Ever played Dark Souls PvP and wanting it as a stand-alone? Me too but we all know no one does it like From Software, however, that doesn’t mean people can’t try to replicate it! Developer Vizor Games announced a Nordic player-versus-player combat arena game called Blood of Heroes for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. An a PvP fanatic, this caught my eye!
Blood of Heroes pits the greatest heroes of an unforgiving borderline world against each other in intense player-versus-player combat. Set in medieval Nordic arenas, fearsome warriors fight to the death in a quest for glory as players unleash an array of fighting styles and wield an arsenal of lethal weapons and deadly abilities. Players can experiment with six distinct heroes in the closed beta in both one-on-one and group combat modes. Hone your skills in a battle where the artistry of the blade is enhanced by powerful war sigils—and met with blistering counterspells. Players must learn to master the character that best suits their playstyle, weighing up if they prefer fast darting blows, powerful measured strikes or area-of-effect abilities that disrupt their foes.
Look, I’ve always wanted something like Dark Souls that’s focused on skill and punishes players who don’t learn from their mistakes. I hope it turns out well!
