Blood of Heroes is a PvP action game with combat similar to the up-close-and-personal For Honor, and it’s launching a PC beta test next week. Vizor Games announced the test period today, scheduling a May 4 start date. Today’s beta announcement is also the first time developer Vizor Games has publicly shown off any considerable amount of the game, which is set to launch on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X | S later this year.
If you’re interested in joining in on the Blood of Heroes beta, you can sign up on the game’s website.
As stated in a press release, you’ll be able to choose from six of Blood of Heroes’ “diverse group of fearless fighters” when participating in the closed beta. Vizor guarantees medieval Nordic arenas, unique fighting styles, weapons, and abilities to utilize when dispatching your enemies in one-on-one or group combat modes.
Along with For Honor, Vizor game director Dmitry Voronov explained that Dark Souls is another one of Blood of Heroes’ inspirations:
“We wanted to make a game that we’d absolutely love to play ourselves: a wicked, adrenaline-pumped world, inspired by Dark Souls, with unforgiving PvP battles and warriors who show no pity or fear.”
He continues, saying, “In Blood of Heroes, just like in history, heroes are not always knights in shining armour who fight for the greater good. They can be relentless, sly, vengeful, or, vice versa, supporting and protective. Their essence is tried and revealed by combat. We tried to give them personality, so the player could make a choice that fits their mood and gameplay style.”
As we wait for Vizor to give up more information on its upcoming close-combat multiplayer game, you can see a group of screenshots below.
