EA Takes a Crack at First MOBA Dawngate: Registration for Closed Beta Open
A Tweet this morning from Kotaku columnist Superannuation discovered a homepage for EA’s yet to be announced Multiple Online Battle Arena title Dawngate.

Waystone Games first game, the official site describes Dawngate as an MOBA “built from the ground up to look and feel familiar while offering a whole new way to experience MOBA gameplay.”
“Dawngate empowers you to forge the champions you love for the roles you want in a competitive arena, shaped by ever-evolving, community-driven content and story,” the site says.
Registration is open and users can sign-up for the Dawngate beta from the website though it requires an account with EA’s Origin platform. Dawngate’s Twitter account is currently protected and the YouTube channel lacks any video.
Not much is known about Waystone Games outside of calling themselves “sincere students of games; what they are, what they have been, what they can become.”
“No matter where you're going on your own journey in gaming, there are always people who've gone before you. They mark the path, leaving waystones to let you know that there's something good this way: a road worth traveling. That's our goal: to mark a road worth traveling.”
With the popularity of Riot Games’ League of Legends and Valve Software’s Dota 2, Dawngate will be EA’s first take on the genre. Expect the gaming giant to reveal more information on its MOBA and other releases next month at E3 2013 in Los Angeles.
