Of Wolves, Rams and Evil Insects
Just like in other role-playing games, all champions have access to certain specializations. Sturdy tanks stand side by side with powerful damage dealers and provident healers.
The heroes in Sigils: Battle for Raios are humanoid creatures. The animals within give the brave warriors their fierce appearance as well as their characteristics, making recognition of each figure’s roles instantaneous.
Fifteen of these unique champions are ready and waiting at release. New combatants will be populating the world of Raios in future updates, adding even more variety to the game.
In Sigils, players assume the role of the mysterious traveler, who accompanies and controls one of these fighters in battle. The opportunity to unlock all available heroes for an account and then freely select from them prior to each engagement highlights the collectable character of the game and keeps players coming back to the action RPG for more. Players follow the storyline through the course of the PvE campaign and experience the invasion of Xestia, the eerie insect queen and her army through the eyes of their selected champion. Playing single or in a cooperative group, gamers face up to hordes of slimy maggots, descending spiders and giant praying mantises.
Each of the playable champions can rise up to a maximum level of 18 with the experience they acquire from battles. In addition, the traveler gains experience with each challenge withstood and in doing so, unlocks new slots for the sigils this game was named after. By using these skill seals, the individual heroes can set themselves up for massive diversification: bruiser tanks can develop support abilities or greatly increase the value of their damage output. Additional items that come as loot drops in the story mode not only add to the players’ motivation, but also allow for further specialization of the chosen warriors and invite experimentation.
The Power of a Team
Intense multiplayer action, in PvP and PvE, is the beating heart of Sigils: Battle for Raios. The smart group search function ensures that suitable groups are found for the next epic challenge. The chat function and the friend list also allow for grouping with friends against computer controlled enemies and human challengers. An extensive tutorial, tablet-optimized controls and a smooth learning curve within the story mode make it easy to get up and going within the game. Ranking lists and detailed statistics help to draw in the pros. Only groups that are able to harmonize their abilities, match their equipment to their play styles, and follow a shared tactical plan will be able to make it to the top ranks of the PvP combat leaderboard!
