Dawngate is a multiplayer online battle arena video game developed by Waystone Games and published by Electronic Arts for Microsoft Windows. It was meant to be a free-to-play game likely to be supported by micro-transactions.
The open beta was released on May 19, 2014; on November 4, 2014, it was announced that because the beta was not shaping up as they had hoped, all development would stop and the game would be fully shut down in 90 days.
Dawngate is a team-oriented game where a group of five players (shapers) work together to complete objectives and destroy the enemy guardian. Destroying the guardian wins the game for you and your team. Shapers and their stats can be modified by players by choosing spells and items. Shapers also have access to wards that can be placed to provide vision to areas of the map for their team.

From the game website:
Dawngate is a new MOBA game with a "flexible Meta" that offers you freedom of choice in playing the characters you want to play the way you want to play them while still contributing to your team.
Your Character, Your Way.
Play the character you want in a way that matches your personal playstyle - your role isn't dependent on your choice of Shaper. Each role is custom tailored to let you get ahead of the competition in a variety of ways.
Experience a truly new MOBA.
Five Shapers, two lanes, a huge jungle, and unique objectives make for a new strategic landscape with the Role System. Run a Tri-lane. Double-Jungle!
Fast-paced action from start to finish.
Battle in constant skirmishes to control objectives like the Spirit Wells; beat back your foes and draw economy straight from the map itself. Every match ends with an intense boss fight against the enemy team and their Guardian.
