Article courtesy of Bigpoint PR: Hamburg, July 9, 2015 – The 20th Sentinel in Bigpoint’s science fiction orientated MOBA game, Shards of War, has been revealed today. A heavy tank-class character, Bile was mutated by the dark mist that spread across the Black Sun Shard he used to call home. He enjoys nothing more than grabbing hold of his enemies with his mutated arm and infecting them with pools of toxic vomit.
“You make me sick!”
Bile’s most striking and distinguishable feature is his severely deformed arm. Despite this terrible disfigurement, Bile manages to demonstrate the benefits of having such a horrendous mutation with his “Bag ‘Em an’Tag ‘Em” skill. By reaching out with this freakishly corrupted limb, he can grab the first enemy in his path; drag them closer towards him and lock them down for allies to wreak havoc on the unsuspecting Sentinel.
This putrefying beast’s “Yer Lookin’ Pale” skill allows him to damage the nearest enemy whilst also healing himself. Drones will receive an increased amount of damage and, when they perish nearby, Bile’s passive “Chowin’ Down” skill allows himself to be healed even more.
Bile’s “Blowin’ Chunks” skill is his most nauseating. Pools of toxic vomit spewed onto the floor from his disfigured mouth, slow down all enemies who come in contact with it and additionally poisons them over time. When it comes to “Instillin’ Discipline”, Bile will leap to the nearest enemy and mercilessly pummel them; dealing damage and stunning his victim for as long as the skill is channeled.
But that’s not all! Bile also carries a mighty axe which he can unleash in the thick of battle – ideal for tearing enemy Sentinels to shreds!
Literally rotten to the core
Named Bile by the survivors of the Black Sun Shard, his freakish mutations are the result of the dark mist that still spreads across his world. Rotten to the core, he leads his men from the ruins of their former base, preying upon any “purebloods” he can find - capturing them with his mutated arm before dragging them back through corridors already slick with gore. Though he is obsessed with unblemished flesh; it will not be long until there is only bile.
About Shards of War
Shards of War is the world's first science fiction-oriented MOBA game and available via a free-to-play client version. It combines Teamplay with an intelligent strategy, character mastery as well as classic top-down shooter controls (WASD) provide action-packed PvP battles in a unique setting.
In Shards of War, two teams of five compete against each other in 20-minute matches, fighting for PvP dominance on the game map. The increasing number of characters currently measures 20 unique Sentinels, each specialized in a certain field: tank, operative, assassin or medic.
The objective of the rival team is to destroy the enemy headquarters by conquering and defending three different paths (Lanes). Each team is given AI-controlled drones to help them in their mission, shipped out by the headquarters to provide assistance. Both teams also may seize neutral drones in the map's central zone.
Experience points are given for taking down enemy drones, destroying defensive towers, completing missions as well as wiping out enemy players. These points enable individual players to unlock ability-increasing items and to determine which items will be used in a match from their stash of items (Loadout system).
By leveling up one's own account, opportunities will be unlocked to players to hone their character and activate stronger items.
