Mobile MOBA Vainglory Launches Cross Play Compatible PC Client, Available on Steam Now
Super Evil Mega Corp, the developers behind the Vainglory, released a cross platform compatible PC client for their hit 5v5 MOBA. The game is already available on Steam and has hit over 800 concurrent players in the first day. Kristian Segerstrale, CEO of Super Evil Megacorp, stated that they want to give gamers the chance to experience Vainglory on any platform they wish. While the game was built for mobile devices, the PC client seems to run great according to early reviews.
I suspect playing on the PC version will be advantageous over mobile, especially since the game has complex mechanics like last hitting and active items. While Vainglory has found success on mobile devices in the West, it's still overshadowed by Tencent's Arena of Valor in the East. A PC launch may give Vain Glory a huge boost as hardcore Western gamers haven't embraced mobile as quickly as those in China, South Korea, and Japan.
