Spacetime Studios has announced their next game — Call of the Champions!

Creators of hit mobile MMORPGs like Arcane Legends and Pocket Legends, Spacetime Studios says Call of Champions will be a free-to-play MOBA-themed fantasy game and, what's more, it will be released for the iPhone and iPad sometime this year.

In the Call of Champions arena, players will be able to control one out of over twenty different Champions across five distinct classes, each coming equipped with their own unique playstyle and special abilities. Players will be immersed in a fiction that takes place in a time beyond the cosmos as they take on the role of a godlike entity that controls Champions in the arena for sport.

Call of Champions is a next-generation MOBA designed for competitive gamers with tablets and mobile devices. Matches have a 5-minute limit in order to deliver exhilarating action and swift outcomes in each session while enabling players to enjoy quick games on the go. With competition in mind, Call of Champions features an expansive social toolset for players to recruit team members, plan matches, earn achievements and loot through the Call of Champions social hub, plus view or broadcast matches live.

Spacetime Studios will show off Call of Champions next week at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. People who attend the South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas from March 13-15 will also be able to get some hands-on time with the game before it's officially launched.
