Vainglory is arguably the world’s leading esport, and it’s about to get even more intense. Today, Oct. 26, the developers behind the game opened up preregistration for a new, even more massive multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA). The team behind the most competitive 3v3 MOBA experience is expanding that battle with a new 5v5 arena.
Created By Players, for Players
The upcoming Vainglory 5v5 arena was built from the ground up by players just like you. These former competitive gamers, along with designers from leading PC MOBAs, got together to come up with a huge map that rewards mechanical skill and meaningful decisions. It also relies upon smart team compositions, objectives, and rotational strategies.

With all of that said, it’s still Vainglory. That means precise controls and gorgeous graphics optimized for your iOS device, whether you’re playing on an iPhone or an iPad. The developer behind Vainglory, Super Evil Megacorp, maintains its mission to treat mobile devices the same as console gaming systems. That means games “just as core, strategic and performant” as titles you’d find on a PC, Xbox, or Playstation.
The 5v5 Battle Experience
The momentum of Vainglory’s success in 3v3 MOBA gaming has spurred Super Evil Megacorp to go even further. Its mission now is to create a rich 5v5 arena that is deeply strategic and tactical, while maintaining the console-grade performance Vainglory is renowned for. The battle will also feature deep, original fantasy and personality-rich storytelling, which is rare in MOBA battles.
The massive Vainglory 5v5 MOBA is coming soon, encouraging players to preregister early
A 5v5 closed beta has been conducting around-the-clock play tests, featuring gamers from all over the world and with varying skill levels. Now, the arena is ready for players and teams to preregister.
The Massive 5v5 Battles Are Coming Soon
Super Evil Megacorp plans to unveil the 5v5 map and experience in December 2017. During Vainglory’s 2017 World Championship in Singapore, a global audience of millions will get their first glimpse of the new map.
The developer says that if you want to be part of the early-access community putting the final touches on the 5v5 experience, you should preregister. While the beta may be coming to a close, Vainglory is still planning to open the testing to more players pulled from the preregistration slots. If you want to preregister for the 5v5 arena, you just have to go to the Super Evil Megacorp website.
