To show off the graphical capabilities of the new iPhone 6 and Metal, iOS 8's new graphics API designed to improve performance, the company showed off the upcoming MOBA Vainglory at Apple's event today. What's Vainglory?
Vainglory is a forthcoming multiplayer online battle arena game, a la League of Legends and Dota 2, developed by Super Evil Megacorp for iOS. It's the studio's first game, but the people making the MOBA designed specifically for touchscreens are industry vets. Led by chief operating officer Kristian Segerstrale, former head of digital at Electronic Arts and founder of Playfish, and CEO Bo Daly, formerly of Rockstar and Gazillion, Super Evil Megacorp is made up of developers from Riot Games, Blizzard, Insomniac Games and more.
