BATTLERITE’S EASTER EGG CRACKED TO REVEAL NEW CHAMPION “THORN”
The final Halloween treat is here: Thorn “The Twisted Terror” has been spotted creeping into Battlerite’s arena and will make his terrifying, playable debut on November 8th alongside the official launch of the game. Thorn was discovered by players on reddit after they solved a series of cryptic messages placed in the mysterious “halloween themed” artwork posted on Battlerite’s social media.
The eerie art pieces held hints to a secret phone number that startlingly led players to the mighty Thorn himself. Those who dared to listen to his gravelly voice were guided to the final piece of the puzzle hidden in one of the murky forest maps in-game. The fan favorite Thorn was already a popular champion in the Battlerite‘s precursor Bloodline Champions.
Thorn – Lore
Ancient folklore speaks of Thorn, the destructive apparition. Using its network of thorn-covered roots, it would whip, rupture and drain the life out of any living thing indiscriminately. Some say Thorn is just a story to keep kids out of the forests at night, others say it is an old lie used as a cover-up for misdeeds. Thorn’s presence in the Arena is both a mystery, and a very bad omen.
Jump into Battlerite’s arena and engage in quick and intense action through highly competitive, rip-roaring 2v2 and 3v3 battles. Control one out of 21 champions that specialise in either melee, support or ranged combat, from Bakko, the heroic brawler, Jade, the long-range gunner, to Blossom, the ultimate team support. It’s all about skill-shots, timing and reactions as you dodge projectiles and pull off massive ultimate attacks using intuitive WASD movement and cursor-based aiming. Team up with friends, smash in style and triumph over the competition.
