Big Moxi Games has announced that its upcoming PvE Coop MOBA-like action hero shooter game Wardens Rising has received an Epic MegaGrant from Epic Games. Currently in pre-alpha, the MegaGrant will be used to support the continued development of the IP using Unreal Engine.
Wardens Rising is a new take on multiple genres, blending MOBA-like base defense and hero shooter elements into a uniquely thrilling PvE coop action hero shooter experience.
“Being recognized by Epic Games is an honour. Developing original IP as a self-funded start-up game studio can be challenging and the support of Epic Games through the MegaGrants program will help us realise our vision to deliver an amazing new game experience to the global pc and console market,” said Big Moxi Games president Damon Alberts.
Wardens Rising is an upcoming PvE coop MOBA-like action hero shooter game for PC and Consoles. Currently, in development, the game aims to combine fast-paced action and MOBA-like base defense elements into a thrilling and often intense PvE Coop experience. In Wardens Rising, players must protect energy cores from 100’s of enemies by using their special abilities, deploying a powerful set of items, as well as building and upgrading towers on-the-fly. They also have a SPEC companion, a tech-infused lifeform that helps each Warden in the battlefield. Between invasions heroes can upgrade their abilities and stats as well as unlock and upgrade new content to equip in their technology loadout.
