“The revamp will be centered around the classic heroes’ core features, giving each one of them a unique symbol. This involves an updated story as well as skill reworks. In addition to these changes, improvements are also being carried out on model appearance, animation, and sound effects,” says William Mei, Marketing Manager of Moonton.
With Project NEXT, one of the focuses will be to rework and revisit some of the classic heroes who have lost relevance with the release of newer ones. Another feature will be to introduce “Smart Targeting” which allows the player to freely and accurately select a target when using hero skills in a simple fashion.
The mobile MOBA genre is about to get increasingly competitive with the release of League of Legends: Wild Rift and it's good to see MLBB take an active step in improving core gameplay.
