Vizor Games has revealed the first large-scale beta for Blood of Heroes, the Dark Souls-inspired Nordic PvP arena battler. Check out the above trailer for the game’s gameplay, which is reminiscent of For Honor.
Vizor is best known for mobile games like Zombie Castaways and Mahjong Treasure Quest, but Blood of Heroes, not to be confused with the superhero tabletop RPG The Blood of Heroes, is making the transition to PC and console. If you’re looking for some bloodthirsty PvP in medieval Nordic arenas, you should sign up for the PC closed beta right now, which will go live on Tuesday, May 4.
“We wanted to make a game that we’d absolutely love to play ourselves: a wicked, adrenaline-pumped world, inspired by Dark Souls, with unforgiving PvP battles and warriors who show no pity or fear,” says director Dmitry Voronov. “In Blood of Heroes, just like in history, heroes are not always knights in shining armor who fight for the greater good. They can be relentless, sly, vengeful, or, vice versa, supporting and protective. Their essence is tried and revealed by combat. We tried to give them personality, so the player could make a choice that fits their mood and gameplay style.”
The closed beta will feature six distinct characters, each with their own arsenal of firearms and skills, as well as one-on-one and squad battle modes. Characters vary from quick and nimble to sluggish and strong, and you’ll learn melee combat as well as spell and counterspell casting, area-of-effect skills, and more.
Blood of Heroes does not yet have a release date, but it will be available on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, and Xbox One at the same time.
