PS4Blog: Hi! Thank you for joining us this morning. Could you assistance us get going by telling our readers a bit about your self and your operate?
Hey! My name is Kai Tuovinen, and I’m the marketing and advertising guy more than at Finnish developer Frozenbyte. I’m at present undertaking many marketing and advertising/pr/neighborhood and organization points right here associated to our 3 at present announced projects: Trine four, Starbase and the newest Boreal Blade!
PS4B: Boreal Blade is out on Nintendo Switch. How would you describe the game to somebody who’s in no way heard about it?
Boreal Blade is a group-primarily based PVP melee fighting game. You are applying many swords, axes, shields, spears, and maces – all sorts of weapons to fight each and every other. The gameplay is quite reactionary and tactical, with lots of freedom to alternate your attacks and create a special fighting style.
There’s only one particular attack button, and the weapon you use is a physical object that can block enemy attacks by merely becoming in the way. You can attack in numerous various approaches as the weapon can be moved about freely. The game has pretty uncomplicated controls but quite deep mechanics.
There are lots of funny moments with limbs receiving severed, extended-variety weapon throw snipes, and accidental pitfalls taking place all the time!
PS4B: The game got a ninja launch on Nintendo Switch. We woke up and BAM, the game is reside. What produced Frozenbyte take this strategy?
We’ve got a quite compelling demo, and we wanted to make use of that with the announcement. If you download the demo, you can join any game on any map or game mode, as extended as they’re hosted by somebody with the complete game. So the demo and complete game are compatible and in the identical matchmaking! The demo players cannot level up to acquire any new loadout products, and cannot host the other maps, so they’re restricted in that sense.
Our notion was that we’d appreciate to see as a lot of players on-line as probable as there’s no bots or AI in the game, and we felt that by creating a demo that can play with the complete version we could realize that the very best, combined with the reality that any individual who sees the announcement, can just jump in appropriate away.
PS4B: Provided the game’s nature, what are the post-launch plans for the Boreal Blade content material-smart?
We’ve got plans to help Boreal Blade in the extended run, we’ve got a patch queued up appropriate now, and that is coming quickly, and subsequent right after that we’re arranging on adding points like lifetime stats for kills/deaths/harm, matches played and a lot additional!
