New Battlerite Champion – Thorn

Posted on 31 Oct 2017

After a bunch of cryptic messages in Halloween themed art for the game posted on Battlerite‘s social media, Reddit took it upon themselves to get to the bottom of the mystery and discovered the gooey centre of this easter egg is a new champion called Thorn launching alongside the game on 8 November 2017.

As the name suggests Thorn uses thorn covered roots to whip, root, and drain opponents and is most definitely a tree the hippies will want to avoid hugging, unless they want to become plant chow.

BATTLERITE’S EASTER EGG CRACKED TO REVEAL NEW CHAMPION “THORN”

The final Halloween treat is here: Thorn “The Twisted Terror” has been spotted creeping into Battlerite’s arena and will make his terrifying, playable debut on November 8th alongside the official launch of the game. Thorn was discovered by players on reddit after they solved a series of cryptic messages placed in the mysterious “Halloween themed” artwork posted on Battlerite’s social media.

The eerie art pieces held hints to a secret phone number that startlingly led players to the mighty Thorn himself. Those who dared to listen to his gravelly voice were guided to the final piece of the puzzle hidden in one of the murky forest maps in-game. The fan favorite Thorn was already a popular champion in the Battlerite’s precursor Bloodline Champions.

Thorn – Lore

Ancient folklore speaks of Thorn, the destructive apparition. Using its network of thorn-covered roots, it would whip, rupture and drain the life out of any living thing indiscriminately. Some say Thorn is just a story to keep kids out of the forests at night, others say it is an old lie used as a cover-up for misdeeds. Thorn’s presence in the Arena is both a mystery and a very bad omen.
