Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Turbine announced today that the DC Comics MOBA Infinite Crisis will enter Open Beta on Friday, March 14. The Open Beta will allow players to play the new tri-lane map, "Gotham Divided," where two universes collide and players can battle across Gotham City and its Multiverse variant, Gotham by Gaslight.

In addition to the Open Beta announcement, three new champions were announced, complete with profile videos: Green Arrow, Aquaman, and Mecha Superman.

Green Arrow

To atone for his past failings and behavior, Green Arrow took up hood and bow in the name of justice.

Oliver Queen was nothing more than a spoiled socialite… until pirates attacked his extravagant party at sea. Eluding capture he launched a sneak attack but, having shirked archery lessons, was a poor shot. His arrow missed, triggering a pirate’s dead-man switch and killing dozens in the following explosion. Thrown into the ocean, Oliver washed ashore sometime later on to a deserted island, where circumstance forced him to survive with bow and arrow alone. When rescued much later, Oliver committed to making things right and became Green Arrow.

A Marksman armed with bow and a quiver of specialized arrows, Green Arrow aims to gain the upper hand in combat.

Aquaman

Child of an Atlantean Queen and lighthouse keeper, Aquaman defends two worlds while feeling at home in neither.

Arthur Curry’s life was forever altered when the media discovered an “Aquaman” from Atlantis living in a coastal town in Maine. This news reached the infamous treasure hunter, Black Manta, whose obsession with Atlantean relics eventually led to the death of Arthur’s father. In his grief, Arthur abandoned the surface and claimed his rightful place as King of Atlantis. After years of squabbling and intrigues, Arthur tired of the court and returned to the surface with his love, Mera, where he protects both worlds, yet feeling at home in neither.

Mecha Superman

A fusion of Krypton and Earth technology, Mecha Superman is a massive hero with an even bigger heart.

By connecting a crashed Kryptonian space probe to his family’s enormous agrobot, young Clark Kent created an unexpected new robot. Clark named him KAL and tried teaching him about being human, mostly through an imaginary game called “Superman”. This hero, played by Clark, could right every wrong, yet K.A.L. never understood the game’s purpose. Everything changed when, walking home from school, Clark was killed by a drunk driver.
