Ex-Riot Games devs' Vainglory makes MOBAs mobile on iOS
Thought you were safe from the MOBA craze just because you prefer to game on mobile devices? Think again: developer Super Evil Megacorp is bringing their MOBA, Vainglory, to iOS devices this month.

Vainglory simplifies the typical MOBA formula by reducing team size to three (instead of the more common five) and limiting matches to 20 minutes long (not unlike the Crytek MOBA Arena of Fate). There's also only one lane to push against, and the game's controls are based around the touchscreen interface. For more information, there's a basic overview video after the break.

Those living in Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand can already download the game for free, while Europe will gain access on November 13. The North America, South America, Middle East and Africa App Stores will get their versions on November 18. China, Japan and Korea have no announced release date. No matter where you live, you'll need an iPad 2 or later or, if you're playing on your phone, an iPhone 5S or later.

Vainglory is Super Evil Megacorp's first game, the studio itself being comprised of ex-Riot Games, ex-Blizzard and ex-Rockstar developers.
