New Infinite Crisis champion profile videos show off Gaslight Batman and Doomsday.
Turbine’s MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) Infinite Crisis now has two new champion profiles, showcasing a couple of new characters. This game rings a bit of Marvel Ultimate Alliance with a focus on DC Comics characters. The free-to-play MOBA loosely follows the story of the comic book series of the same name, much like Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 was loosely based on Marvel’s “Civil War” comic book series.
Set to launch sometime this year, Infinite Crisis is the first original title from Turbine since being bought by Warner Bros., and may prove to be the most arcade-friendly DC Comics release of the year alongside Injustice: Gods Among Us and Batman: Arkham Origins. The free upcoming beta is being offered upon release for those who sign up.
The Gaslight Batman champion profile for Infinite Crisis shows us Batman with glowing goggles and a gadget with a sort of neon bat on the end which apparently fires sonic waves. The narrator says:
“A watchful guardian equipped with sonic weaponry, Gaslight Batman seeks brutal justice on the battlefield. Gaslight Batman uses quick mobility and range damage to out-maneuver his opponents as a ranged hybrid damage marksman. His passive [skill] is Echoes, reducing enemies’ attack defense with every auto-attack, revealing them through fog of war, and dealing them bonus damage with his other abilities. Sonic Batarang throws a projectile that bounces from the first target hit to nearby targets, prioritizing targets debuffed with Echoes. Sonic Shell lobs a concussion grenade and the ability can be activated again while the projectile is in the air to immediately explode. Enemies hit will be slowed and have [the Echoes effect] applied to them. Bat flight is your repositioning tool, as you fire a grappling hook to swing in and out of combat at a fixed distance, dealing power damage to all enemies you pass through.”
The rest of the Gaslight Batman champion profile is at VG247 and on YouTube. The champion profile for Doomsday is above.
