A Game Where You Can Play As Vampire Batman Could Be eSports’ Next Hit

There are lots of new MOBAs trying to enter the space but one stands out above them all and that is Turbine’s Infinite Crisis. This DC MOBA does not stray too far from the standard MOBA formula — which is the three lane format (with bottom, middle, and top lanes) seen more commonly in games like League of Legends and Dota 2 — but the addition of DC’s wide range of superheroes really sets this one apart.

In today’s video I break down the basics of Infinite Crisis and discuss its potential in the eSports scene.

  • If any game is to succeed in E-Sports, the three things it needs is the Game itself to be of a competitive standard, the Presentation needs to be there for the spectator, and the Community needs to be there to represent and support there game. So far The presentation looks good, hopefully spectator functions are there. We will have to wait and see what the other 2 parts do. An old game with a new coat of paint won’t be enough for players to shift over, CS: Source proved that just under 10 years ago. It needs something to differentiate itself, the DC character additions won’t be what makes it an esport.
