Featuring 5 play modes, customizable warriors and true to life action with interactive environments, Deadliest Warrior is a unique fighting game that is easy to play and hard to master. Severe limbs, decapitate heads and taunt your enemy's lifeless corpse as you build up ranking points with each victory and compete on a global scale to determine who truly is the Deadliest Warrior.
Prepare to slice and dice (literally) your opponents, but don’t be surprised if your opponent also chops off an arm, leg or even your head.
The best advice Pipeworks can give to new players is: play defense! Be tactical and look for the appropriate opening to strike. This is more a game of timing than it is about button dexterity. One-hit kills can happen so stay alert and don’t rush your enemy foolishly. Sometimes all you need are a few strokes to achieve victory. Because Pipeworks wanted the game to stay true to the Deadliest Warrior show premise they wanted the warriors to be tough! So when you start playing, don’t be surprised if the game is HARD. Because it is! No really, if you go to the game settings and check the difficulty you notice that we start you on HARD. You’re welcome! If you want to slice your way to glory quickly and unlock all the weapons and extra armor then feel free to switch to Normal until you become familiar with the system.
Since there has been some time between releases, Pipeworks have been able to add more balance to the PS3 version. The biggest issue we fixed was rage quitting where players could quit ranked matches via menu exit or powering down their systems and not lose ranking points. This causes a lot of heartache as you can imagine! The other major issue fixed was balancing the Ninja character. The Ninja’s weapons were slightly overpowered in the original release and he had an unfair instant recovery flaw that could be exploited. Needless to say, that has been fixed for the original PSN release. Pipeworks’ve added a bunch more balancing fixes in there to uplift some of the weaker characters as well, so the multiplayer lobbies should be buzzing and the leader boards will reflect the true skill level of all the players.
Pipeworks are also excited to announce upcoming DLC. Three new characters will be available with entirely different play styles. The only announced character so far is Rajput (above) but if you want a hint as to who the other two are, be sure to check www.deadliestwarriorthegame.com and see which characters came out on top during our fan polls.
Deadliest Warrior is currently available on XBLA for 800 Microsoft Points and will be available tomorrow on PSN for $10,00
