League of Legends Dominion
Yea you just saw right. League of Legends will be getting a huge update. This was posted today on their official forums as well as a little info:
Many of you may have been wondering out loud just what we have in store for the future. Today we are pleased to give you your first look at League of Legends: Dominion, the largest game update in the history of League of Legends. This update will feature not only a brand new map, but also an entirely new game mode showcasing innovative gameplay never before attempted in the MOBA genre.
For quite some time, all of you have been clamoring for new battlefields upon which to test your skills against other summoners in League of Legends. We’re pleased to announce that we’ve heard you, and that for over a year our Design Team has been working tirelessly to craft Dominion into a truly new and groundbreaking experience.
On the Crystal Scar players will battle for control of five capture points, holding them to damage their enemies’ nexus. The game ends when one team had seized control long enough to drain the opposing team’s nexus down to zero. Battles last around 20 minutes, and focus on high-intensity, player-versus-player combat. If you’ve been looking for a fast-paced, high-intensity competitive gaming experience, this is what you’ve been waiting for.
We’re taking Dominion on the road during convention season this year, allowing you to get your hands on the new game mode at both Gamescom in Cologne, Germany and PAX Prime in Seattle, Washington! Stay tuned for more details as we draw closer to these exciting events.
To current players this is some of the biggest news ever. The only downside is that there is no current time table for the release. However with Dominion being live at the different conventions maybe we aren’t to far out.
