Mirage: Arcane Warfare Returns from PAX With Surprises

From the creators of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare comes the next competitive murdering game, with a new artstyle and abilities, and the same loose implementation of physics. The first video, linked above, is a commentary-free jaunt through footage captured at the PAX East open test, showing some of the different characters, arenas, abilities, and more.

The second video comes as part of a series of videos showcasing the different classes in Mirage, of which we’ve seen the Vigilist, the Taurant, and the Vypress already. The latest is a class light on her feet and quick with a blade, the Tinker. Packing an array of trapping devices and abilities designed to move and control her enemies, such as a Hook Shot or a Kickflip, the Tinker offers yet another way for Mirage: Arcane Warfare to distinguish itself from its Chivalry forebears.

A closed Beta is forthcoming to players who pre-order, and that Beta will kick off on March 27th. Until then, stay tuned for more glimpses at the classes and action available in Mirage: Arcane Warfare.

Official Press Release

Torn Banner Studios today released a new trailer exploring one of the iconic classes of their upcoming multiplayer action-combat game Mirage: Arcane Warfare, the Tinker.

The Tinker, a street-smart rascal with a wit as sharp as her sabre, uses her diminutive size, speed and cunning to control the battlefield with trap spells while keeping opponents constantly on their toes. This class combines swashbuckling melee moves with deadly magic abilities:

  • Hook Shot – Shoot a hook that pulls an enemy towards the player
  • Stasis – Fire a projectile that lifts an enemy up in the air, taking them out of the fight briefly
  • Proximity Mine – Place a mine that explodes when enemies come close
  • Obelisk – Call forth an obelisk as a defensive structure, then explode it on command
  • Dervish – Perform a quick evasive jump followed by a stab with a powerful lunge
  • Kickflip – A quick kick that creates a large distance between the player and their target

This brand new trailer featuring the Tinker is the latest in a series of videos called “Instruments of Death” exploring Mirage’s unique band of warriors. More will be released in the lead up to the upcoming 2017 launch of Mirage: Arcane Warfare.
