PSX 2015 Preview: Dead Star (PS4)

The hottest genre in gaming right now is Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas, or “MOBAs” for short.

I have yet to be on a winning team, but I think I’m slowly starting to get the hang of it.

But in any case, Dead Star’s main focus is its MOBA mode, which is in this case is called its “Conquest” mode.
