The multiplayer melee hit will add new levels, heroes, and enemies to its popular PvE mode later this month. NetEase and 24 Entertainment are excited to announce the expansion of their SHOWDOWN campaign mode for NARAKA: BLADEPOINT, coming October 28 to PC and Xbox Series X|S.
SHOWDOWN: Chapter II promises a wealth of challenging content for warriors to experience, introducing new playable heroes, fierce new enemies to defeat, and advanced gameplay systems. If you’re interested in seeing the teaser for Chapter 2, then check the video embedded below:
In trios, hone your melee skills across three new stages, designed for intense bouts of cooperative play:
- Brave the Desert Tribulations saga and cleave through enemy hordes to reach this zone’s punishing mini-boss, the Stone Monster.
- Push back against the tides of evil in Immovable as you and your fellow warriors build and fight in this tower defence-inspired level.
- Throw down against Omni’s sinister second incarnation, Omnius·Rock, when you face the Toppled Mountains finale.
SHOWDOWN: Chapter II will also expand the number of playable heroes available in this mode. Fan favourites Matari the stealthy assassin, and Temulch the juggernaut will join Kurumi, Tarka, Valda, and Viper.
Players can experiment with new team compositions in PvE, further customising their heroes using powerful Souljades. Already available in NARAKA: BLADEPOINT’s competitive modes, these will raise the Sense of your hero and greatly augment their stats when facing greater challenges.
Showdown Chapter II builds on the success of NARAKA: BLADEPOINT’s ambitious PvE mode, which was first introduced earlier this year. This has helped expand the game beyond its core competitive modes which include duels, brawls, and the marquee, 60-player battle royale. But that’s not all! 24 Entertainment promises more content drops as we march into 2023 and beyond.
