Sins Of A Dark Age Launches Out Of Early Access As F2P

Even by the time Sins of a Solar Empire folks Ironclad Games announced their MOBA Sins of a Dark Age [official site] in 2012, the genre was a little overcrowded. SoaDA was originally billed as a MOBA/RTS, but later dropped bits like base-building. It's still trying to be more ambitious than you average Dote 'em up or Loller, though.

First Look: Sins Of A Dark Age

It was with profuse apologies that I entered the demo room for Sins Of A Dark Age. "No, I haven't, I'm sorry," I said meekly when asked if I've played Sins Of A Solar Empire. Am I familiar with RTS games then? "Er, sorry, no," with more looking at my shoes. DOTA? "Barely... Look, I'm the wrong person for this, okay. But see: I'm good…

Sins Of A Dark Age: The World’s First F2PMOBARTS

I just Googled 'F2PMOBARTS' and received nothing. Well done, Ironclad Games! Sins Of A Dark Age, has broken the all-seeing eye of the world's best search engine, and brought out its passive-aggressive side: "Did you mean: 'F2P MOBARTS'". No, Google. I did not. F2PMOBARTS, you are officially a new genre. Now to explain what all those words mean.
