Vector, the newest legend in Brawlhalla, is available today (Version 3.49 update live)

What's your victor, Vector?

Check out full patch notes here

Today, Ubisoft announced that Vector, the 47th Legend in Brawlhalla®, has crashed down into Valhalla with Bows and Rocket Lances blazing. The robot from the future is here and ready to do robot things.

Travelling across the galaxy from a future universe, cybermarine Arcturius Vector entered a time portal to go from 3006 to 1987, pursuing his nemesis, the Mechassassin Blackstorm, far into the distant past of New Earth. Vector’s mission, to stop the Mechassassin from eliminating an ancient leader named 'Sen-tin-el', didn’t go quite according to plan. Upon arrival, Vector found Sentinel, a superhero, locked in deadly combat with the evil enemy KABAL. Joining forces with Sentinel, Vector led the counterattack against KABAL’s alien invasion force and fought the Mechassassin Blackstorm and a squadron of super-intelligent super-jets. Today in Valhalla, Vector fights, builds jet engines with Scarlet, and pursues other hobbies.

Vector has arrived at Valhalla’s door and is available for 7200 Gold. The skins Hyperdrift Vector, Vector Model 01, and Dragonaut Vector are available now for 140 Mammoth Coins each; these skins also change the appearance of Vector in his jet form. Vector has six signature attacks:

Rocket Lance Signatures
Side Signature – Vector and his Rocket Lance transform into a jet. He hovers for a second, then flies forward and hits enemies with the point of his Rocket Lance.
Neutral Signature – Vector and his Rocket Lance transform into a jet aimed at the sky. He then propels upwards in an arc to hit any airborne enemies in his way.
Down Signature – Vector prepares himself, then quickly jumps up and transforms into his jet form. He then swoops across the battlefield and drops energy bombs.
Bow Signatures
Side Signature – Vector splits his bow in two then jumps forward to slice and dice his enemies.
Neutral Signature – Vector combines his hand and bow to create a giant laser cannon, then shoots a hefty laser beam in an arc into the sky.
Down Signature – Vector splits his bow in two, and extends his arms far out to his sides, spinning his weapons like propeller blades.

Additionally, to celebrate the Autumn Championship September 28-29, the Autumn Shard 2019 animated avatar and the Autumn Wind Katars weapon skin will be available for purchase for a limited time, from September 18 until October 9. Fans can tune into the tournament at brawlhalla.com/watch.

Developed by Blue Mammoth, Brawlhalla is an epic free-to-play platform fighting game that brings players to the fight for glory in the halls of Valhalla. Choosing from over 45 unique characters, players can jump into single-player and co-op modes as well as online and local competitions. Brawlhalla also supports cross-platform play between the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, Nintendo SwitchTM system and PC, where players are able to play custom games and queue together for all online matchmaking.

Ryu Hayabusa, Achilles, and Hades Summoned to Fight in WARRIORS OROCHI 4 Ultimate

So many characters!

Burlingame, Calif. – September 20, 2019 – KOEI TECMO America and developer Omega Force revealed three new additions to the WARRIORS OROCHI 4 Ultimate roster; including Greek god, Hades; the heroic warrior, Achilles; and KOEI TECMO’s iconic ninja, Ryu Hayabusa. They join a cast of over 170 playable characters in the thrilling new entry to the popular ‘1 vs. 1,000’ hack-and-slash series where heroes from DYNASTY WARRIORS, SAMURAI WARRIORS, and the gods of ancient history band together seeking the truth behind the powerful forces who have transported them to wage war in this mysterious new world.

The first new fighter to join the WARRIORS OROCHI 4 Ultimate lineup is Hades. The brother of Zeus and god of the Underworld, Hades is known for his cold demeanor as he rules over the dead; caring little about what happens in the world above until now. He joins his brother Zeus in an anti-Odin coalition as they fight to discover the true purpose of Loki. Joining them in battle is the fearless fighter Achilles. Known as the mightiest warrior of the Greek army and the hero of the Trojan War, Achilles is feared by enemies and allies alike. He fights not just for victory, but for honor and fame. The third character joining the epic clash is not a god, but one of the most beloved ninjas in all of gaming: Ryu Hayabusa. The young member of the Hayabusa ninja clan and heir to the Dragon lineage, the “super ninja” continues his daily fight against evil with his signature Dragon Sword ready to slice and dice anyone who steps in his way – human or god.

In addition to the new characters, KOEI TECMO America also announced that popular Japanese voice actress Saori Hayami has signed on to not only add her beloved voice to the game, but she will also sing the WARRIORS OROCHI 4 Ultimate theme song. The title track will be available in both Japanese and English when the game launches in North America on February 14, 2020 on the PlayStation®4 Computer Entertainment System, the Nintendo Switch™, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, and digitally on Windows PC via Steam®.

The new game will be available as both a standalone title, for those who haven’t yet experienced WARRIORS OROCHI 4, or as a special Upgrade Pack for those who already own the previous game.
