This week in Vainglory News, we have a new hero reveal, a skin reveal adding on to the ‘Elite Force’ Alternate Fate lore and new episodes of a few popular podcasts featuring news about Super Evil Megacorp and it employees.
RARE ‘elite force’ saw
The latest addition to the ‘Elite Force’ line of skins comes in the form of a Rare SAW skin, ‘Elite Force’ SAW. The release comes with a few notable model changes. It also highlights a continuation to the lore that since included Baron and Idris. Be sure to check it out if you are still a fan of the push comp or even if you just love SAW. I mean, why wouldn’t you?
new hero ‘baptiste’
The official release of the teaser we saw last week is here and it is indeed a new hero, Baptiste.
Baptiste dictates battle by striking fear into the heart of his enemies. Reaping the souls of his opponents, he both sustains himself and empowers his attacks and abilities. He commands his army of shades to either lock down unsuspecting victims or terrorize entire teams, forcing them to flee from him.
Similar to Idris, Baptiste has two very different play styles depending on if you’re going for a weapon or a crystal path. Check out the official page to familiarize yourself with these two paths, his abilities and the lore!
The 20th episode of the Boost Podcast focuses on how Super Evil Megacorp has built a company focused on long-term growth.
