“Strife: S2 Games’ answer to the toxic MOBA”


“Strife is daring to make significant changes instead of just following the usual formula set by Dota 2 and LoL. It’s refreshing to see a new MOBA game escape the shadows of these two giants, and strive for innovation”

Strife on Steam Celebration!

To help celebrate the launch of Strife on Steam, we are unleashing 3 Steam-exclusive packs practically bursting with goodies!

Additionally, for the first week only, we will be offering a 10% early-bird discount on Steam purchases!

Don't want to buy anything? That's cool too! All Strife Heroes are free and they always will be! Strife is truly free-to-play.

About This Game

Enter the Hero

In Strife®, you will assume control of a powerful hero. Each hero is uniquely designed to embody a play-style or idea, and heroes are by far the most important aspect of any game of Strife. As a hero, you will decide how the game flows, how quickly it progresses, and whether the outcome is favourable for your team. All Strife heroes are freely available from your very first match!

Community First

How your fellow players behave matters a lot in online multiplayer games. Strife is designed from the ground up to encourage cooperation and reduce toxic conflicts.

Customize Your Armoury

Crafting enables you to change item components and recipes, allowing any item to be part of your arsenal.

Every Hero Needs a Sidekick

A Pet will accompany you onto the battlefield, offering you unique advantages. Play to unlock more pets to expand your options.

Shared Last Hit Gold

Fight your opponents, not your allies. Last Hit bounties obtained from brawler and hero kills are split between contributing teammates.

Out of Combat Regeneration

Staying out of combat for a short period of time will significantly increase your Health and Mana regeneration, allowing you to stay near the action instead of going back to base.

Personal Courier

Each player has an invulnerable personal courier to automatically deliver purchased items.
