Karlsruhe, 19.02.2014 – Online games publisher Gameforge and Austria’s leading game developer, Sproing, present Sigils: Battle for Raios, a Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) for tablet devices. Featuring a distinct, atmospheric art style and a variety of characters and arenas, the free-to-play title unites MOBA and RPG elements to create thrilling single and multiplayer matches.

Battle is calling

Intense multiplayer battles in a wide variety of arenas form the centrepiece to Sigils: Battle for Raios. Thanks to the intelligent matchmaking system, there’ll always be a suitable opponent to face off against in the next battle. It is also possible for players to team up with friends in order to go up against other Champions or against computer controlled AI monsters.

Sigils: Battle for Raios is designed to be easy for everybody to pick up and play, whilst also offering added depth for expert players, and broad range of tactical possibilities.

Unique Champions with impressive abilities

All Champions have their own personal abilities that they combine in a variety of ways for attack and defence. Ranging from huge tanks, through to dynamic damage dealers to potent support classes – for every gameplay style there is a matching Champion. From launch, 20 different combatants available for selection, with further Champions being integrated in future updates.

Sigils: Battle for Raios is based in a highly detailed fantasy world complete with an extensive background story which unfolds throughout the game. RPG elements are woven into Champions who gain experience and level-up over successive rounds of playing. In addition, players defeat opponents to loot gold or valuable equipment with which they can permanently improve their Champion and also personalise them according to their own desires.

Extensive player statistics and leaderboards make detailed analysis and comparison possible, adding countless incentives.

For additional insight into the production of Sigils: Battle for Raios, Tim Campbell - Vice President, Third Party Development is available for interviews.
