What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Developing a game in such a popular genre as MOBA is very complicated. We have created a game-play that differs from all other games, and it is very important for us to learn what players think of it - this will enable us to make quick decisions regarding further development of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“From two weeks up to several months, depending on the audience’s reaction to our project.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We'll do our best to offer you more of everything in the final version of the game - more opportunities for team work, more skins, unique arenas, and new heroes. However, we hope that communication with our players will give us new ideas.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully functional, it is a completed product. We want to see how people will play it and what their reaction will be.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game will always be free-to-play, it is our guideline.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Our team takes active part in communication in the forum. You can be sure that our game designers read players’ posts and we know of all the ideas the Community offers. The Community’s reaction to the game itself as well as to the changes we will introduce in it is very important for us, and we will closely follow posts in the Community.”

Update 09.12.15

For optimization reasons and in order to decrease waiting time for a game session to start, we have introduces several changes to the gameplay:
1. The “Dragon's Lair” arena is no longer active, its functionality has been turned off completely.
2. Bots can now be included into the game sessions.

Please, be advised that this may result in a longer waiting time for players who sign up for arena as a team. If there are not enough players online, we strongly recommend to sign up for arena not in groups, but every man for himself.

Back in no time!

Teleportation is a vital part of the magic of the golden lands. Use of teleports enables a hero to be in the right place at the right time immediately. Or it can teleport a hero into the very midst of a battle…

There are two ways of travelling through the space. The ifrst one is teleporting to the base from any place on the map. Just press B on the keyboard or click the icon on the lower panel. A hero that's returned to the base restores its health and mana - use it for tactical retreat. However, it will not work if you are being attacked, you have to escape from your enemies first.

The second way is using teleports. These stone bases with runic signs are marked as blue circles on the minimap. A net of teleports are spread all over the arena enabling heroes to quickly reach monster camps and other teams' bases. Of course, you may happen to teleport yourself straight into the hands of an enemy unit that waits for you near a teleport, but you have to risk it to get a biscuit.

About This Game

Golden Rush is a rather unusual fantasy MOBA for four teams. Here you can become one of the legendary heroes fighting against monsters, dragons, and other adventurers for the treasures of the Golden Lands.

There are no lines or creeps and nexus here. Wealth is your only goal. You are to slay monsters and seize their chests with gold, become invisible, steal treasures from other teams, defend your own gold and triumph in the dynamic fantasy PvP. Four teams make the situation on the map unpredictable: victory, seemingly so close, may slip away in one second. Golden Rush is no place to relax – it's a treasure hunt you have to carry through!

Here's what else you will experience in the game:

  • Level up your hero after choosing one of six basic classes, be it a seductive witch or a furious barbarian.
  • Look for a unique tactics of victory in the new MOBA that is different from all the other ones.
  • Slay hundreds of monsters, defeat bosses and turn into a Bone Dragon that tosses enemy heroes around as if they were puppets.
  • Collect artifacts looted from monsters and assemble unique armour sets.
  • Take part in rating battles and monthly tournaments.
  • Organize well-coordinated teams of friends and fight against experienced opponents.

Early Access Review
IF you want to kill some time, looking for something new, something with RPG styled gearing+character progress, bored out of the regular 5v5, where the outcome is decided by the current METa, teammates, you might wanna give it a try

Pros: - every gear/character can be obtained for free.
- easy to learn, causal gameplay (not Dota styled, you get reported/deported if you dont have 4000 hours played already)
- 3v3v3v3, fighting to earn 30k gold first. reminds me dead island:epidemic, even a premade fullgeared team can loose if the 3 other team harrass them
- RPG styled gearing, feels like you actually have a purpose for playing

cons: - only 6 character (early access blablabla)
- set items you find expire in 24 hour. you need to transmute them for back gem, you can get by playing, but do not earn enough tokeep all the greens you found
- early on the gear gap is huge (bad MM, lack of payers)
- until you hit lvl 10 the black gem income is slow
- many leave the match after a few min, they get replaced by a useless bot who gets farmed by other teams
- at early access release you were able to buy full legendary set for 40$
- endgame meta is quite unbalanced (90% of the ranked leaderboard is either archer or mage)

As you can see from the cons the new player experience is bad due to gear gap, but after 20 hours of my paladin im almost full geared without paying a cent:
But currently 6 champions is just not enough and matched agaist top10 ranked guys early on, loosing your green items cause you cant transmute them due to lack of black gems, just pure torment.

Early Access Review
Crappy pay2win game with close to non-existant matchmaking and unrewarding gameplay. Literally the worst ARTS I've played.

1) You 'dress' your heroes in items and you can purchase items for real money, making your hero twice as powerful as non-paying players.

2) You buy consumables (health, mana & haste potions) for gold, and if you place 3-4 you don't get enough gold for consumables, making your chances to win next match close to zero, eventually making PAYing real money for them the only answer.

3) You always get matched vs a stack of pay2win players who wreck your team with no cahnce of winning.

4) To unlock ONE hero you need to place 1-2 50 (FIFTY) TIMES with a friend unless you want to cash out $10 for a hero that you'll need to dress in powerful artefacts so you don't lose.

It's a moneygrab and developers are russian. Don't try this game save some time and money.

Early Access Review
This could literally be the worst MOBA ever ♥♥♥♥ing released. No joke or exaggeration.

Now before I explain why please let me say I played this game for two straight hours and read the forums and the wikia information about all the heroes as I'm a competitive player. I even purchased the $5 (on sale now for $4) DLC artifact pack. What a surprise, it didn't work. Nothing was added to my account not after relogging, restarting the game and doing the same things again AFTER playing another game.

I played 6 matches, now there is no real "progression" for your character outside of finding random items from killing monster camps during the actual match. Which doubles also as being the main objective, yes there is PvP but participating in this severely slows your ability to score "gold" for your team AKA points and hinders your ability to win.

As far as the item system goes its completely randomized, but its ♥♥♥♥ing terrible after 6 matches I finally found ONE item that was not your typical "blue" magic property item it was an ARTIFACT yellow colored and was a weapon with over 3 times the power of my current blue weapon. The catch was that the artifact found has a 24 hour timer, which after it expires will disappear. Forever. That's right when you finally get loot it goes away on its own magically. Of course UNLESS you spent $5 to buy "black pearls" the games premium currency and "transmute" the artifact to remove the 24 hour cooldown timer on your "found" loot.

So in essence, this is literally the worst ♥♥♥♥ing cash-grab pay to win game I've ever experienced in over 20 years of gaming. Its quite sad becasue the idea of a PvEvP MOBA really sounds unique and appealing. I would've loved to see this game work, sadly its being run by some trashy foreign greedy company with no real insight or clue how to run a successful free to play game.
