Second Wave is a free-to-play online multiplayer hero-based shooter MOBA set in the world of Armantia. Over the years, wars have been fought over a unique resource that has helped the continent advance in both Science and Technology: The Arcane Stone. Throughout these years, certain characters have risen to prominence, either as Heroes or Exiles, fighting a second generation war for the Arcane Stone. Learn the history of Armantia and its destructive past, and take matters into your own hands through various game modes to unlock the hidden mystery behind The Arcane Stone.

Fight in the war of Armantia either alone, or with friends, and compete in numerous modes such as Domination, Core and the Three-Way-Battle.

Second Wave offers a diverse group of characters to choose from, each with unique abilities, backgrounds, and cultures. Whether it’s Technological-based, Magic, Ranged, or Melee, players will have the choice to build their team, or squads, in a unique way. By working together, players can mix and match the team “meta”, and bring that strategy to the various game modes that Second Wave offers.
