Today Pearl Abyss has announced that its Battle Royale-like action game, Shadow Arena, is launching in Early Access mode via Steam.
Based on the acclaimed Black Desert universe, Shadow Arena pits up to 40 fighters in a magic-filled battle without quarter to see who is the last standing fighter.
Early Access mode includes 10 heroes to play with, including Jordine Ducas, Orwen, and Badal el Dorado. Unlike in the Beta, the new hero Venslar is added, which introduces a new combat system through which players can choose to be very aggressive or, on the contrary, very defensive. He is the most tactical character of those available so far.
In addition to this, the new “Ultimate” skill level and a quest system to level up are added. In this way, it will now be possible to rise above level 3 to make the abilities even more lethal and thus spread destruction across the battlefield.
