Climbing, a new way to kill the Behemoths at the Phoenix Lab & # 39; s I was shocked, launched in December. Players have been challenged by a modified Behemoths list, each man more deadly than the last, even fighting two at the same time. The killers fight tooth and nail to reach the infamous Malkarion in the heart of Maelstrom. They met. They fight. They have won.
Now they face a new challenge. By presenting
of Scorched Earth, a new rise is here: Blaze.
The killers will fortify the fragile forest, climb the violent volcano, and fight their way to Torgadoro, a broad-living Behemoth. It's a completely new scene in the Shattered Isles, and Torgadoro is probably the biggest Behemoth yet. A lot has changed with this new climb, so we're not drowning, are we?
Unlock New Power and Enemies Re-evaluated for War
“We learned a ton from Shock Escalation,” he said
Reid Buckmaster, designer at the creature group. “We have seen that many of them
an unexpected combination made for excellent battles, leading to the addition of Blaze
Behemoth's variation on this. We wanted to perpetuate the feeling of
being able to intervene with anything. ”
Blaze types introduced by Rezakiri, Gnasher, and Quillshot were all
added to the game, providing a fresh, burning experience in gameplay and pierced & # 39; s tried and true players
strategies. "We want to challenge them," Buckmaster explained.
The variety doesn't end there, though.
The decision to add a broad range of amps — special buffs with Escalation runs — was made early in the development. “We found out what kind of mods and amps players like to use and why. We have used that information to try to reinforce those positive things and reduce those that have no effect. ”Amps and mods allow players to increase their hunting ability in future programs by increasing their Blaze Escalation level. "Blaze has a huge platform for mods and amps to choose from, many of which are new and exclusive to this Escalation," Buckmaster said. "We wanted to provide the player with a great tool for tackling these new challenges."
Go Toe toe with King of the Blaze
Mods, amps, and Blaze variants mix the
the Blaze Escalation experience, but the true star is a new stone
Behemoth. “The earliest stages of thought had all different body types. All of them
from worms to scorpions to mysterious creatures, ”explains Kyle
Disanjh, the top animator in the creature group. “The nature of the gorilla's body is renewed
with many people around the studio. It was something we hadn't wanted yet.
This will be the first honest Behemoth, we've done. ”Weeks later
experiments, deductions removed from the final result, too
Torgadoro was born.
Like all Behemoths, Torgadoros & # 39; s emotions are alive
in their photos, and the team has worked hard to present this unique
personality in their set moves. “Usually by Behemoths,” it continues
Disanjh, "we have what are called & # 39; Personal Pictures & # 39; s playable throughout
to fight. These are the times when players realize what these creatures are
as. We and Torgadoro have tried to embed some of these moments into their own
attack, movement, and stabbing, to show who they really are. For example, when
to his surprise, Torgadoro has a short window in which the player can get some damage
in, but unlike other Behemoths, they will soon be able to roam again
pictures This shows how much they argue. ”Another execution
Torgadoro throws a tantrum. The beast will yell, pull forward and strike
your face with blind anger. Moments like these help move the range of nerves
Behemoth, and this may be the most obvious one yet.
Another unique feature of Torgadoro is its ability to use its surroundings. “One thing we have really excited about is nature-based animations. Earlier, the Behemoths had not worked with their environment, but in this regard we have some things that I hope will make for memorable moments for the players, ”said Disanjh. Just a tip: If you miss the Torgadoro track, look up to the rocks.
Explore an environment never before seen
Torgadoro & # 39; s lair is part of a different set
the islands. New to the Forgotten Isles. "What
I look at Torgadoro concepts and think about its home, Me
they immediately headed straight for the volcano, ”said Jen Morgan, a landscape architect.
Torgadoro's home with its curved stone walls and the flow of the mountain accompanies it
personality, while the way it points to the deepest. “In raising you,
we really want the player to feel as progressive as they get
close to their purpose. ”When players approach a volcano, nature becomes
extra stoves, leaves consumed by sweat and fire. “I thought it was a forest
active vegetable preparation can properly distinguish the bright red of
the final fires of the stadium. I'm glad we found something to hear too
surviving unlike the hellish volcano battle at the end. I think
naturally compare the story line to what might be at stake if the Behemoths were strong
we are left with nothing. ”
Each Escalation provides us with valuable lessons. As we move forward, we are dedicated to moving the experience forward. "We build our bases each season," Buckmaster said. "We want to improve the island experience, the intensity of the reunion, the Behemoths monument exhibition, and do more to tie everything together. I was shocked hate. "
The future is not only bright with Escalation, it is bright I was shocked. We wait to show the world what we are working for next.
Until then, we'll see you on the Dispersed Islands,
