Bandai Namco, makers of the Soul Calibur and Tekken franchises just announced a new free-to-play fighter titled Rise of Incarnates. This 3D fighter is scheduled for release in the latter half of 2014 for PC. The look of the game is comparable to Platinum Games’ Anarchy Reigns.
Rise of Incarnates features 2 vs. 2 gameplay, a multitude of characters and roles, and battlegrounds throughout shattered yet accurately rendered real-world cityscapes. These diverse character types and roles, each with unique skills and powers, appeal to a variety of play-styles while accommodating expansive team dynamics and strategy. Players employ sharp reflexes, mental resolve, and strategic insight as they run, jump, and fly through 3D arenas, engaging in both close-quarters combat and long-range assaults.
Players take the role of “Incarnates”, humans that command untold mythical powers as they vie to avoid tragedy and reshape the course of their world. Due to their special abilities, Incarnates are both feared and loathed by the general population while being persecuted by the authorities that want to harness and use their power for their own nefarious needs. One day, a mysterious voice calls out to the Incarnates telling them the only way to avoid certain destruction is to destroy the “Sovereign of this era.” It is here that the battle for dominance amongst Incarnates begins and the fate of life on Earth hangs in the balance.
The Rise of Incarnates official website is open and taking alpha sign-ups. You can watch the announcement trailer below.
