Ubisoft has released a gameplay and details video today for the upcoming second DLC of Assassin’s Creed Origins: Curse of the Pharaohs launching on March 13rd for both Season Pass and individual purchase.
Curse of the Pharaohs, the third major expansion for Assassin’s Creed Origins, takes Bayek to find a mysterious artifact in Thebes, where he immediately runs into much more than he bargained for. Instead of the shadowy-but-still-human Order of the Ancients, he finds undead pharaohs materializing in the streets and slaughtering civilians.
In Curse of the Pharaohs, the players will be fighting against previous Pharaoh both in the real world and in the afterlife plus some giant scorpions in all new locations such as Aaru. Player will be visiting each Pharaoh’s tombs and venturing into their afterlife, having a chance of obtaining unique items that can’t be found anywhere else.
The Hydrolyst Eidolon is an enormous and tall Eidolon that has the ability to alter the climate causing green lightning strikes to occasionally strike around him. Similar to the Gantulyst Eidolon, the Hydrolyst Eidolon has a total of 6 Synovia parts and will take a minimum of 3 Charged lures to capture.
Summoning Gantulyst Eidolon
To summon the Hydrolyst Eidolon, you must have first captured the Gantulyst Eidolon and offer the Radiant Eidolon Shard from it to the shrine in the middle of the lake. Depending on the amount of players you have, each player will have to contribute a Radiant Eidolon Shard.
Occasionally, the Hydrolyst Eidolon will summon purple Vomvalyst Blooms which tethers nearby Vomvalyst and makes them invulnerable until the Bloom has been dealt with. Occasionally, the Hydrolyst will emit a beam that will drain player’s energy if they come in contact with it and the frequency of these beam increases as the battle goes on. The Hydrolyst also has continuously homing beams like the Teralyst but are much more accurate.
The Hydrolyst will continuously summon green lightning bolts and those can easily be dodged by avoiding the green bubbles on the floor which indicate where the lightning bolt is going to go and same thing goes for the mines that it occasionally drops which are also green circles on the floor.
Watch out for when the Hydrolyst shoots his gun into the air as it will rain down a bunch of explosive homing projectiles. Also with like every other Eidolon, when you take down one of it’s limbs, it will leave a residue which deals a lot of damage to players that stay on it.
Capturing the Hydrolyst Eidolon will reward 2 Brilliant Eidolon Shards, 2 Radiant Eidolon Shards, 2 Riven Transmuters and a mod from it’s loot table which has a chance to be from Operation Gate Crush alongside a bunch of Sentinel cores.
The Gantulyst Eidolon is an enormous and tall Eidolon that utilizes radiant beams of Sentient energy and an enormous boulder arm. Unlike the original Eidolon, the Gantulyst Eidolon has a total of 6 Synovia parts whilst the Teralyst only has 4. The minimum required amount of lures to capture the Gantulyst Eidolon is 3 charged lures. The Gantulyst Eidolon is the only way for players to obtain Radiant Eidolon Shards which is required to summon the Hydrolyst Eidolon.
Summoning Gantulyst Eidolon
To summon the Gantulyst Eidolon, you must have first captured the Teralyst Eidolon and offer the Brilliant Eidolon Shard from it to the shrine in the middle of the lake. Depending on the amount of players you have, each player will have to contribute a Brilliant Eidolon Shard.
Throughout the fight, the Gantulyst Eidolon will consistently spawn out homing balls of sentient energy from it’s back that can be easily dodged due to how slow it is. Occasionally the Gantulyst Eidolon will smash the ground with either a stomp or with it’s boulder arm causing at long distance knockback.
This Eidolon’s main feature is it’s two radiant beam moves and it’s ability to shield. The Gantulyst Eidolon either causes multiple beams from the sky to come down and create a continuous pillar of light (think hammer of dawn) after stomping the ground or it will shoot something into the sky causing a prism of light beams to continuously rotate (disco laser). The Gantulyst Eidolon will occasionally shield itself with a bubble that block incoming damage from outside it, forcing the player to get more in range of the Eidolon. Both of these do a bunch of damage and can easily one-shot players that aren’t ready for it.
The Gantulyst Eidolon being captured rewards 1 Brilliant Eidolon Shard, 1 Radiant Eidolon Shard and a drop from it loot tables which contains mods from Operation: Mutalist Incursions but those drop rates are super rare alongside a bunch of Sentient Cores.
Blanka is the second character of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition‘s Season 3 Character Pack. He will be rolling out on February 20th to all platforms.
In SFV: AE, Blanka is living peacefully with his mother, and has adapted well to being introduced back into society. One day, a suspicious salesman approaches him and offers a way to make Blanka famous by mass producing a doll made in Blanka’s likeness. Will it work? Find out in his character story mode!
Blanka is available individually for MSRP $5.99 or 100,000 Fight Money OR as part of the Season 3 Character Pass for MSRP $29.99, which unlocks Sakura, Falke, Cody, G, and Sagat as they become available. If you purchase Blanka as part of the Season 3 Character Pass or with real money, you will also get his Battle Costume with colors 3-10 and default costume colors 3-10.
V-Skill: Coward Crouch
Blanka immediately ducks for cover for a short time before rising back up. His V-Skill can avoid many attacks, including fireballs. After performing Coward Crouch, Blanka can follow up with either Wild Lift (Punch Button) or Raid Jump (Kick Button). Wild Lift sees Blanka move forward while swinging his arms up to launch the opponent in the air and can be followed up by a normal, special move, or even a Critical Art. Using Raid Jump, Blanka swiftly jumps in the air where he can use any mid-air attack to advance.
V-Trigger I: Jungle Dynamo
Blanka’s V-Trigger I gives his special roll attacks more damage and can then be followed up by certain attacks, including his Critical Art. It also powers up his Electric Thunder and changes the animation so Blanka steps forward while unleashing the electric current. On hit, the opponent is launched slightly in the air and can be followed up with a rolling attack.
Finally, Jungle Dynamo unlocks Ground Shave Rolling (HP+HK), which can be used as a combo extender or a way to charge in. This move was a super move in previous games, but is now a special move in SFV: AE.
V-Trigger II: Lightning Beast
Lightning Beast unlocks a special move, Rolling Cannon (Direction + HP+HK), which can be performed after using Rolling Attack, Back Step Rolling, and Vertical Rolling. Rolling Cannon can be used in multiple ways, such as extending a combo for more damage or changing positions to surprise the opponent.
Critical Art: Dynamic Rolling
In this Critical Art, Blanka slams his opponent into the ground in a series of electrifying rolls that ends in a move reminiscent of Lightning Cannonball from Street Fighter IV.
