Heroes Of Ruin: Coral Tombs Revealed
Square Enix pulls back the curtain on a new environment for its upcoming action RPG
We have to admit, Square Enix's Heroes of Ruin looks incredible.
The highly ambitious 3DS title, slated to arrive sometime in 2012, lets up to four players set off through a fantasy land slaying monsters and collecting loot; solo adventurers can also go it alone.
What's more, developer n-Space hopes to release downloadable quests and equipment long after the game's debut.
We still have a ways to go before release, but for now, check out the new screens showcasing Coral Tombs. We also include a description of this new environment.
Originally an ancient graveyard, the tombs were subsequently claimed by the sea. As such the now exposed areas are a mix of coral shoals, wrecked ships, hidden buildings and flotsam and jetsam which has washed in with the invading waves. The tombs hold rich rewards as well as the odd buried secret for those who venture in, but for those that don't know the dangers, a nasty fate likely awaits at the hands of the creatures which populate the various levels...
Coral outcrops are a common sight amongst the stalagmites, some may find hidden treasures where the coral has simply grown over the loot. Other rich pickings may be found in urn-like containers and other such vessels scattered about. Of course you may well find the odd weapon discarded by some warrior from the past as well, should your eyesight be sharp.
For those survivors past and present that wash up at the entrance to the Coral Tombs it is a welcome if unfriendly sanctuary, for others, as indicated by the skeletal remains near the top of the picture it is clearly a final resting place.
