WALNUT CREEK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Maximum Games launches a social media giveaway for Lichdom: Battlemage, a first-person spellcaster where players defeat challenging bosses and hordes of monsters using raw, unrestrained magical powers. In the eight weeks between now and the game’s March 22nd launch on PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, gamers will have numerous chances to win a pre-order copy of the game, as well as an exclusive Lichdom: Battlemage t-shirt.
Each Friday starting today, Maximum Games will release a video at 9am EST on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter detailing one of the distinct magical Sigils used within the game: Fire, Ice, Lightning, Kinesis, Corruption, Necromancy, Delirium, and Phase. Each Sigil is a base from which you can craft thousands of spells. Today’s Sigil is Fire, which is often used for pure destruction.
“Crafting is the core of the game,” said Jon Manahan, Director of Production at Maximum Games. “These videos will provide gamers a sneak peek into the immense control and creativity placed in the hands of players.”
Along with each Sigil video, a question will be asked that viewers can answer via YouTube or Facebook comments, or a Tweet to @MaximumGames. Contestants have until the following Friday to submit a response, after which Maximum Games will randomly select five (5) winners. All winners will receive an exclusive Lichdom: Battlemage t-shirt, but one (1) randomly selected winner will also receive a free pre-order copy of the game through Amazon for either PS4 system or Xbox One. The giveaway is open to US contestants only.
Additionally, Maximum Games today released a new Lichdom: Battlemage video (see below) showcasing the game’s story, setting and voice talent, headlined by Troy Baker. Baker is one of the best and most recognizable video game voice-over artists in the industry, with credits ranging from BioShock: Infinite to The Last of Us.
Here is the new Lichdom: Battlemage gameplay and voice talent trailer:
Lichdom: Battlemage is a unique spellcaster with zero mana bars and absolutely no cooldowns, allowing for fast-paced gameplay reminiscent of a first-person shooter (FPS). However, unlike FPS games, Lichdom: Battlemage relies solely on spells crafted by the player to fight off evil forces.
