Focus Home Interactive, an independent French publisher, and the developer Wizarbox today unveils the Wizard, the second of the three playable heroes in the upcoming PSN game R.A.W.
While the Warrior excels in hand-to-hand combat, the Wizard is talented at long range attacks, where he decimates entire armies with devastating spells. The Wizard masters the natural elements and can unleash lightning, torrents of flames, tornadoes and waves of pure energy… as long as his mana pool is full. However, such tremendous power has a drawback: the Wizard is the most fragile of the heroes, and he will not stand very long should the enemy reach him!
If you missed the Warrior video, it is after the jump, along with a lot more info on the game.
Courageous, hot-headed and expert in close combat, the Warrior thrives at the very heart of the battle. Swinging his dual blades with power and speed, his powerful melee attacks are devastating, sometimes allowing him to strike down dozens of enemies at once! And when his health goes bad, bloody rage embraces him and make him even more powerful, more resilient, enabling him to cause even more damage… there is nothing more dangerous than a wounded animal!
R.A.W. – Realms of Ancient War is an explosive Hack’n’Slash for PlayStation® Network, Xbox LIVE® and PC developed by Wizarbox, taking you on a continent ravaged by a war that raged ten years earlier.
The four Kingdoms of Men, Elves and Dwarves lay in ruins, preyed on by raiders and looters. In this chaos, a new, unknown threat is looming… To discover its true nature, the kingdoms sent detachments to investigate, a dangerous mission from which no one returned. But what about you? You, who were in the wrong place at the wrong time…
Take control of a powerful Warrior, a dark Sorcerer or a Rogue master of stealth, and plunge into a grand quest full of action! The world of R.A.W. leads you, alone or in 2-player co-op, through many levels as rich as varied in every corner of the continent.
Along your quest, the experience gained through the violent battles you will fight and the weapons and magic items you will loot on the lifeless bodies of your opponents will allow you to develop the power of your chosen character. You will learn new powers and spells ever more devastating, some of which, when mastered, will allow you to inflict tremendous damage and eradicate several dozens of enemies at once… as they will often rally in hordes to fight you!
All the power you will be granted will not be too much to exterminate your outnumbering enemies. Thanks to your gift of incarnation, you will even be able to take direct control of the body of your most powerful foes, seeding discord and destruction right at the heart of enemy armies!
Invite a friend to join your adventure in an exciting co-op mode, where coordination and teamwork are essential ingredients of victory!
R.A.W. – Realms of Ancient War will be released on Xbox LIVE®, PlayStation®Network and PC 2nd quarter of 2012.
