Blood Ancestors is a great looking Unreal Engine 4 powered first person competitive multiplayer arena fighter that features action packed melee, magic and projectile based combat between two opposing teams and the AI controlled ‘Blood Ancestors’.
In Blood Ancestors two teams of five players do battle in fast paced first person arena combat, attempting to slaughter enough opponents and channel their blood to activate a powerful relic, then carry that relic to a portal that will transport it back to your world. It’s not just the opposing team that you’re battling against though – there’s also a powerful team of ‘Blood Ancestors’ who are charged with protecting the relic and will hunt down all those that attempt to steal it. The Blood Ancestors will appear when the Relic is fully charged with blood, initially spawning smaller grunts and culminating with a big powerful boss.
It features three factions, six character archetypes and eighteen different classes each with unique skill sets. It’s a fun looking game, with fast paced melee, magic and projectile based combat that’s fondly reminiscent of Mirage: Arcane Warfare, but with objective-based combat which sees you having to deal with a lot more than just the other team. Brutal first person fantasy warfare with unique multiplayer gameplay, tactical combat and buckets of blood.
