Last Chance for the Batillus Community Reward in Gods & Heroes


Gods & Heroes New Content, Reduced Price, Community Reward  special ends today. More details, with new screenshots, after the jump.

Heatwave Interactive is following through on its commitment to the players of Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising with a new character class, improved gameplay, bonus options, and at the same time enticing more players to join the game with a new $29.99 price point for both box and digital versions of the MMO.

“The benefit of being a small, independent developer and publisher is our ability to act quickly and make changes that reflect community preferences and market conditions,” said Anthony Castoro, Heatwave CEO.  “The community has spoken and our analytics confirm that players really enjoy Gods & Heroes once they’ve experienced it. Based on this, we made the decision to lower the barrier to entry so a wider population of players can get in the game.”

With a commitment to ongoing improvements and additions to the game, Heatwave is rolling out the new Scout character class next week. The Scout is a ranged combat specialist that uses a sling or bow to battle advancing foes with well-placed shots and by using the power of the Gods to increase his damage and range.

Heatwave is also rewarding its “Founders of Rome” community with an exclusive never-seen-before minion. Batillus, the long dead archer famed for his prowess with the bow, will be granted to players who have purchased Gods & Heroes and subscribed by July 31, 2011.

Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising is a full-scale MMORPG that immerses players into a universe of authentic Roman myth and legend. Players take on the role of a Demigod and celebrated hero of the Roman army who sets out on a quest for vengeance against an ancient enemy. While battling in the midst of Roman landmarks and legendary scenery, players can build and command their own squad of minions, customize their massive estate, combat mythological creatures, and unleash an arsenal of weapons.
