After captivating a Korean audience Cronix Online is crossing the seas to bring it’s unique action orientated multiplayer gameplay to the rest of the world. It feels very much like a MOBA experience but offers a wide range of gameplay and a more action focused experience.
The game world is set in the future where the depletion of resources has sparked a world war over energy and thus leading to a number of cataclysmic events that decimate the human population. It’s this dark world which will serve as your battlefield as you choose your favourite character, pick your game mode and go to war with other players.
Gameplay feels very much like Smite with an over the shoulder camera view giving you plenty of view over the battlefield. The character that you take onto this battlefield is completely customisable with players creating something with unique traits and strengths through items and other options.
Most of these characters and their skills are melee focused with a few characters donning huge axes while others prefer to rely on their fists to do the fighting. Each comes with their own skills that deliver a range of devastating damage, effects and even buffs.
Combining the customise characters with the handful of game modes that Cronix Online offers ensures you can try all sorts of combinations to keep the game fresh. You have the option of short 3v3 matches that focus on action and directly killing other players to the more strategic and slow paced 5v5 or 7v7 that can take up to 30 minutes as you capture points and achieve small objectives.
With tight action orientated gameplay and a recent greenlight status on Steam the sky is the limit for Cronix Online. It’s a perfect option for those hooked on MOBAs but wanting something with a bit more in terms of game mode variety.
