The newly announced F2P MOBA Total War: Arena is less DOTA and more MOBA, according to its Lead Designer. Creative Assembly goes to great lengths assuring players the experience is true to what they’ve come to expect from Total War, and not aping the popular wave of DOTA-like games.
“This is not a MOBA-game,” lead multiplayer designer Gabor Beressy explained following a GDC session. “It’s not a DOTA clone. How do you define a MOBA game? If you just say it’s a multiplayer online battle arena, yes, it is. But it is Total War, so it’s not a DOTA 2 clone. We’re not going to have lanes and creeps and towers.”
