This game is a hybrid system between a 3rd person shooter a MOBA and a MMO. Basically you aim and fire like a third person shooter, the gameplay and leveling is very similar to a MOBA game and the movement jumping and dodging along with stanima is similar to a MMO in gameplay. This game is currently in alpha but judging by the gameplay videos out there seems to be decently well polished in the gameplay while the UI can use work. Also the devs are focused on making a competitive pvp environment for the game over other aspects.

How it works:
Each team has a boss or guardian to protect
5v5 with 8 objective points on the map (other maps are talked about with devs so who knows if that will change)
To capture an objective you must summon a creature on it, summoning the creature will power up your guardian as well as provide a bonus including healing sight or just pure damage/control.
Creatures will summon faster on your home 3 points and longer on your opponent's while the two points in the middle will have some middle ground.
If you gain enough power through holding points or killing opponents your guardian will attack causing the opponent's to be vulnerable for a short period of time where he can be damaged.

After a time or if a guardian has been damaged twice the battle enters a clash stage where all the creatures converge on the center of the map along with the guardians for a more condensed and sped up battle.
