility, and player toxicity. According to S2 Games, “Strife is focused on giving players an environment where they’re competing with enemies, not their own teammates.”
“Each part of our development process has been marked by intense planning, calculated execution and iterative design informed by feedback,” said Marc DeForest, CEO of S2 Games. “A natural part of this process is to solicit feedback from a slowly but steadily increasing portion of our fan base to ensure that the game we are creating resonates with our community.”
Strife is scheduled to officially launch sometime in 2014 and will be completely free-to-play.
In celebration of the Strife closed beta, we’re giving away FIVE (5) beta keys right here on the site. Just follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter module below to get a chance to play in the Strife closed beta.
