Infinite Crisis is set across the 52 universes of the DC multiverse, and promises map-altering events across various DC locations. So far Turbine has promised steampunk and post-apocalyptic themed stages. Map-specific interactive elements, such as throwing cars or calling down meteor showers, are also mentioned.

The roster announced so far includes familiar DC characters alongside some alternative takes on iconic heroes. 12 characters have been shown: Nightmare Batman, Doomsday, Flash, Gaslight Batman, Gaslight Catwoman, Gaslight Joker, Green Lantern, Poison Ivy, Shazam (aka Captain Marvel), The Joker, Wonder Woman, and Zatanna.

Each character in Infinite Crisis comes with one passive skill and four active abilities, one of which appears to be an ultimate.

The class types on show in Infinite Crisis at the moment fit into traditional MOBA archetypes: Assassin, Bruiser, Marksman, Blaster, Support, and Enforcer.

Turbine also says that Infinite Crisis will contain an unfolding story line developed in partnership with DC Entertainment.

Warner Bros. Interactive and Turbine Studios, the developer behind the Lord of the Rings Online, have announced the Free-to-Play DC Comics MOBA Infinite Crisis. The game will be released later this year, and it will also have a beta before release. They haven’t announced if it is going to be a payed beta, which for some reason is so popular these days.

The popular idie adventure platformer, Fez, is coming to Steam on May 1. A listing on the Steam website lited the game’s release date, but no price or pre-order info is available as of yet. Fez sold over 100,00 copies on Xbox Live Arcade, but because of a dispute over certification, the game has a bug that will wipe game saves. So, if you were waiting for a version of the game that won’t devastate you with a save wipe, your time will soon be here.
