Spacetime Studios’ upcoming MOBA Call of Champions will start its Alpha program today, which is essentially the very first round of testing with people outside of the company. This includes the recently announced trio of ex-pro League of Legends players who have been brought on board as consultants in the development of this game.
If you missed our previous coverage regarding the former pro League of Legends players, Spacetime Studios has brought James “PhantomL0rd” Varga, Joedat “Voyboy” Esfahani and Stephen “Snoopeh” Ellis on board as consultants to ensure that Call of Champions ends up being a good MOBA. The Alpha testing program will include those three players as well as other elite gamers and members of the industry to form a small group of testers for this first round.
Being in this group comes with some pretty interesting rewards. Call of Champions Alpha testers will receive special permanent in-game rewards to commemorate their role as being a part of this group of MOBA experts. On top of that, members of this group will also be eligible to participate in the first Spacetime Invitational Tournament for Call of Champions at the end of the Alpha period.
While we wait to find out who ends up being in this group of Alpha testers, Spacetime Studios has released a new behind-the-scenes video from when they held their SXSW Call of Champions tournament, which you can check out below. If you want to learn more about Call of Champions, you can check out our previous coverage including our hands-on at GDC 2015. Call of Champions is slated for release sometime this year, more than likely in the Summer.
