Awesomenauts, the 2D platforming shooter MOBA title currently on Steam, is getting ready for a major update tomorrow called Cirque du Brawlee, and there are some big things coming with it. But the team behind the game wanted to do something even more with the update by throwing in a skin for one of their more popular characters; Raelynn. This thematic new skin also comes with a bit of a backstory.
Behold! Soulhuntress Raelynn, destroyer of all paranormal entities, and cake, chocolate cake. You see, despite her epic reputation, a group of people decided to invite her over to a party in her honor after she saved her village. As a theme, they crafted a chocolate cake shaped like a demon, and Raelynn promptly shot it in order to cleanse the village. So it’s clear she takes her job very seriously.
Oh, and she’s apparently partners with Cuddles on these paranormal quests. That’s a perfect duo.
As for update 4.4 (which is where the skin will be brought into), Awesomenauts is looking to bring in some major changes, which includes brand new modes to play in.
For example, for the first time ever, there will be Daily Missions for you to do. And if you do well in them, you’ll get Awesomepoints! And then, there’s the Brawl mode, a weekly mode that’ll change and give you new ways to play the game, such as the Girl Power mode, where only female Awesomenauts are allowed. Or Ultimate Power, where you can buy 6 upgrades in a row for cheap. Or Randomnauts where players start out regular, but when they die, they respawn as a random character.
It’s a lot of changes, and they’re coming October 4th, so be ready.
