Xana vs Raymer

On July 27th we held our first ever gameplay live stream, featuring the first extended look at characters Xana and Raymer. The stream also featured a lengthy Q and A with the designers, a double down-air kill, and at least one three-stocking.

For those looking for a TLDW, here are some highlights!

And a glimpse of some of the questions answered:

How many characters will you have on release?

We are shooting for eight on release, but maybe only 6-7 when we go into beta.

What upcoming character archetypes can we expect for new characters?

We detailed all first eight character archetypes in a past Vlog, and they are still the plan: a duo type, a floaty type, and a non-sword weapon user. We just began developing ideas for characters past the initial eight, but those are still very early in the process.

Will there be guest characters?

Not soon. We’re building our own universe, and third party IP would distract from that. Maybe one day, but for now, we want the focus to be on our new, original characters.

Check out the full stream for a ton more detail, and be sure to subscribe to our Twitch channel so you can catch the next one.
