Vainglory, the Apple Award-winning MOBA from San Francisco-based Super Evil Megacorp, will be re-launched on the 2nd July with a host of new features, including Android support.
Coming seven months after the game first arrived on iOS, and being pitched as 'Vainglory 1.0', the updated title promises a host of new features intended to help newbies get the hang of it and support the game's existing community.
For players entering the game for the first time, there will be improved tutorials, access to a back catalogue of instructional videos on all character classes, and AI bots to help them learn the ropes.
Meanwhile, existing players may be interested to hear that an improved social system that includes pings, parties, and in-game chat is on the way – resolving a problem we identified when initially reviewing the game post launch.
Furthermore, the game will boast new skins for heroes, a card-based in app-purchase system to reward players with new content, and spectator modes to support the game's burgeoning e-sport community.
Finally, Vainglory will be available on Android and support 150 different devices. It’ll also include cross OS play, meaning that you can play alongside friends (or foes) boasting iOS devices.
Super Evil Megacorp will be running a 24 hour celebratory stream across the world on launch day, which will kick off in the morning San Francisco time. Hosted by DJ Wheat and featuring notable Twitch streamers, the UK leg of the launch stream will kick off at 10:00pm on Thursday.
