Infinite Crisis dev diary explains the importance of catastrophe

A new behind-the-scenes video for DC Universe MOBA Infinite Crisis is all about the importance of destruction.

The thing that differentiates superheroes and villains from normal people is their power, naturally. So when heroes and villains face off, say the devs, their battles should have consequences on the world around them. Doomsday furiously slamming the ground should crack the concrete, and Gaslight Batman's powerful beam attack should destroy the structures it passes through.

"We want a world always feeling the impact of these superheroes, always reacting to these superheroes," says creative director Cardell Kerr.

Infinite Crisis is currently in beta testing with a release planned for later this year.
