Vainglory, the world’s No. 1 international mobile esport, launched Update 3.0 today, making Vainglory 5V5 available to every player globally. Vainglory 5V5 is the only undiluted, no-compromise MOBA for mobile, providing players with superior gameplay and strategic depth, the most accurate and responsive controls and the best graphics and highest frame rates on mobile. Powered by Super Evil’s proprietary E.V.I.L. game engine, Vainglory 5V5 brings the full-octane, three-lane-map experience — the most popular PC-based format — to the touchscreen generation. Featuring 3M+ polygons, more than 200 fully animated moving actors, and rendered at 120FPS, Vainglory 5V5 is set to redefine multiplayer gaming on mobile and break ground for the MOBA genre on any platform.

Vainglory 5V5 is the first and only true MOBA on the mobile platform and features true line-of-sight Fog of War, real macro and rotational strategies, last-hitting, wave control, completely free player camera controls, an intricate vision system and ultra-precise touchscreen controls that allow focus and fighting in ways that thumbsticks cannot match. Through it all, Vainglory 5V5 immerses players in a world of entirely original fantasy characters and storytelling, adding depth and emotional investment to every play session.

Vainglory is also excited to announce a brand-new 5V5 score by renowned video game composer Joris de Man. Best known for his music for the Killzone franchise and Horizon Zero Dawn, Joris just won the 2017 Game Music Award for “Outstanding Artist – Western Composer.” Vainglory 5V5 features an adaptive music system that unveils the score based on how you play, so the listening experience is different every time. The music during an intense teamfight differs from a dragon battle or roaming the perilous jungle, and so on.

To celebrate the launch of 5V5, a special Lunar New Year event will kick off shortly after the update, running from February 15-22. Players have a chance to win in-game skins by playing the 5V5 mode, with extra bonuses for playing with new year-themed skins.

As Vainglory heads into its biggest esports year yet, Super Evil Megacorp also reaffirmed two key partnerships last week. ESP Gaming will bring the top-tier league of Vainglory Esports in North America and Europe, reintroduced as the Vainglory Premier League, to a new home in Las Vegas. ESP Gaming is the world’s premiere competitive gaming content company with experience producing world-class events including the Olympics, X Games, NFL and World Series of Poker. Having recently onboarded a number of esports veterans, ESP Gaming will make Vainglory its flagship production title for mobile esports in its new, state-of-the-art Las Vegas studio.

Sharing Vainglory developer Super Evil Megacorp’s vision for no-compromises core gaming experiences on mobile devices, Razer, the world leader in high-performance gaming hardware, software and systems, has entered into a strategic partnership to combine Vainglory with its gamer-first devices and peripherals.
