LOS ANGELES — EA is entering the MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) scene with Dawngate.

Announced at the publisher’s Electronic Entertainment Expo briefing today, Dawngate looks similar to established MOBAs like League of Legends and Dota 2. But EA promises that its game will take place in an epic story. Blizzard also has a MOBA currently in alpha, Heroes of the Storm.

You can play the beta test here.
