Meet Series EV2 before she lands in Etheria on May 19th! Watch the trailer above for an overview of her defenses and abilities, and then watch our Devstream Friday at 5PM EDT to see her in action!
Series EV2 Bio
Power. To some, it comes naturally. For others, they must make it for themselves. Series EV, a childhood friend of the young heroes, left to find her creator when their power grew while hers stalled. She didn’t find her creator, but she found something even better: his workshop. Outfitting herself with a new arm cannon, a titanium chassis and new defenses, Series EV2 will blast through anyone foolish enough to stand in her way. Let them say she’s not powerful enough now. She’s happy to prove them wrong.
Series EV2 can chain multiple nodes together to make intricate beam defenses.
Proton Beam: Zaps enemies and slows them down. Enemies that die within the beam disintegrate. We hear it’s quite painful.
Reflect Beam: Build a reflective wall that sends enemy projectiles flying back at them. But it’s more than just a utility defense. A torpedo moves from node to node dealing explosive damage in a radius when it reaches a node -- the longer the chain, the more damage the torpedo will deliver at each node.
Buff Beam: All defenses that pass through the beam gain additional Defense Speed and Defense Power.
Weapon Manufacturer: Build an Atomic Launcher or a Mega Death Laser! Instead of placing nodes in a linear fashion, this defense has a central node (the weapon pickup station) and outward nodes that connect directly to the central node. The outward nodes act as mini-auras, damaging enemies and reducing their attack damage. As enemies die in these nodes, the central weapon charges. At 100%, EV2 can equip the weapon and use it to devastate foes. The pickup alternates between the Atomic Launcher and the Mega Death Laser after each full charge.
Each ability uses Heat. When the Heat Bar is full, she dispels Heat with her primary attacks.
Anti-Gravity Bots: Flying buoys of death. Bots detonate when you shoot them. Any of your nearby bots caught in the explosion will also blow up, so you can cluster them and fire at one to make the whole thing go boom. Makes a great welcoming present for enemies.
Death From Above: Super flying robot! EV2 leaps high into the air and leaves a holographic decoy on the ground that taunts nearby enemies. As she slowly floats back down, the decoy explodes. And it all looks really awesome.
Proton Charge: With a series of twists and turns, EV2 transforms into a turret, firing a devastating beam at enemies.
Her weapons. Canisters correlate to a different weapon from another hero: Sword, Bow, Tome, Polearm and Staff. EV2 inserts the canister into the Integrated Arm Cannon, changing both her primary and secondary attack. Each canister has a different firing pattern:
Very short-range shotgun bursts
Single target – high damage – long range
Spread shots – medium range
Burst fire – long range
Explode on impact – small AoE
Some say there are Legendary canisters that have unique firing patterns and effects...
