How about them Awesomenauts? The folk over at Ronimo Games are still hammering out content for the 2D side-scrolling battle arena, with patch 1.8 on the horizon and a new character to boot. Introducing Raelynn, a sniper of some renown who has been woken up from cryo-sleep to join the ranks of the Awesomenauts. 1.8 doesn't end there though. No, it will also bring in Halloween themed decorations into the maps. Yet again, Ronimo delivers.
To further detail Raelynn, SkyHawks sniper from the year 3009, her main skills include:
- Sniper Shot: Cuddles folds out to form a supercute variable Sniper-Pulserifle! Able to zap any target over great distances, the resulting beam will take out most of the surroundings along with the target. If you see a laser-point, best run!
- Time-Rift: An expandable wall held within a nifty grenade! With this gadget, Raelynn can create some cover out of just about any terrain. Also great for blocking off annoying ex-es.
- Protoblaster: Cuddles all folded up into a widdle gun makes most go “d’awwww” upon seeing it. This reaction usually transitions smoothly into a highpitched scream as they find out what “cuddling” really means.
- Jump: During bootcamp, recruits learned to traverse many obstacles and leap great distances. What made Raelynn special is the fact she was able to do all that in a pair of fancy heels as well as combatboots.
Expect an update on the release of Raelynn soon, including a trailer of her in action.
Awesomenauts is currently available on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It's best to assume the 1.8 patch is currently exclusive to the PC until we've been notified otherwise.
