Koei Tecmo has provided new details on the new powerful, game-changing 'awakenin' abilities in Berserk and The Band of the Hawk. Along with this new information, the publisher also released some brand new screenshots.
In Berserk and the Band of the Hawk, playable characters have devastating abilities that must be "awakened" to draw out their true potential. Awakening abilities offers overwhelming temporary boosts that allow players to demolish hordes of enemies in their path. Players can take advantage of Guts' Berserker Armor to unleash deadly blows, Griffith's demonic Femto form to deal swift bursts of damage, and Zodd's giant Apostle form to effortlessly topple foes.
Players will encounter a smorgasbord of fearsome foes throughout Berserk and the Band of the Hawk. Evil Spirits, Ogres, Kelpies, Golems, Trolls and Demonic Knights are just a handful of the many enemies that players must annihilate during their adventure. Collect raw materials and upgrade weaponry outside of battle to increase attack damage and unlock new combos to wipe out these savage opponents.
Berserk and the Band of the Hawk is based on the world-renowned series Berserk by Kentarou Miura, and blends the signature "˜one versus thousands' style action from the long-running Warriors franchise with the grim and gruesome atmosphere of Berserk. Players will follow the daring and heroic journey of Guts, Griffith, Casca and the Band of the Hawk as they slash and smash their way through a sinister realm of magical and demonic fiends.
Berserk and the Band of the Hawk releases on the 21st of February in North America and on the 24th of February in Europe. The game will be available on PS4, PS Vita and PC.
