Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen: The Dark Knight Rises in Game Lore

SBFordSBFord Former Associate EditorMember LegendaryPosts: 33,127

The Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen team is ready to reveal the Dark Knight, one of the playable classes included in the forthcoming title by Brad McQuaid. The Dark Knight is a front line fighter who can dual wield 2-handed weapons.

Dark Knights have also been known to practice in the arts of necromancy. They use these dark magics to instill fear, inflict pain and raise the dead to serve them. They are notorious for siphoning energies and life forces from their enemies causing great weaknesses while strengthening themselves, though there have been cases where they apply disease to their victims.

    Oh look, it's a generic evil knight... you know, why doesn't he just flat out say, "We're using the same classes from Vanguard." Straight to the point, and will most likely be at least 90% accurate.

    Hell, why doesn't he just call the game Vanguard 2? Because all indications are that's what he's trying to create.

    AN' DERE AIN'T NO SUCH FING AS ENUFF DAKKA, YA GROT! Enuff'z more than ya got an' less than too much an' there ain't no such fing as too much dakka. Say dere is, and me Squiggoff'z eatin' tonight!

    We are born of the blood. Made men by the blood. Undone by the blood. Our eyes are yet to open. FEAR THE OLD BLOOD.

    Lol, well it doesn't help when the initial post literally uses the title of a movie that has nothing to do with this game as the tag line.  Its clever, and I get it, but it certainly doesn't help to separate the two, vastly different, fantasy characters from one another.  I agree that Dark Knight sounds cheaper than Shadow Knight, Death Knight,  Dread Knight and the like, but thats the basic design model this class will follow as well.. and those names have already been used.  The list of creative, cool sounding  synonyms is shrinking for that class type.

    I'm interested if this is a hint to their being a full-blown Necromancer class.

    You act as though this is the first time anyone has used a class type similar to one found in another game.  How many games have featured a warrior, wizard, cleric/priest etc.?

    This could end up being very interesting.

    Pretty stupid thing to complain about considering one of the only things good about Vangaurd were the classes =P

    Some people like to spout shite all over public forums to try and appear cool and correct.  This guy failed the job lot abysmally !
