Setting New Benchmarks
“GameBench’s performance ratings show that Vainglory not only delivers 120FPS gameplay on devices like the Razer Phone, but that it continues to perform at a highly optimised 60FPS across a wide range of iOS and Android devices, even going as far back as the iPhone 5S,” said Sri Iyer, CEO of GameBench. “This puts Vainglory at an advantage to bring its seamless, lag-free competitive MOBA gameplay to the largest possible audience, unlike other MOBAs that are forced to make compromises on visual fluidity and touch responsiveness, often struggling to run smoothly at 30FPS let alone 60.”
Thanks to renowned video game composer Joris de Man, you can enjoy a brand-new 5v5 score. Best known for his music for the Killzone franchise and Horizon Zero Dawn, Joris just won the 2017 Game Music Award for “Outstanding Artist – Western Composer.” Vainglory 5V5 features an adaptive music system that unveils the score based on how you play, so the listening experience is different every time. The music during an intense teamfight differs from a dragon battle or roaming the perilous jungle, and so on.
The Shift to 5v5
Starting with an April 2018 preseason followed by the June regular-season start, the inaugural Vainglory Premier League (previously Vainglory8) will also shift to the 5v5 format. Season 1 will take place on the all-new Sovereign’s Rise map, a completely new map built from scratch for Vainglory 5v5. The Vainglory Premier League will build upon the esports structure and schedule in place, moving to a double-round-robin with midseason and end-of-season playoffs, along with a single relegation tournament and regional championships will qualify teams for the annual World Championship.
