The upcoming PS4 exclusive free to play twin stick shooter KillStrain got a new character today, announced during a livestreamed event.
The new character is Rook, and he’s a juggernaut, meaning that he’s mainly defensive. His enormous shield definitely gives that away.
Here is his in game model.
Like all KillStrain characters, he has three special moves:
Advance lets him jump towards an enemy, causing damage on landing and pushing him away.
Bulwark is a channeled mode. As long as you hold L2 you can hide behind the shield, mitigating attacks from the front. Of course it cannot be held forever.
Storm Shield activates an energy field aptly shaped like a rook, that not only mitigates damage, but also damages enemies it touches.
Considering how much I enjoy playing tanks, I think I just found my new character of choice.
