The new Prelude to Chaos skins bundle
With the release of the first Act of Episode 5, a new collection of skins has been released. Starting tomorrow, after the implementation of patch 5.00, players will be able to purchase the Prelude to Chaos bundle.
The latest collection, entitled Xenohunter, had a very military feel to it, as well as a heart sensor and a mini-map directly on the weapon. Obviously, it was a decorative element.
For the Prelude to Chaos collection, a completely different atmosphere is in evidence. As explained by Sean Marino, Associate Artistic Director, the dark and pleasant side of the Reaver skin, mixed with the science fiction world and the feeling of power, gave birth to this bundle.
We noticed that a lot of players loved the Reaver skins but we didn’t have a sci-fi skin that hit the same dark tone as Reaver. We literally asked ourselves, “what would edgelords who love sci-fi want in a skin? What would it feel like to kill a demon?” Looking at Reaver, the audio and animations were what sold the power fantasy the most, so we invested a lot into custom animations and sounds for the reload, equip, idle, and inspect. Of course, the two-handed sword (“Blade of Chaos”) is the epitome of what this skin should feel like because its massive size and chaotic, moving visual effects perfectly capture the power fantasy we were aiming for. No other melee weapon could come close. When you’re wielding that sword and firing the guns, you should feel like you’re on an absolute rampage.Sean Marino, Associate Artistic Director
As usual, this new set will feature skins for different weapons:
- The Melee Army (The Blade of Chaos, a two-handed sword)
- The Vandal
- The Operator
- The Shorty
- The Stinger
To get the full package, you will have to pay 8,700VP. In addition to the weapon skins, you will also get a spray and a Prelude to Chaos gunbuddy.
For fans of variations and animations, this bundle is for you. Each weapon, including melee, is available in several colours: green/red, silver/green or blue, in addition to the basic version. In addition, you can unlock a finish that chains your opponent and sends him straight to hell, a bit like the one on the Reaver skin!
This new collection, forged in fire and destruction, will be available in the shop tomorrow, after the integration of the patch 5.00.
