Mirage: Arcane Warfare adds bots to make up numbers

First person hack-and-slash-and-magic 'em up Mirage: Arcane Warfare [official site] this week received its first major update since launching in May, with new weapons, maps, and abilities added to the game.

Mirage: Arcane Warfare free to play this weekend

I've sunk a fair chunk of time into Mirage: Arcane Warfare [official site], the first-person melee brawler in which you can both fling magic spells and lop a man's head off with a giant axe, and I've enjoyed nearly all of it.

The other one is "give me coffee or give me death" but none of the Mirage: Arcane Warfare [official site] characters seem inclined towards the latter at the moment. The Vigilist - the guardian-esque class in the game - is all…
