'Bloodline Champions' Goes Open Beta, Available For Pre-Order

by Rainier on Dec. 16, 2010 @ 9:39 a.m. PST

Bloodline Champions is an arena-based player vs. player game featuring unique and action-packed gameplay for up to ten people.

Bloodline Champions is a PVP game with short, intense matches for up to ten players divided into two teams. Chance is not a factor, spells and abilities do a set amount of damage. Random elements such as critical hits and passive abilities do not exist. Every spell is aimed and can be avoided by enemy players, making every ability dependent on individual player skill. Without mana and creeps, the game has almost zero downtime and is instead based on short cooldowns, this coupled with the absence of elements such as grind and farming ensures that every match is full of action.

‘Bloodline Champions’ sees players charging into battle using any of the game’s 16 different bloodlines, each with their own unique powers. Through quick, but intense battles players must defeat the other team by skillfully using their bloodline’s abilities while at the same time trying to predict their opponent’s moves.

Launching in mid January, gamers can now pre-order the game in order to get exclusive pre-launch rewards, including four new bloodlines that were just added to the game. These new bloodlines are now available to play for anyone who preorders the Titan edition or the Bloodlust upgrade of the Champion Edition. Through open beta, players will also earn Bloodcoins, which they can use to purchase exclusive in-game items and even new bloodlines.

“Bringing the game out of closed beta and into open beta is very exciting,” says Tau Petersson, CEO of Stunlock Studios. “We have been very fortunate to have had so many players testing the game through closed beta, and we are looking forward to a wave of new players coming in to help us perfect the game before launch in mid-January. As developers we are thrilled to see the great support we have received from our players, and we look forward to supporting our players through the open beta and far beyond launch.”

‘Bloodline Champions’ sees players charging into battle using any of the game’s 20 different bloodlines, each with their own unique powers. Through a variety of quick, but intense battles players must defeat the other team by skillfully using their bloodline’s abilities while at the same time trying to predict their opponent’s moves.

“’Bloodline Champions’ has already established itself as a fantastic game with a huge potential,” says VP of Sales and Marketing at Funcom, Morten Larssen. "Over 200,000 players have played and enjoyed the beta, and we’re thrilled to now let everyone find out what makes ‘Bloodline Champions’ such a great experience. Stunlock have developed a wonderful game with endless potential, and we’re excited to continue working with them in the future.”
