Vainglory, the multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) shown off onstage at this year’s iPhone announcement, just got solid release dates in every region but China, Japan and Korea.
Starting a week from today, Vainglory will arrive on the iPhone and iPad in Europe. The game will run on the iPad 2 or newer or the iPhone 5s, 6 or 6 Plus. On November 18, the game will roll out in North America, South America, Middle East and Africa. Developer Super Evil Megacorp only says that it will arrive in the last remaining regions “later.”
Last week I wrote about my experiences playing Vainglory at its developer’s offices. I think it’s a great MOBA, but didn’t get to play on servers filled with people playing from North America or on older iPads or the iPhone. Check TechCrunch on the North American launch day for my thoughts on how it performs on the iPhone 6 Plus.
