About Battle for Graxia

Battle for Graxia is a Free-to-Play game available via direct download. The game features the popular action-strategy gameplay of traditional MOBA games, but adds enhanced features such as Replay Mode and player recognition features, along with the unique White Knight player replacement feature – a first for the MOBA genre.
