Development History / Background:

Master X Master is South Korean MMORPG developer/publisher NCSOFT's first MOBA/AoS title and was likely inspired by Blizzard's Heroes of the Storm. Many of the game's playable "Masters" (champions/heroes) are drawn from other well known NCSoft franchises including Aion, Lineage, WildStar, and Blade & Soul.

NCSOFT has added a few compelling features to help Master X Master stand out including considerable cooperative PvE content and the Tag Team system in which players pick two characters at the start of each match and can swap between them at will.

The Global English version of Master x Master shut down on January 31, 2018.
