NEW DARKSPORE HERO, VIPER, REVEALED
Darkspore, a new breed of online action RPG, is coming to PCs everywhere on March 29, 2011. Today Maxis released a new Hero Spotlight Video showcasing the abilities of Viper, the Toxic Ravager, one of the more than 25 characters that gamers will be able to collect, upgrade and customize in the upcoming release.
From a basic attack called Venom Blade that poisons enemies, to Virulent Vines, an ability that roots a single enemy in place and afflicts him with a disease that spreads to others, Viper’s formidable powers make him a particularly potent and lethal warrior. Viper’s squad ability, Thornado – which enables him to rapidly spin in a circle, releasing poisonous thorns in all directions – is another way Viper causes widespread damage. The new Hero Spotlight Video gives gamers a sneak peek into increasing the effectiveness of Viper’s poisons via the Hero Editor, in order to make him the perfectDarkspore Hero.
