Arena of Valor, the smash-hit MOBA that has taken the world by storm, will be holding a closed beta on Nintendo Switch this summer. If you've been looking for a truly competitive strategy game or MOBA to scratch that PvP itch, look no further. You can sign up for the beta by completing this survey.
The Arena of Valor beta has already come and gone for European players, so this will be the second time that the game has been tested overseas. For North American players, however, this will be our first exposure to Arena of Valor running on a console. The game has been out for a while on iOS and Android, where you can currently download it and play for free. If you're at all interested or intrigued, I suggest you do that straight away.
I've had a ton of fun with Arena of Valor, and I've enjoyed tens of hours of intense competitive gameplay on mobile. I've also been able to attain a huge roster of heroes, and power up a few mains, without spending a single penny. The rewards and progression systems are extremely generous, especially for regular players, and we have a feeling that once you get hooked, you will become a regular player.
This is basically a streamlined, re-imagined League of Legends with DC Comics superheroes and shorter match times. If you missed out on the League of Legends craze and feel overwhelmed by that community, then Arena of Valor may be just the ticket. This is pure, 5v5 MOBA goodness without compromise. Not only will you meet an enormous, original roster of heroes to learn and master, but you'll also get to take control of DC heroes like Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman.
