Vainglory 5v5 is finally around the corner: Vainglory today officially opened pre-registration for its upcoming 5v5 mode! Players can now pre-register at 5v5.vainglorygame.com for exclusive rewards and a chance to enter the 5v5 Early Access.
The upcoming Vainglory 5v5 map, built from the ground up by former competitive players and designers from leading PC MOBAs, is aiming to become the definitive 5v5 MOBA experience on mobile. While very few details have been revealed up to this point, the 5v5 mode is said to be designed to reward mechanical skill and meaningful decisions around team compositions, objectives and rotational strategies — all while ensuring the most precise controls and the most beautiful graphics optimized across the widest range of devices.
“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. “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.”
Vainglory 5v5’s closed beta is conducting around-the-clock playtests with players from multiple regions and all skill tiers.
“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!”
A number of existing Vainglory teams are already jumping on board the 5v5 bandwagon: Tribe Gaming have already announced via Twitter their upcoming 5v5 roster will feature existing players DnZio, TTigers, MaxGreen, Xeclair along with none other than team owner Chief Pat! Is this an indication that the entire Vainglory competitive scene will switch from 3v3 to 5v5? And how much difference can we expect from the 5v5 game mode? Stay tuned for more details as they become available!
