Vainglory for iPhone Launches, After Being Used On Stage to Show Off iPhone 6

Back in September at Apple’s Special Event to debut the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the company brought developers Super Evil Megacorp on stage to show off their new Multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA), Vainglory. This new game utilized Apple’s Metal technology for improved and efficient graphics for the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on iOS 8.

Vainglory for iPhone is now available in the App Store for download, after its initial global rollout started last week in Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand.


The developers recommend playing the game on the newest possible device to get the best experience. There are two separate iPhone and iPad apps in order to support older OpenGL devices on iPad (iPad 2 and above), while also only supporting Metal for iPhone 5s and newer.

Below is a video overview of Vainglory by IGN:
