Turbine's latest MOBA now features a two-lane tower defense mode, in which players battle for control over the Doomsday Device and the fate of Coast City.
Turbine has been working hard to bring their game up to par in order to compete with other powerful MOBAs such as League of Legends or DOTA 2. Now in closed beta, Infinite Crisis first received major attention when it announced an official partnership with MLG, and has been a conversation piece for MOBA and MMO gamers over the last few weeks. This morning, Turbine added fodder to the rumor mill, announcing a new, two-lane game mode, called Coast City.
Coast City is a tower defense style map, featuring "several new exciting elements unique to the MOBA genre". Between the two major lanes is an area called The Wastes, which contains neutral monsters as well as a powerful neutral objectives, including the ominously titled Doomsday Device. The Doomsday Device becomes available every few minutes, and allows the team that captures it to blast powerful attacks against enemy structures, or even enemy champions.
The map also contains Power Relays, which grant patrolling vision into the wastes, allowing smart teams to snoop on their opponents and jump on opportunities (and unsuspecting foes).
Fans who are interested in signing up for the closed beta of Infinite Crisis can go to their beta website. With two interesting maps and a host of mechanics that are brand new to the MOBA genre, Turbine has got a lot of power behind them for closed beta and launch.
