Catalyst is a new shooter game from the makers of Black Vainglory

Vainglory is one of the memorable games that really stands out back in the day. It is a Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) developed by Super Evil Mega Corp (SEMC). Vainglory easily deserved a seat on the list of best iPad games. However, its servers were taken down in 2020. Now it remains as a community edition which is nowhere near as pleasant. The good news for Vainglory fans is that SEMC is back with a new title – Catalyst Black. The game is unfortunately not a sequel to MOBA or Vainglory. Although it does feature some familiar graphics, despite the different gameplay.

Catalyst Black is already available in select regions including Canada, Hong Kong, Sweden and Indonesia. For those living in an unsupported country, the wait will end on May 25. You can pre-register on the company’s website in advance to receive in-game perks and stay in the know. Additionally, you can win a high-end smartphone, AirPods or cash if you live in the US.

The game has a top-down view similar to Vainglory. However, it’s a 10 vs 10 shooter instead of a MOBA. You can see some familiarity in the atmosphere and design elements, but it lacks the lanes included in the previous game. And as you’d expect, Catalyst Black is a freemium game with optional in-app purchases. Players will be able to create their own character combinations – with 30+ guns, 12+ abilities, 15+ trinkets and 6 primals.

Like Vainglory, the game will work on older devices – with minimum requirements of iOS 11 or Android 6. Additionally, the Catalyst Black supports both touch controls and physical controllers. So users will get a chance to compete using their preferred method. With less than a month left for global release, it will be interesting to see whether the game achieves the same popularity as Vainglory or faces a similar fate down the road.
