Here are some of the awesome things Season of Souls brings to Gigantic:
New Map – Ember Grove
Ember Grove is the first addition to Gigantic’s map rotation, and offers a dark, but vibrant battleground full of verticality. The map is tight and reserved; the mysterious and mossy woods transition into a brighter, thunder dome in the center via two small openings.
Structurally, Ember Grove features tighter, busier spaces with lots of cover. There are also many paths to traverse connecting the contested spawn points. The central thunder dome provides little cover and requires your team to employ different strategies.
Ezren Ghal has pursued his own research into soul magic, the power of death and “the other side.” He is always seeking more efficient and powerful sways of utilizing soul energy. In these efforts, he has always found interest in Aisling’s sword – housing her father’s spirit, Sir Cador. Ezren Ghal sees conflicts between houses as an opportunity to experiment with his powers and techniques; each battle is a “harvest” where he can rip out his enemies’ Souls.
With his insatiable lantern, Ezren Ghal has spent many lifetimes gathering the knowledge – and the souls – that sustain him. Maybe one day the lantern will reveal its true nature.
Text Chat – Hero Select Screen
