As expected the Gauntlet Slayer Edition has launched on PlayStation 4 today together with a new launch trailer providing a glimpse at what you can expect from the 4-player co-op action game.
Gauntlet Slayer Edition includes a wealth of new features and enhancements including new Hero Weapon abilities and customisation.
Within the Slayer Edition Heroes can now change their special abilities by equipping different weapons, and each Hero has a total of four weapons that alter their abilities :
– For the Warrior and Valkyrie this means swapping out their Special Ability (Spin attack & Shield Throw) for another type of attack.
– For the Necromancer this means swapping out her summoning ability for another one (like summon archers or summon ghosts).
– For the Elf, this means giving him two new abilities — a new bomb, as well as a new bomb shot ability.
– For the Wizard, this means swapping out one of his schools of magic (fire, lightning, or ice) for another one, giving him three new abilities.
Ah, adventurers! Welcome! I am Morak, the only wizard powerful enough to have summoned the Gauntlet. I have seen the likes of you many times. For decades I have held the Gauntlet, watching bones of fools past turn into dust. Let’s see if you stay alive any longer than those that came before.
You’re not scared, are you? Welcome then, to the stage of your deaths! You have not seen what new horrors lurk in the darkness below.
