VainGlory developer’s new game Catalyst Black gets a release date

Catalyst Black, a new team-based battleground shooter from Super Evil Megacorp, developer of VainGlory, is coming to iOS and Android on May 25

Super Evil Megacorp has announced that its new game, Catalyst Black, is launching on May 25. The shooter first reared its head back in May 2020, and after a long wait, we finally get to see what it’s like. Unlike VainGlory, Super Evil Megacorp’s previous game, Catalyst Black is actually an arena shooter focused on team play in open arenas.

The game features ten-player teams in a variety of drop-in drop-out modes, and is intended to “set a new bar for mobile gaming”. We hear that a lot, but we’ll know if it’s true on the Catalyst Black release date. From what we know so far, it’s definitely a unique combo of MOBA and arena shooter elements, helping to set it apart from many of its peers.

You can pre-register for Catalyst Black now on iOS and Android in preparation for its release late this month. Keep your eyes peeled too, as there’s sure to be more news as we get nearer to the release date. Mobile juggernaut HoYoverse also has a shooter on the way soon, and looks to be getting ready to announce a Zenless Zone Zero release date, so Catalyst Black may have competition.

Super Mega Evil Corp also showed more gameplay with their Catalyst Black release date trailer, which you can check out below.
