Stirring Abyss will be coming to you soon on the 29th of October. However, that doesn’t mean that you have to wait to get a sneak peek into some of its exciting features. Today we will be looking at some of the dark, profane, nebulous or even totally abhorrent mutations that you can acquire in Stirring Abyss. Remember, when you stare too deeply into the void, the void may stare back into you.
Transfigured by a blasphemous force, the body sprouts a writhing tentacle that grabs the target in a crushing embrace and pulls it to an adjacent tile. You will also gain the ability to strike out at your enemies with a tentacle strike. It may not have much edge, but it has a lot of power.
The diving suit is invaded by a teeming swarm of small predatory invertebrates, bound in symbiosis to the host. Enemies around the diver take damage at the end of your turn. You can also command the swarm to attack a specific target, disorienting it and dealing damage to it at the end of its turn. The Passive effect is disabled while the swarm is away doing your bidding.
You'll never need a can opener again, but you will also never be able to perform attacks of opportunity or to use Spearguns with your giant, club-like hands.
Anger, fear and hatred given form. Reach into your dark emotions and summon a reflection of yourself at the target location. The reflection acts autonomously, attacking enemies using the stats of the diver’s melee attack and inflicting an additional slowing effect on its victims.
The flesh of the newly deceased retains a vestige of its purpose, a ripe fruit ready to surrender its secrets to rending teeth. Rend Flesh, devour a corpse and ingest the power contained within. Different corpses might have different effects.
There are many more exciting mutations coming in Stirring Abyss and we hope this brief peek into the darkness is illuminating for you. Get a hold of gameplay and feel the pressure only an entire ocean can bring on the 29th of October.
