Evolution Studio, Chinese-based development studio of YC Games is pleased to announce one of many new content updates once its free-to-play PvP MOBA Blood of Steel has launched. This first update, coming soon after release, introduces two heroes and a new customization feature called the Star System. The Star System allows players to personalise the outfits of their chosen generals in a variety of outfits with a contemporary twist. New items can be either purchased in the Blood of Steel store using the in-game currency, or by getting tokens by completing daily quests. Blood of Steel will launch as a free-to-play title on Steam on February 20th.
In addition to the Star System, 2 new heroes are available. The “Eternal Emperor” Ying Zheng was the founder of the Qin dynasty and ruled as the first emperor of a unified China. Equipped in the black Qin iron eagle armor, Ying is the only general in Blood of Steel that uses a chariot, mounted with bladed wheels, capable of mowing down enemies. Accompanying him on the chariot are the Emperor’s bodyguards, also wearing the infamous black armour, firing arrows at all enemies foolish enough to be in their path.
Zhen Ji, also known as “Luo Shen”, was the first wife of Cao Pi, the first ruler of the state of Cao Wei in the Three Kingdoms period. She was believed to have been the reincarnation of the “Goddess of the River Luo”, a deity in ancient China. Zhen Ji leads a deadly squad of crossbow assassins on behalf of the leader of the Han empire, Emperor Hanwu. Zhen Ji and her squad are masters at setting up deadly ambushes and also excel at equipment manipulation.
“Blood of Steel is constantly refining itself to create the ultimate modern wartime strategy experience. With the new Star System players can further personalise their experience in a fun and unique way,” said Cao, Game Director of YC Games. “Ying Zheng and Zhen Ji add new gameplay elements adding to the already deep battle mechanics of the game. We’re excited to announce the many updates we have planned for the game, each improving the playing experience.”
