Bloodless Champions: Dead Island MOBA Detailed

By Nathan Grayson on August 22nd, 2013.

Yep, that sure looks like a Dead Island MOBA

My fingers still feel a deep sense of slithering, shivering wrong in the pits of their tiny finger souls when they type out the words “Dead Island MOBA,” but here we are. Dead Island Epidemic is happening because Deep Silver’s so obsessed with zombies on islands that I think it wants to create an actual, factual epidemic of Dead Island (and Dead-Island-like) games. If that is indeed the case, it’s well on its way, and Epidemic is without a doubt furthest off the previously established map. On the upside, it’s being developed by Stunlock Studios, the talented team behind the Quinns-approved Bloodline Champions. Also, there’s crafting and you capture points all over the map instead of dragging your weary bones through countless base-busting wars of attrition. Other highly unexpected features include zombies, zombies, and also zombies.

Wot I Think: Bloodline Champions

By Quintin Smith on March 24th, 2011.

Those parachute pants might look like a fashion faux pas, but in his defense you almost certainly can't touch this.

I’ve had my eye on PvP arena battle game Bloodline Champions for months. A new, free-to-play, ultra polished e-sport? Colour me curious. I’ve spent the last week scratching and spitting my way out of noob status towards respectability, and feel as poised to tell you Wot I Think as I ever will be.

The Starting Line: Bloodline Champions Out

By Quintin Smith on January 13th, 2011.

All you need is blood.

Out, and still doesn’t have any good screenshots. STUNLOCK STUDIOS! Stop making my life difficult. I could make your life difficult, you know. “Stunlock Studios Celebrate Bloodline Champions Going Gold With Rare Nordic Tradition Of Eating Forty Kittens”. That’s a headline. I could do that. Actually I couldn’t do that, it wouldn’t fit on one of our posts. But you get the idea. I am a powerful man.

Champlified: Bloodline Champions Open Beta

By Quintin Smith on December 17th, 2010.

Just like that, Bloodline Champions has entered open beta! Anyone interested in downloading and playing the skill-focused arena game can do so here. Good news indeed. BC is my favourite out of all the Defense of the Ancients-inspired games that I’ve tried. It streamlines each match into a minute of white-hot combat, and the way it’s designed allows for displays of skill and cunning that make you want to stand up from your chair and salute. You can currently pre-order Bloodline Champions for £24.99 to get some special benefits when it comes out (whenever that is), so interested parties would be wise to try the game now. Thanks to Blues for the news. Open beta launch trailer follows…

A Positive: Bloodline Champions

By John Walker on December 13th, 2010.

I don't care that he's not one of the new ones - LOOK AT HIM.

Sure, you remember the time last month when Quintin posted videos of Bloodline Champions, the DOTA-inspired arena multiplayer thingy. There was a profile of the Astronomer, Nomad and Thorn. And you thought you were satisfied. But now let me tell you there’s a profile of the Blood Priest, Guardian and the Stalker. It’s like finding out about the latest gadget – you didn’t know you needed it until you found out about it. But I’m not the sort to leave you hanging. I am the sort to write any old shit to fill this gap at the top. But not to leave you hanging. So click on below and you can watch it with your left, right, or even both eyes.

Blood Is Love: Bloodline Champions Videos

By Quintin Smith on November 12th, 2010.

All you need is blood.

EDIT: Man. Not three hours after I posted this, Funcom confirmed the release date for Bloodline Champions. It’ll be out in late December or early January.

First Bloodlines, now Bloodline. A very bloody Friday morning this is turning out to be.

Excellent DoTA-inspired multiplayer arena battler Bloodline Champions is currently undergoing a lengthy beta, and developers Stunlock are holding down the fort by releasing videos covering select champions from their game. There’s no quicker way to understand BC’s emphasis on player skill than to watch a couple of these, and note how each class’s abilities all seem to have a knack to them. It’s a game that lends itself to beautiful, beautiful plays.

The Thin Red Line: Bloodline Champions

By Kieron Gillen on January 19th, 2010.

Biff!

In 2009 there was a rash of commercial Defense of the Ancients games. It continues in 2010. Since Bloodline Champions is approaching its beta, and I thought it worth at least a mention, not least that you can have a shot at signing up. The trailer follows and… this appears to be the most robotic RPS post of all time. We’ve been taken over. By mechanoid fiends. Save us!
