Fault is a third-person 5v5 MOBA that combines original gameplay elements with assets and inspiration drawn from Paragon by Epic Games. The game is currently available in Steam Early Access and has received mixed reviews so far. The full release of the game is expected to happen in Q1 2021.
The game features all major features in its Early Access phase: a dozen playable champions, in game item store with over 70 items, one finished map, unlockable cosmetics, game accounts to keep track of stats and leaderboard ranking. The finished version will feature more heroes, new items, cosmetics, game modes, additional features and more.
Players enter a 5v5 online match, where they choose a hero from their unlocked hero pool to play for that match. The hero is upgradeable over the course of the game, growing in strength through acquired experience and purchased items. The two teams compete to destroy their opposing team’s “core”. The victors receive increased rewards toward account progression as well as increased in-game currency toward unlocking heroes and cosmetics.
A unique gameplay element that separates Fault from other MOBAs is the introduction of a feats system, which allows a player to gain strength by achieving milestones during a match. Accomplishing a feat earns the hero favor which can be allocated into the factions the player chose at the beginning of the match. Having high favor in factions unlocks additional strength from the legendary items that are linked to the faction. On release (estimated for early 2021), the game will be free to play.
