Trans-Galactic Tournament is a Free-to-Play MOBA Coming Soon to PS4

April 16, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

A fast-paced and free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) “designed and optimized for PS4,” Trans-Galactic Tournament was announced today for PlayStation 4, with a release coming “soon.”

Developed by Kiz Studios and Hibernum Creations, Trans-Galactic Tournament is described as ” faster than almost any MOBAs you’ve played” and “as much a love-letter to the FPS deathmatches of our youth as any MOBA.”

Featuring 4v4 team strategy, Trans-Galactic Tournament will launch with three modes:

  • Plunderball is Capture-the-Flag meets Thunderdome.
  • Conquest is our many-headed Hydra mutation of King-of-the-Hill, where the challenge isn’t capturing Control Points, it’s keeping them.
  • And Deathmatch, well– look, we gave our Champs fists for a reason.

David Bednar of Kiz Studios talked about the combat:

TGT’s combat isn’t the stand-and-click mathfest of other MOBAs. In TGT, a well-timed hit can blast an opponent over a ravine for a one-hit kill, and the best players can parkour over obstacles with well-timed jumps- or even use opponents as platforms to reach shortcuts or chase down fleeing enemies! Every option is tightly balanced: whether you’re a beginner or a veteran, victory’s only factor is how you play. There’s no in-match levelling; instead, our Champions are customizable outside of battle to suit your unique play style.

In addition to launching with three multiplayer modes, six arenas, and 10 Champions, a free weekly Champ rotation lets you test out new fighters. As well, “Every Champion and stat-altering item can be unlocked through play – it’s how our devs do it, anyway.”

Post-launch, there will be more Champions, arenas, and modes, with PlayStation Plus members receiving exclusive free content.
