'Asura's Wrath' (ALL) Pre-Order Incentives

by Rainier on Nov. 14, 2011 @ 10:24 a.m. PST

Once a revered deity, Asura was betrayed by his fellow gods and stripped of all his powers. Consumed by anger at the injustice he has suffered and swearing vengeance, Asura discovers he can use this fury to his advantage and turn it against his enemies.

Inspired by Asian mythology and fused with science fiction, Asura's Wrath will redefine the action genre by delivering unprecedented levels of dynamism, drama and interaction.

By channeling his inner rage, Asura is now able to unleash devastating attacks and wreak havoc as he battles against the deities who have wronged him and their earthly forces. Inspired by episodic dramas, Asura's Wrath will be split into distinct sections with gameplay and narrative unfolding as one and building to a final climatic conclusion.

Pre-Order Incentives:

  • Amazon: Fans who pre-order Asura’s Wrath at Amazon.com will earn the Devastator Pack. This includes two additional gauges in the game that allow the player to reduce damage taken by Asura, and fill his Unlimited Rage Gauge faster.
  • Best Buy: The Infinity Pack will be the reward for pre-ordering at Best Buy. Featuring the Extinguisher Mode and Zealot Mode, the Infinity Pack gives players the ability to recover more quickly from overheating due to heavy attacks and prolongs the player’s time in Unlimited Rage Mode.
  • GameStop: Those who pre-order Asura’s Wrath at GameStop will receive an exclusive combination art and comic book. Written and illustrated by the crew at Penny Arcade, the Asura’s Wrath comic book takes a hilarious “what if” look at Asura and how he would deal with everyday situations. The flipside of the book features a collection of concept art straight from the developers at CyberConnect 2. With illustrations of the Asian mythology and Sci-Fi inspired universe that makes Asura’s Wrath truly unique, the Asura’s Wrath art and comic book is sure to please any fan.

Key Features:

  • New type of action game – Asura’s Wrath will seamlessly blend action and narrative and will adopt an episodic nature, more akin to a TV drama series.
