Play Batman vs Superman vs many other DC characters in Infinite Crisis’ open beta on March 14

Arrow, Mecha Superman, and Aquaman join the fight.

The DC Comics multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game Infinite Crisis will start its open beta on March 14, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer Turbine have announced.

Warner Bros. also said that it’s adding three new Champions to the game: Green Arrow, Aquaman, and Mecha Superman. That brings Infinite Crisis to a total of 27 playable characters by the time the open beta begins.

Infinite Crisis is set across the 52 universes of the DC multiverse. So far Turbine has shown steampunk and post-apocalyptic-themed stages and characters. The newly announced Mecha Superman, a gigantic robot constructed of a crashed Kryptonian space probe, is a fine example of some of the more esoteric DC characters in the game.

Much like in League of Legends, Infinite Crisis is free-to-play, giving you access to six Champions, three of which rotate out for new champions weekly.

Turbine, which was founded in 1994 and is also responsible for MMO The Lord of the Rings Online, recently announced some layoffs at the studio.

This game could have seriously had the potential to be an awesome title, but Turbine is handling it. I have played every Turbine title I could tolerate and every single one is wooden and archaic at best, and nauseating tripe at the worst. Just picking one flaw that is present in every game: UI. In every title the UI is hands down the worst I have seen in a game, and when you're playing an MMO... UI is *kind of* important.

Batman could never take Superman in a fight. To say otherwise is simply foolish.

played it as well, didnt like it. If the other team has a higher tier hero its pretty much game over

this game will suck, and be nowhere near as good as dota 2.


league of legends is for noobs

dota 2 is for hardcore gamers


take your pick.

@aci808  The problem with Batman vs Superman is people are always choosing sides , not thinking about it.

Superman takes Batman in a second. Wtf is wrong with you Batman fans. I grew up with batman , i still keep my bat cave ( tent ) that i've used more than 20 years ago. Im one of the Biggest Batman fans you can find here.

But still Superman is Superman , there is no way Batman can take Superman.

Here is the real thing.

Batman doest give a shit if he is Alien , human , any lantern corp or amazon. Batman goes all the way to win.

But not Superman , his morality will not let him do such a thing. Ever. Thats the thing. If you are talking abour a RAMPAGE here , superman will take Bruce in a second and it will be over. Thats it.

So in a normal situation which is Bruce is prepped for the situation and superman thinks they are going to argue about something its over for Supes. He'll die. But it never goes to that place.


So RAW fight , there is no way Batman can see the Superman's hit.

But like i said if they are prepped , Batman will take Superman. Thats what he does.

For example , Justice League : Doom. Is it really hard for Batman to use those plans on Justice League members ?

Thats Batman's concept , he knows everything and prepares for every possible solution to stop even himself.

Thanks.

@aci808  Except everything time the go up against each other batman wins...The Batman is the best!

@aci808 Depends. With planning there's a chance Batman could win. Remember, Superman, while strong, IS weak to kryptonite. But if Superman were to flatout come at Batman out of nowhere then yeah, he'd probably be capable of liquidating him with one punch if he wanted.

@Aaronp2k dont like both games because stupid nerdy pc elitist wont give  people a chance to learn how to play a game they are selfish and pig headed.

@Aaronp2k  All 3 of those games are terrible.Call of duty is the worst game ever and i'd rather play that for the rest of my life than LoL, Dota 2 or This crap

@Aaronp2k both games, and MOBAs in general, have terrible communities that are extremely hostile to new players. best option is to play neither

@nyran125tk If I was Superman I would use my heat vision and lobotomize them before they even try...

@deth420 @aci808 Another idiot who has seen the dark knight returns one too many times...

Historically Batman has won twice, Superman has won close to a dozen times...

@DamnILoveGames You have not read "Dark Knight Returns" Comic, have you? You should, so you might reconsider your opinion.

@rarerichz @Aaronp2k  read a guide, or play as a support class. support class is easy you just heal other players, hide in bushes and put down motion sensors. and you can observe other players to find out how they play their classes and learn the game that way.

@rarerichz @Aaronp2k   just play smite. It has mods that are more friendly than dota 2 or lol and in my opinion it takes more skill to master it playing from a 3rd person perspective and having to use keyboard and mouse to move and aim abilities.

@RiKanKiDD @Aaronp2k  the games are not terrible, you just do not understand how to play them lol. in order to be good at the games it takes a tremendous about of teamwork, strategy and most importantly knowing how to actually play the game. lol holds your hand a lot more than dota 2 though.

@Spartan_418 @Aaronp2k  Honestly, I think its luck of the draw.  Both are good games I've met some pretty nice people and some hostile players playing both of those games, although it's usually more hostile players unfortunately.

@gamemaven  if you make a mistake you let your team down. they are going to jump all over you. just like in a real sport your team would not be very happy with you either. people play lol and dota 2 very competitively, they are actually very big games in the exports circuit too. if you aren't competitive, careful, and considerate to other players then maybe you should just stick to cod and not ruin games for others. lol and dota 2 clearly isn't for you.

@Aaronp2k They don't get hostile because you don't know how to play. They get hostile for EVERYTHING. Make a mistake, oh it's over, they're gonna jump all over you because you're suppose to be PERFECT. Other team actually has skill and you die? Yeah that's your fault too.  It's a shit genre with people who pride themselves on playing the same thing over and over. It's stupid and pointless, I rather masturbate.

@Aaronp2k  you just said that LoL is worse than Dota yet you don't play them. what?

@Aaronp2k Isn't that like saying 'just learn how to read music and watch tutorials on how to play the piano and you'll be able to play it, doesn't matter if you've never touched a piano before. First time sitting at it you'll play like Beethoven'? Simply reading about something can only get you so far, you need practice, practice, practice. And how do you get that practice? By playing the game.

@Spartan_418 @Aaronp2k  nah. I just see it from their perspective. they spent their time learning how the game works using guides and so on, so why should they have to teach you because you are too lazy to look for yourself?


I actually do not play them because I cannot be bothered to learn it all, I would rather stick with games I am already good at and not ruin other people's experience on those games.


if you suck at a game where your team requires you to be good either learn the game or just play something else. it is that simple.

Aaronp2k

@rtircoklled @Spartan_418 @Aaronp2k  you do not need community to get good at the games. there are plenty of guides out there. the reason you will find most players are hostile is because you probably suck at the game and the team you are playing on pays the price for you sucking. the game is very competitive, so is it any surprise your team gets pissed at you when you let them down?


read some guides, learn how to play the game like the pros, and you will find a lot less aggression then. they aren't games where you can simply sit down play and learn from your mistakes, they are games where you need to know the do's and don'ts before you play.
