The 8-bit Studios team are developing a "massively multiplayer online versus game" free-to-play for PC's, next-gen consoles, smartphones and tablets. Similar to versus games out on the market-think Tekken or Street Fighter-our combat system is based on the skills and reflexes of each player, utilizing a system of combos. However, the action is in third person and may include up to 16 players at a time! All combat will be live action, online in battle arenas where the way players handle their characters will be the key to their success!
In Skara, we do not let characters improve by levels, making them effectively invincible. In other words, a novice player has the same chance of killing a veteran player, just like in versus fighting games. The only difference is marked by the reflexes and experience of each player in battle.
After weeks of intensive work, the SKARA team is excited to finally unveil the Lava Coliseum in this short trailer video.
The Lava Coliseum is located deep inside the Rhozha Mountains, the home of the barbaric Khärn. Here the Khärn have their ritual death matches known as Blüt. Although the Khärn inhabit the mountain sanctuary, the coliseum was built by a more ancient and technologically proficient race.
Many races have made it to the Coliseum, few have lived to tell about it.
Watch and tell us what you think!
