The company responsible for the insanely popular MMORPG Black Desert Online, Pearl Abyss has announced that they have a new hero battle royale game in development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and that game is “Shadow Arena“. Also, the game is currently in early access on Steam and will be receiving a new hero today via a free content update.
The new hero will be the already known character from Black Desert Online the alchemist Gorgath. He is the 12th hero who uses rocks to protect and to attack. He has shorter range AOE rock attacks and long-range attacks as well.
His primary skill, Earth Alchemy Stone can blow enemies away with Earth’s power and will damage them again with an additional explosion.
With Forbidden Alchemy he can produce random items like consumables, armor, and weaponry, with higher grade items coming available when growing this skill during a match.
And finally, Gorgath’s most devastating skill is Rockwind, a rock-filled hurricane that damages all the enemies around him and adds a 10-second defensive buff.
Besides the new character, the update also features an improvement to the current game systems by separating the tiers and ranking system. The tier of a player is decided by the tier points gained after every match. With that players will be getting a better sense of progression when playing Shadow Arena.
