Zynga introduces a fast-and-furious fighting arena with Solstice Arena

On June 21, 2013

Zynga has chosen Solstice Arena as its flag bearer in the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA), a gaming arena defined by hardcore titles and midcore games.

Solstice Arena has iOS exclusivity and brings multiplayer battles in a design where each battle is short and quick, lasting only five to12 minutes. This makes it the world’s first speed MOBA. The San Francisco-based developer has done away with farming and minions, in the process achieving an entirely new genre focused squarely on combat. Three-vs-three battles have taken centre stage although you will still access single and multiplayer coop combat against the bots.

Solstice Arena also features a matchmaking and queue system that is developed to group players on the basis of their level, skill, and hero abilities. At launch, the game will come with 10 customizable heroes specially designed for various playing styles. This is a game capable of meeting the demands of mobile players and Zynga is hoping that the speed-focus will be a real game changer.
