Omega Strikers promises there will be no loot boxes, no consumable power boosts, and no competitive advantages for spenders.
The game is free-to-play on Steam and will be available on Android and iOS soon.
There are over 10,000 concurrent players at the time of writing and it is expected to grow as Android and iOS versions go live.

Odyssey Interactive, a studio consisting of former Riot Games developers and leads, has launched Omega Strikers. The game that was formerly teased as “Project P” is now live on Steam and will be available on mobile devices soon. The new game launched with a peak concurrent player count of 14,535 players on Steam and has been maintaining around 10,000 active players at all times. While the numbers might not be impressive compared to other popular titles, the reception has been quite positive from players.

Omega Strikers is a competitive 3v3 MOBA brawler

Omega Strikers mixes MOBA elements with 3v3 combat. The goal of the game is to score points instead of killing the enemy team. The game features a number of Strikers who have their exclusive abilities and movement mechanics. Players use these Strikers to move the puck around the map and score goals for points. The game is reminiscent of Rocket League but with a top-down view and MOBA-style gameplay.

The game has been in development for over the past two years. The game had alpha releases earlier this year and this is the first time that the game is now available to the public.

Omega Strikers features a growing roster of ‘Strikers’, each of which can be unlocked through normal play. 3v3 unranked, ranked, and private lobbies across a handful of maps are available from day one, with more maps and modes planned. For those looking to dive deeper into the game, cosmetic purchases and battle passes are available via in-app purchases but they are not necessary to access any of the game’s content.

The development team has mentioned that there will be no loot boxes, no consumable power boosts, and no competitive advantages for spenders. All characters can be unlocked through regular play. The game will feature cross play with mobile when it is available on Android and iOS at a later date.

The developers are trying to push Omega Strikers as a competitive game but only time will tell if it succeeds in the esports space. The initial player numbers on Steam put it above the likes of other competitive games like Brawlhalla and MultiVersus but the numbers are not as impressive as industry staples like CS:GO, Apex Legends and Dota 2 which have exponentially higher player counts.
