What is Predecessor?
Predecessor is a third-person action MOBA(Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) game built in Unreal Engine 5. It has been in early access on PC for about a year. On Steam it has gained mostly positive reviews from players. Here’s the official description of the game:
Teams of five join arms in battle as they fight for glory on the battlefield against enemy heroes on a traditional three-lane map featuring an interactive jungle, epic monsters and more. In a match, 10 players are divided into two teams with each player controlling their chosen hero. Each hero has their own unique abilities and design, meaning there’s a hero to match everyone’s style of play. Heroes complete objectives to collect gold like killing minions, downing towers or annihilating enemy heroes. As a hero collects more gold, they can buy items from the shop that influence their heroes in interesting ways – allowing them to teleport to new locations, go invisible, freeze time and more. Items also allow a hero to get more powerful (strength, attack speed, health and various other attributes). Unlike most MOBAs, Predecessor puts you into the heart of the action. The third-person perspective fully immerses players into the game as enemies appear from shadow walls, over ledges or behind them.
