It's the season to be spooky and that means games are being updated with ghosts, graveyards, and pumpkin heads. Free-to-play hero shooter Gigantic is no exception, except it's latest update - titled Season of Souls - isn't quite as trope-filled as others.
What is in it, we hear you ask - pay attention: Season of Souls brings a new hero, a new map, and a handful of improvements to the play experience. Let's break it down further...
The new hero is called Ezren Ghal. He's a caster hero and necromancer, which means he uses his powers to damage opponents from a distance, collecting souls to restore life and turn them into new abilities. As to the new map, it's Ember Grove, and brings a dense and mysterious battleground to Gigantic - it's anicent and home to bugwitches, with plenty of nooks, crannies, and verticality to encourages you to outmanoeuvre your opponents.
As to what else is in Season of Souls, here: you can choose your player icon, chat extended to the hero confirmation phase, skins for Ezren Ghal, improved bot matches, shop UI updates, and new hero interactions during battle.
