SRG Studios has released the first Champion Shift teaser, featuring a first look at Sun Wukong. Champion Shift is a co-op action roguelike set in a world of magical futurism where players take on the role of mythical legends with the ability to change form in a variety of different vehicles.
The first gameplay teaser shows Sun Wukong’s upgrades, such as the Chakrams in Champion mode and the deadly Turbo Blades in Vehicle mode. Champions also control the power of thunder, among other mythical upgrades, which Wukong uses to hit enemies from a distance.
In Champion Shift, The Dominion looms over everything; a shadow corporation bent on world domination. The balance has shifted, as ancient artifacts have given the company the ability to summon and capture legendary champions of myth in an attempt to capture the forces within them.
Although weakened by their arrival, Sun Wukong along with the other captured champions managed to escape their shackles and disappear into the streets. Now the hunt begins; equipped with the renewed power to transform into vehicle forms, it is time to fight your way into the heart of the Dominion and destroy it from within. Revenge is a dish best served cold.
Each champion has his own skills and abilities that you can use to decimate your enemies. No champion will traverse the dangers of Dominion in a single playthrough, but falling short is part of the fun. Try out different champions, skills and upgrades and defeat the final boss – alone or with up to three other friends.
Does the Dominion pose too much of a challenge, or do you find it too easy to reach the final boss? Adjust the difficulty of your runs to create the perfect challenge.
