Dark Nexus Arena Is in Your Genre Breaking Your MOBAs

Dark Nexus Arena Breaks the MOBA by Banking on Skillshots

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - September 10, 2015) - WHITEBOX INTERACTIVE has broken all the rules of what the MOBA gaming genre is. MOBAs have seen many newcomers to the platform, but WARHAMMER 40,000: DARK NEXUS ARENA is poised to destroy them all. What makes Warhammer 40,000: Dark Nexus Arena so special? By mixing the WASD movement control scheme of a first-person-shooter with skill shot based attacks, Whitebox Interactive has created a game that is intuitive and engaging on a level that cannot be matched. It is a frenzied online multiplayer bloodbath, a fast-paced kill-or-be-killed game. Dark Nexus Arena has struck a balance between simple mechanics that will please the casual player while still requiring real skill, twitch reflexes, and tactical awareness -- all of which is designed to build and hold the interest of players from all over the world.

As a part of building that interest, Whitebox Interactive is giving away 10,000 keys starting September 10th 2015 in a team up with Alienware. This overlaps with the Developer's "Mega Stream" on Saturday September 12, 2015, 12pm PDT, which they intend to host on their twitch.tv channel. This twitch.tv stream, http://www.twitch.tv/whiteboxinteractive, also doubles as their developer vlog. The game is currently set to be released late fourth quarter of this year.

"Disrupting the MOBA genre is a core business decision, we have to if we are going to get a foothold in this industry," Jonathan Falkowski, CEO of Whitebox Interactive, says. As a long-time fan of the tabletop game, Jonathan is committed to a vision of Warhammer 40k that honors the source and gives it something new.

Whitebox Interactive sees E-Sports as a new economic vehicle, taking video games to the same degree of respect and profitability as major league sports. The vision they see is quickly coming to pass, with several gaming leagues equaling major league sports for profitability. Building on the foundation set by DOTA 2 and League of Legends, Dark Nexus Arena is hand crafted to support competitive play and the team at Whitebox Interactive is already recruiting clans to participate.
