Battle Chasers: Nightwar – Knolan spotlight
Posted on 22 hours ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Switch, Videos | 0 comments | 0 Likes
THQ Nordic issued the first hero spotlight for Battle Chasers: Nightwar. Below, you can find a video focusing on the old mage Knolan.
Here’s an overview of Knolan:
Knolan is a wizened old mage troubled by the rapid decline of mana – the source of all magic power in the world. In Battle Chasers: Nightwar, he is not only a powerful damage dealer, but also a strong healer capable of reviving a fallen team mate. With his huge spell book and a short temper, Knolan is far more dangerous than he may first appear. He can shoot arcane missiles, fireballs and ice lances at his enemies and unleash a devastating firestorm. One of his powerful Burst abilities is Eldritch Summon: tentacles from another plane reach out through a portal and are damaging all foes.

We have a little more information about the technical performance of Doom on Switch. Polygon, who went hands-on with the game, reports that it runs at 30 frames per second. In case you’re curious, Doom is 60 frames per second on other consoles.
The site does add that “the frame rate dipped considerably” during parts of the first level. While it usually recovered, it stayed low during one occasion. But a spokesperson told Polygon that Doom is still being optimized for Switch, so hopefully everything will be cleaned up before the holiday launch.

Much in the way that Tantalus became associated with Wii U ports back in the day, Panic Button is helping to bring prominent games to Switch. Digital Foundry confirms that the studio is porting two high-profile games to Nintendo’s console. Panic Button is leading the way on both Rocket League and Doom for Switch. Psyonix and Bethesda are very much involved with the two titles respectively, but it sounds like Panic Button is primarily in charge.
