KOEI TECMO AMERICA REVEALS IMPRESSIVE ‘AWAKENING’ ABILITIES IN BERSERK AND THE BAND OF THE HAWK
Unlock Each Character’s Hidden Potential and Take on Demonic Foes with Enhanced Weaponry
Burlingame, Calif. – January 20, 2017 – KOEI TECMO America today detailed new powerful, game-changing abilities in developer Omega Force’s most brutal Warriors title to date, Berserk and the Band of the Hawk. Slated to release on February 21, 2017, the game will launch for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, digitally on the PlayStation®Vita handheld system, and on Windows PC via Steam®. A selection of brand-new screenshots was released alongside today’s announcement to help introduce these exciting abilities as well as the game’s demonic monsters and battlefields.
In Berserk and the Band of the Hawk, playable characters have devastating abilities that must be “awakened” to draw out their true potential. Awakening abilities offers overwhelming temporary boosts that allow players to demolish hordes of enemies in their path. Players can take advantage of Guts’ Berserker Armor to unleash deadly blows, Griffith’s demonic Femto form to deal swift bursts of damage, and Zodd’s giant Apostle form to effortlessly topple foes.
Players will encounter a smorgasbord of fearsome foes throughout Berserk and the Band of the Hawk. Evil Spirits, Ogres, Kelpies, Golems, Trolls and Demonic Knights are just a handful of the many enemies that players must annihilate during their adventure. Collect raw materials and upgrade weaponry outside of battle to increase attack damage and unlock new combos to wipe out these savage opponents.
