New characters and backgrounds revealed for Rise of Incarnates

June 11th, 2014 by Marc Comments

It looks like chaos is the order of the day with these new reveals… get ready to head to Paris

Brawlers will have the pleasure to destroy Paris during their frenzied fights. The French capital will see its “Arc de Triomphe” being the center of the heated combat between the ‘Incarnates’.

Speaking of those supernatural beings: two new contenders take part in the fight and show themselves for the first time:

· Erendira Quinn / Brynhildr : A childhood of abuse at the hands of her father ended the day she awoke as an incarnate. Fear of retribution for his violence led the man to take his own life a few years later. Already isolated by her status as an incarnate, Quinn faced further alienation as she was passed from orphanage to orphanage, ultimately ending up at a facility run by the United States federal government.

Dreaming of a society in which incarnates could coexist with normal humans free from discrimination; she began to seek out ways to contribute towards the greater good of the world. Yet headlines about incarnate crimes and acts of terror indelibly marked her kind as a threat to be feared by the general public. Her frustrations grew into a deep resentment of the rampaging incarnates, and she came to believe that the tremendous power incarnates hold required an even more powerful system of law and justice to restrain it. She found that power as commander of the Wild Hunt.

· Reinhold Kruger / Odin : Feared as the kingpin of the EU, age has not dulled Kruger’s fangs, nor his ambitions. Under the guise of retirement, he is secretly at work unfurling a new scheme: a pan-European revolution at the hands of the incarnates to secure their human rights–and to heighten their power to greatest extent possible. In his arsenal is the unparalleled intelligence network “Odin’s Eye,” the ranks of incarnates under his command, and the multi-legged assault tank “Sleipnir” he pilots. All of the pieces are in place for his plan to assassinate a host of key figures and overturn the European power structure…

Yet now he has dispatched a portion of the force he gathered for his revolution to America. Men as calculating as Kruger seldom alter long-laid plans for no reason–behind this change lie the whispers of another, fed directly into his brain. And by its bidding, Kruger now turns his attentions from Europe to the United States, where the Prophet is being held in secret.

Those two mighty fighters join Ares, Mephistopheles, Lilith and Grim Reaper in the arena. For those who missed it, the first part of a Digital Comic detailing the background story of ‘RISE OF INCARNATES’ is still available here for free!

Rise of Incarnates for PC (via Steam) is scheduled for release in the latter part of 2014.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
