Vainglory has opened global pre-registration to allow players to sign up for a chance to play Vainglory’s forthcoming 5 v 5 mode.

Currently the mobile MOBA only supports six players in 3 v 3 matches, however Super Evil Megacorp has claimed that it’s 5 v 5 mode has been created from the ground up by former competitive players and designers from leading PC MOBAs, and will be the definitive MOBA experience for mobile users. 

“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,” said Super Evil Megacorp CEO Kristian Segerstrale in a statement.

“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.”

The next step is “round-the-clock” playtesting with players from all skill tiers from all around the world. Players should sign up on the website for a chance to participate

“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,” said Segerstrale. “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!”

The Vainglory 2017 World Championship takes place at Singapore’s Kallang Theatre from December 14 to 17.
