Launched today in Europe and North America, Master X Master (MXM) is an free-to-play PC action MOBA featuring WASD movement and a tag system that lets players bring their choice of two NCsoft all-star champions (Masters) into the arena at once, swapping them out on the fly.

It’s hard to get excited for a new MOBA these days, but MXM has a few cool things going for it. The tag system sounds cool and should make for some really exciting gameplay moments between people much better at multiplayer arena games than I.

It also features a cast of beloved characters from more interesting NCsoft games, like City of Heroes’ Statesman, Poharan from Blade & Soul and that one guy from that thing.

Plus it has mini-games. What the hell is going on here?


Here is an informative overview of how the game is played.

And here is a much less informative cinematic launch trailer.
