With the long-awaited PC release of Kingdom Under Fire 2 just around the corner, Gameforge has begun profiling the five character classes that will be featured in the game. The developer has begun this countdown celebration by introducing the Gunslinger and Spellsword character classes.
A relative of the Dark Elves, the Spellsword combines her magical runes to produce ever new attacks or to heal herself, compensating for her relatively shallow health pool. On the battlefield she darts and jabs with agility, wielding sword and scepter.
She was the fruit of a forbidden experiment that harnessed the power of the gods themselves to combine the blood of the Ancient Elves and the present-day Dark Elves. After barely escaping the appalling research, a Dark Elf with fair skin meandered through the world to live cast out from both the Elves’ and the Dark Elves’ societies. She found refuge with the Azilia Knights in a place where she could avoid the watchful eyes of possible pursuers.
The Gunslinger prefers to fight at the forefront and immediately lock horns with the enemy, usually being among the first to break their lines. A versatile human combatant, the Gunslinger effortlessly switches between a sword and two pistols, utilizing an array of combos to attack both individual targets and unleash area of effect attacks. But he always has to keep his ammunition in check, a resource which can be replenished by stringing together sword combos.
Mistrusted for the simple crime of hailing from Brimstone, a village of refugees … deliberately ordered on a suicidal mission during which his troops were overwhelmed and his men slaughtered … his request for leniency fell on deaf ears and he was expelled from the army. Seeking to avenge the deaths of his men, and save his own skin, the Gunslinger found refuge in Azilia. In this place of opportunity, he became a mercenary and joined the Azilia Knights.
The Gunslinger is one of five character classes playable in Kingdom Under Fire 2. The full list of classes is as follows: Berserker, Elementalist, Gunslinger, Ranger, Spellsword.
Originally announced in 2008, Kingdom Under Fire 2 is an MMO-RTS hybrid genre game unrivaled in its epic scale. From developer Blueside, Kingdom Under Fire 2 is set in a world where three powerful factions — the Human Alliance, Dark Legion, and Encablossians — compete for control over the land of Bersia. Players can choose from several hero classes and focus on building up their individual characters or command massive armies as war strategists. Kingdom Under Fire 2 takes place 50 years after the events of Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders and features an immersive story campaign that can be experienced in multiplayer online or in solo play.
