A Look at BigWorld-Powered Realm of the Titans’ “Titan’s Eye” Map

Sunday, May 13th, 2012, posted by Kris

from the Titans desk

A while back, we shared a post regarding the announcement of BigWorld-Powered Realm of the Titans‘ “Titan’s Eye” map. Here, I’m going to talk about the features of this unique map a little more in detail.

The first aspect that breaks it from the generic DotA map mold is that there are only two lanes. With it being a 5v5 map, having only two lanes will breed a lot more chaos than from a traditional three lane map.

By having a more limited number of lanes, there will be a higher opportunity for battles, and in-turn, more opportunity for death. Aeria knows this, so they are giving the map an alternate win condition. While you can still push to the enemies’ base and destroy their “tower” to win, on this map getting to 66 kills will also give your team the winner’s spot.

Another one of the most important aspects of this map is the new Rune Altar system implemented in it. Throughout the map you will come across “Rune Altar” structures, and by clicking on them they will yield you one of many enhancements. Each enhancement has a specific color, with the list detailed below.

  • Orange – increases magic damage
  • Purple – 500 experience
  • Blue – double physical damage
  • Red – haste
  • Green – mana/health regeneration increase
  • Yellow – 350 gold

This is a fresh take on the commonly-trite DotA formula, and we’re glad to be behind it.

Realm of the Titans closed beta key give-away

from the titans dept.

Aeria Games and Games Radar have partnered up for a beta key give-away for BigWorld-powered Realm of the Titans.

The DotA-inspired title went into beta a couple days ago.

Go snatch up a key.

“You can choose to not care about RotT… or you can, like me, look forward to playing another MOBA that attempts to build on DotA, instead of retreading ground that’s already been covered. Right now, this is my most anticipated game of 2011.” – PC Gamer

“If you like DotA-inspired games, Realm of the Titans has given a very good show. It’s got a great variety of seemly well-balanced heroes … The Titans have a lot going for them in sheer volume and different abilities permitting a lot of range of play styles. The map is vast, pretty and well defined with points of interest … which should make strategizing something that well-oiled teams do as they roll over the enemy.” – GameOgre

“By combining familiar DotA and League of Legends gameplay elements, Titans looks to carve out a niche for MOBAs where players can have a hard-core DotA-like experience… with the customization experience found in LoL’s masteries and summoner spells.” – MMOHut
