Paul Lilly

Play as popular DC Comics characters reimagined, such as Nightmare Batman.

Turbine Entertainment is developing an all-new multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game featuring a deep roster of DC Comics characters, Warner Bros. Entertainment and DC Entertainment announced today. It's called Infinite Crisis , a free-to-play game in which you'll battle other players in the DC Multiverse using a wide variety of heroes and villains that are "twisted incarnations" of their regular selves, such as Nightmare Batman and Gaslight Catwoman.

"The Turbine team is very excited to reveal Infinite Crisis to the world and extend the MOBA genre with new features," said Jeffrey Steefel , Executive Producer, Turbine. "We are utilizing years of experience in the online game space to deliver innovations to the MOBA genre with a game that features fast-paced action, a major story arc, destructible environments, catastrophic events and a deep roster of iconic DC Comics characters."

In addition to the ones already mentioned, some of the characters you'll get to play as include Green Lantern, Poison Ivy, Shazam, Wonder Woman, Zatanna, Gaslight Joker, Flash, Doomsday, and others. You'll contend with catastrophic events that reshape the map as part of an evolving storyline, and even the environment itself can become a weapon.

The game is scheduled to release to PC sometime later this year. In the meantime, you can sign up for a chance to participate in the beta. Also check out the short trailer below and let us know what characters you'd like to see included.
