[heading]Strife Gameplay Trailer[/heading]
XAM is a free to play next-generation MOBA game from new developer, LLC AnnGames. The best things about the MOBA is the team-fights, and the team hopes to make the team-fights in XAM as fun as possible. The rounds in XAM last only as long as 10 minutes, and refused to add anything to the game to distract players from the battlefield, like farming, mobs, item management and leveling up.
The basics of the game are extremely simple, you control only your character and your 6 abilities. They use a ground-target system, which means your abilities will not hit the enemies automatically, which means you must plan your attacks and make sure enemies can’t dodge them. In XAM, the skill of the player is the most important aspect, and will be the reason your team wins.
As the game is currently in Early Access, the gameplay and mechanics may change significantly. At the time of this writing the game has 8 characters and 3 different arenas.

[heading]Orcs Must Die! Unchained Trailer[/heading]
A team action game where heroes battle alongside a massive guardian in a fight for supremacy. Join the fight and be one of the first to try Gigantic! A mystical bond connects you and four teammates to your guardian, a magical behemoth too powerful for a single mortal to defeat. Protect your guardian as your team charges across the battlefield, then see it crush your enemies underfoot. Physics-based abilities let you invent new ways to amaze your friends and frustrate your enemies. The element of surprise is key as you use WASD controls to sprint, dodge, aim, destroy barriers, hurdle obstacles, and leap from danger to safety. The world of Gigantic is a world of mystery, where airships soar over ancient ruins and a fantasy empire is yours for the taking. Charge into battle and lead your guardian to victory. Gigantic rewards the daring, the clever, and the swift.
Choose a heavy-metal juggernaut, a stealthy acrobat, a fire-breathing sorcerer—or something else that matches your play style. Pick attack, defense, and just-plain-cool upgrades on the fly, then surprise your enemies with a combo they never saw coming.
Your guardian is the biggest ally you’ll ever have. With your team’s help, the guardian drives back your enemies, destroying and reshaping the battlefield as it goes. But your enemies have a guardian, too! Work together to overpower the enemy guardian, then strike its heart when you have the chance. And beware! Each guardian has its own attacks and tactics–everything from impaling tail spikes to destructive tornadoes.

MOBAS are all the rage today, and that means game companies are pushing them out at record pace. This list is for MOBAs that are to be released here in 2014. Some you’ve heard of, others you haven’t. Enjoy, rate, comment!
Strife is a fun moba that aims to take out the toxicity that plagues the genre. In few words, it’s the team fortress 2 of the MOBA genre. There are pets you can customize colorfully and use their abilities, and heroes themselves also have a ton of character. Strife so far seems to be an all around fun experience that might not be competitive, but it will accomplish what it is setting out for.
[heading]Heroes of the Storm[/heading]
Coming from the powerhouse that is Blizzard, this is one moba that should be expected to change the scene forever. Heroes of the Storm takes all the characters from Blizzard’s past and sums up their might here in this Battle Arena. Expect a unique playing field with novelty and certainly a breath of fresh air between standard mobas and obscure mobas. Heroes of the Storm aims to have unique gameplay while maintaining that same impactful strategic game feel that we know and love.
[heading]Magicka: Wizard Wars[/heading]
Magicka: Wizard Wars has the gameplay of Magicka, but in versus mode. Take your host of spells and mix & match them together with your mix matched team against theirs. High skill cap doesn’t make this game any less fun as spell spam is the name of the game. Certainly there is a competitive atmosphere but Wizard Wars trims down the strategic noise such as towers/jungle/and item purchasing in favor of mechanical strategy and skill.
[heading]Dead Island: Epidemic[/heading]
Epidemic is the MOBA game coming out soon in the Dead Island universe and not only does it fit in, but it expands it. Not only does it have an interesting zombie infested theme, but its gameplay has a bit of flavor to it as well with action being more on the action side and also including co-op modes alongside the normal 5v5. Craft and customize your different characters which include human or infested versions. Dead Island: Epidemic should be a welcome addition to the games namesake and to the moba genre.
A fast paced 3v3 MOBA with tons of customization from what happens on the map with quests and dungeons, to the characters which have tons of cosmetic and playmaking options. It seems this game will carry a heavy rpg focus with items that persist through matches and maybe we’ll even see some form of collecting or crafting. Deadbreed looks refreshing even with its dark atmosphere.
This upcoming moba wants to shine through its action packed character kits which should be familiar to fans of League of Legends. Core Masters promises impactful gameplay within MOBA boundaries though note that this isn’t your average moba and will run on its own very unique rules which is heavily focused towards directly player to player interaction & combat. Core Masters offers us an interesting and eastern aesthetic versus the western scene so prevalent now and so far it looks great.
[heading]Orcs Must Die: Unchained[/heading]
Expect comedy, color and character in this undoubtedly action packed MOBA. Third person action combat and skill shots everywhere, they claim action and we expect action. Place traps and alike traverse enemy traps in this siege warfare battle arena. Graphics look awesome and gameplay promises to be competitive, the hype is real.
[heading]Total War: Arena[/heading]
Total War is known as one of the biggest and most spectacular strategy series but with ARENA players will be able to engage with teammates in a mix of strategy and moba combat against enemy teams and better yet, it’s going to be free to play. While very little is known about Total War: Arena, what we do know is that there is certain potential because of the franchises history to make this one of the best and more unique moba experiences out there.
MOBA and immersion aren’t two things that would normally be very cohesive but Eterlands is attempting to bring as many immersive mechanics into its moba gameplay as possible which is welcome in addition to the normally very arcade genre that is battle arenas. Eterlands promises destructible environments, multiple maps, and a focus on strategic gameplay that should bring something new to the playing field instead of the usual meta.
While Transformers Universe started out as a full on MMO project, Jagex has decided that it wanted to focus on what really matters most instead of infesting a game with filler quests and content. Universe will still have many rpg and mmo aspects to it, but it will also be very much centered around the arena fights. This innovative design should bring in casual players everywhere, especially with the branding of Transformers, and with the deep rpg elements and mmo mechanics, Transformers Universe by Jagex will almost certainly flourish.
Arena of Fate is an upcoming action packed online multiplayer game from Crytek. The game will feature legendary heroes from history and also ones from fantasy, that will battle in a MOBA-like arena. Arena of Fate offers 5 vs. 5 battles featuring characters like Robin Hood, Fenrir the werewolf, Joan of Arc and Nicola Tesla.
More will be revealed at E3 2014, but Crytek has said that an Early Access Beta will begin later in the summer of 2014.
