Bandai Namco Entertainment America Launches Rise of Incarnates Now Available Exclusively on Steam for PC
SAN JOSE Calif., – July 1, 2015 – BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America today launches an all new free-to-play competitive co-op battle arena game, Rise of Incarnates. Available now exclusively on STEAM for PC, Rise of Incarnates features a 2-versus-2 (2v2) competitive hybrid game that blends element of both fighting and third person shooting. Teamwork is key for players to dominate opponents.

Rise of Incarnates is set in a shattered timeline amongst the desolation of what were formerly Earth’s most iconic cities. A phantom galactic intellect has brought super-powered champions together to form teams and battle to determine the fate of the universe. All champions have the ability to summon a deity or transform into one by awakening the unique powers of mythical gods, elevating their strengths and bolstering the team dynamic.

“Rise of Incarnates’ detailed 3D cityscapes, narrative and focus on camaraderie propels the game to a deeper level than the standard fighting game,” said In Joon Hwang, Director of Digital Games. “The diverse set of characters with varying play-styles will challenge and engage players to bring an unparalleled gameplay experience.”

Featuring 3D combat gameplay, players can choose from a number of powerful warriors, and must work in tandem with their partner to combine character strengths while covering their teammates vulnerabilities. Partners fight two-by-two to take down other champions who have strayed from their comrade’s side. In a world with lethal symbiotic teams and a ravaged landscape, the only option left is to fight, and a strong partnership is vital as players utilize the abilities of their chosen characters and develop strategies for combat.

To celebrate the launch of Rise of Incarnates, all returning early access players will receive an exclusive customization accessory for the character Zeus “Olympus” along with 7-day LP and experience (EXP) boost tickets. For players new to Rise of Incarnates, a welcome bonus for those playing in the month of July will receive a 2-week LP and EXP boost ticket, which will expedite leveling up and unlock characters.

Additionally, a special live stream featuring Mike Ross and the Evil Geniuses team of JWong, Kbrad, and PR Balrog will take place today July 1, 2015 at 2:00pm PT via Twitch []. Players can tune in and join beloved pro fighting gamers to get a first look at interesting game features, interviews, tips and strategies.
