Sci-fi RTS Moba Supernova Launches into Open Beta


Sci-fi RTS / Moba mix Supernova enters open beta today after closed beta ended ~3 months ago. Developed by Primal Game Studios and published by Bandai Namco, Supernova aims to differentiate itself from other MOBAs by having a unique emphasis on upgrading minions. Despite its relatively small playerbase in closed beta, the game did feel polished, which leads me to believe they may have a chance in the ultra competitive MOBA market, which is currently dominated by League of Legends, DotA 2, Heroes of the Storm, and SMITE.

Much has changed since closed beta to better streamline the newcomer experience. The most significant change is probably the ability to automatically choose recommended upgrades for minions, which makes the game much easier for beginners.
