SUNSfan and Jenkins Announce New Game ‘Relic Arena’, a Successor to Ability Arena from Dota 2 Arcade

In a strategic move following the monetization challenges in Dota 2 Arcade, renowned casters Shannon “SUNSfan” Scotten and Andrew “Jenkins” Jenkins have unveiled their latest gaming venture, ‘Relic Arena’. The standalone game, a spiritual successor to their popular Dota 2 custom game Ability Arena, introduces a unique blend of historical inspiration and strategic gameplay.

Relic Arena: A Build-Your-Hero Auto-Battler

Departing from the fantasy realm, Relic Arena draws inspiration from historical figures such as Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, Cleopatra, and Alan Turing. Players will enhance their heroes not through traditional abilities but by selecting historical relics, each carrying unique powers and historical significance.

SUNSfan emphasized the vision for Relic Arena, stating, “A game that fits into your daily routine with ease but also boasts the depth and complexity to take center stage in competitive gaming arenas.” The team aspires to deliver an experience that is both casual and competitive.

Game Description

Unlike conventional auto-battlers, Relic Arena focuses on empowering players to craft their heroes. The absence of gacha or pay-to-win mechanics ensures a fair playing field, with the game adopting a free-to-play model complemented by a Battle Pass. This pass will feature cosmetics, leader unlocks, and visual effects, reminiscent of Ability Arena.

To support a thriving competitive scene, the development team plans extensive beta testing, bi-monthly balance patches, and regular tournaments.

Announcement and Release Date

With the announcement of the Kickstarter campaign, a timeline of various important events are noted. If things go according to plan, the game is set to be released on March 2025.

Relic Arena is set to be available on Windows, Steam, iOS (App Store), and Android (Google Play), ensuring accessibility across a diverse range of platforms. The Kickstarter campaign offers backers various tiers of rewards, including the opportunity to be a designer and exclusive packages like the “Whale Pack” which allows backers to celebrate the game’s launch with SUNSfan and Jenkins.

With progress noted as “quicker than expected” the speculative release dates seem promising, marking the anticipation for Relic Arena’s emergence as the next exciting chapter from the creative minds of SUNSfan and Jenkins.
