UbiSoft has announced an upcoming expansion pack for their poular MMORPG Shadowbane, developed by Wolfpak Studios. The new expansion will expand the Shadowbane universe and adds new content to enhance the gaming experience.

New features:

  • New playable race, the Nephilim half-demons with bat-like wings, horns and the ability to mask their infernal nature.
  • More than 30 adventure areas for players to explore, engage, and challenge those who dare enter: Ruins, volcanic wastes, demons of all description, and corrupted natural creatures.
  • New classes include the Doomsayer and the Sentinel:

    The Doomsayer: A priest of Chaos whose power comes from the worship of the Dark Lords. They are able to use their powers of Chaos to inflict harm and weaken opponents. Doomsayers also posses a good repertoire of heals, debuffs, and pet spells.

    The Sentinel: Stout, holy warriors who devote their lives to holding Chaos at bay and cleansing the world of its presence. Their powers are a hybrid of the Crusader and the Templar – with anti-chaos powers such as dispells, debuffs, and demon-only blasts.

  • New Disciplines include the Darksworn and the Conjurer:

    The Darksworn: Underlings dedicated to the service of the Dark Lords, who are given in turn a battery of infernal powers.

    The Conjurer: Pet discipline used to summon Chaotic entities. These creatures are pet versions adapted from the new monster content added with the expansion pack.
