Infinite Crisis, one of the greatest massive story arcs in the DC universe is being retooled. Retooled, perhaps not the correct word. Let’s go with expanded. Announced today, Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment are entering the expanding massive online battle arena genre with a Turbine-developed title.
Why the announcement wasn’t made during this weekend’s PAX East 2013, which is held in Turbine’s home turf of Boston, is beyond us but the free-to-play PC has us intrigued. Featuring twisted incarnations of the universe’s favorite characters, including Nightmare Batman and Gaslight Catwoman, and safer versions like The Flash, the title will pit famous heroes and villains against each other sometime in 2013.
“The Turbine team is very excited to reveal Infinite Crisis to the world and extend the MOBA genre with new features,” said Jeffrey Steefel, Executive Producer, Turbine. “We are utilizing years of experience in the online game space to deliver innovations to the MOBA genre with a game that features fast-paced action, a major story arc, destructible environments, catastrophic events and a deep roster of iconic DC Comics characters.”
