Fantastic, real-time MOBA game Vainglory has just made the move up to version 1.1.5, adding a number of new features.
The biggest improvement is a new hero – Skaarf. According to the release notes, he is a little dragon that packs a big punch focusing on long-range and area-of-effect damage during battles. Skaarf also can spit a fireball that deals crystal damage to the first enemy in its path.
He can even slow down enemies by hurling goop onto a target location.
Players can now host up to six players into a party for private battles. Users can select any number of players up to six, including single-player duels and more.
There are two separate versions of the game to download on the App Store now – Vainglory for iPhone and Vainglory, which is designed for the larger screens of the iPad and iPad mini. Both are free, but they do contain in-app purchases.
After first being shown off at the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch introductory event in September, the title finally landed a few weeks ago.
While I’m not exactly a big MOBA fan, I’ve really enjoyed playing Vainglory. It’s absolutely beautiful on my iPhone 6 Plus and a blast (both literally and figuratively).
Vainglory was also featured in a recent iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus commercial from Apple starring Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake.
