All last week there have been a LOT of hints dropped from the staff at Riot Games regarding the huge announcement that was going to be dropped this week. Today, they were very pleased to give us a look at League of Legends: Dominion, the largest update in the history of League of Legends. This update not only feature a highly anticipated new map, but also an entirely new game mode showcasing innovative gameplay never attempted in the MOBA genre. The design team behind this update have been working diligently for over a year and can’t wait until this “ground breaking” experience goes live.
On the Crystal Scar players will battle for control of five capture points, holding them to damage their enemies’ nexus. The game ends when one team had seized control long enough to drain the opposing team’s nexus down to zero. Battles last around 20 minutes, and focus on high-intensity, player-versus-player combat. If you’ve been looking for a fast-paced, high-intensity competitive gaming experience, this is what you’ve been waiting for.
Check out the trailer below:
Players will have a chance to try out the new Dominion update at GamesCom (August 17-21) in Europe and at PAX Prime (August 26-28) in North America. Dominion will go live to everyone shortly after PAX Prime.
