Hands-on with Fates Forever, the MOBA designed exclusively for tablet gaming

By , on July 8, 2014

For my money, Solstice Arena is currently the best MOBA-on-the-move, but that might well all change soon, as I've been playing Fates Forever, and it's pretty special.

The first thing you'll notice when you hit that play button below is how pretty this thing is. Fates Forever draws from a painterly palette, and its 3D models and animation are top-tier.

But it's the gameplay that shines the brightest.

Everything about it feels custom-made for touchscreen gaming, with a responsive and sensibly laid-out UI, ten minute matches, and solid multiplayer.

Have a watch of our hands-on video and then let me know if you think MOBAs are a good fit for tablets (and mobiles) in the comments.

I enjoy Dota 2 on Steam since assholes at EA shut down the masterpiece 'Rise of the Witch King' servers, it scratches the genre itch.

Having a Dota-like game for the mobile is pretty amazing actually. Wished I could try this but not avail. in Canada...

Idk. I kinda like Solstice Arena better. It takes up less space and has a simpler UI, from what I've played.

I really like this, though I agree that Solstice Arena is great too. Is there space on mobiles and tablets for two (or more) MOBAs, though?

There should be space. From what I remember, Solstice Arena takes only 300-400MB(ish) and Fates Forever takes about 600MB? I don't remember exactly. Lol.

Or did you mean this in the "There can only be one!" sense? Lol.
