"Twisted, mutilated bodies...comprised of multiple dead limbs and body parts from various corpses." "Lumbering, rotting" bodies that "have made the final transition into true undeath." Grotesque creatures that "consume fleshy corpses" for sustenance and healing...
Goth party? Parent/teacher night? Windows user conference? Halloween nightmare?
Nope...it's the latest new character ability revealed for Warcraft III!
Warcraft III creators Blizzard Entertainment have continued their recent revelations about the upcoming game by divulging more information about Undead Ghoul and Abomination units:
Ghouls are the basic warriors of the Undead Scourge. These lumbering, rotting corpses were once Zombies that have made the final transition into true 'undeath'. Ghouls have great stamina and revel in combat with living beings. Ghouls are ravenous cannibals who can regenerate their wounds by eating the flesh of fallen warriors.Both units will be able to employ a special "Cannibalize" ability to "consume fleshy corpses to heal hitpoints."
The twisted, mutilated bodies of the Abominations are comprised of multiple dead limbs and body parts from various corpses. These enormous warriors love to carve flesh and tear their enemies apart. The slow moving and slow-witted Abominations constantly drip blood behind them and smell like a disease ridden slaughterhouse. They carry large cleavers into combat and wield various sickle-bladed hooks on their disproportionate limbs.
This tasty new feature should make for some interesting battles as each unit you kill provides more healing fodder for your undead enemies. As if Halloween wasn't scary enough!
