PARIS – September 4, 2012 – RAW – Realms of Ancient War, the explosive Hack’n’Slash (action/role-playing game) developed by Wizarbox for Xbox LIVE®, PlayStation® Network and PC, has unveiled the Rogue in a new video and RAW‘s release date today!
RAW will be released on Xbox LIVE® (US/EU) and PlayStation® Network (EU) on September 19 and on the following day for the American PlayStation® Network. The game will be released in October on PC. After presenting the Wizard and the Warrior in their own trailers, RAW introduces the third playable hero of the game: the Rogue. Follow her now in this new trailer of RAW, which is entirely dedicated to her frenetic battles!
The Rogue is a bold and cunning young woman, who wields bow and daggers with equal skill. Unlike the Wizard, her versatile abilities make her lethal in close combat, yet very capable of safely harassing her opponents at range, where the Warrior would struggle. However, her rather light armor and average constitution do not fare very well in lengthy fights against numerous foes. Therefore, she uses her stealth abilities, traps and other dirty tricks to get rid of distant enemies, before emerging from the shadows when she sees fit and exterminates the remaining opponents!
RAW – Realms of Ancient War will arrive on Xbox LIVE®, PlayStation®Network on September 19, and on PC in October!
About R.A.W. – Realms of Ancient War
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 two-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!
