Update “Age of Nagual”: unique Bullet Time, Fury of the Beast and a new Character

9 October 2019
Update

Hail to all the last ones standing!

Today we publish a major update for Cuisine Royale, it is time to reveal final important new features to come with it. We kept the really cool ones for today! At the end of the text you’ll find a full change log as usual.

There are now three characters!

Sniper Annie and bouncer Clyde now have the company of Itz Ocelotl - a war time shaman of the Aztec people. 

In the game he will be present in four outfits: standard Aztec warrior, High Priest, Jaguar Knight and Eagle Knight.

An Aztec warrior does not wear pale face underwear. But he does wear talismans, giving him some tactical bonuses. Together with Ocelotl you’ll be able to unlock and use 9 talismans giving you additional souls for rituals, kills, food consumption, jumps as well as a 30% discount for mystic signs and ritual usage. Ocelotl  can also wear any of the current masks.

Pick your costume wisely, since having sinner souls in a battle becomes even more important.

FROM NOW ON EVERY CHARACTER HAS A UNIQUE ABILITY

The ability is activated for sinner souls. So, now the question of which character to play is not purely aesthetic anymore, but a tactical choice.

Annie “Pinup” Ashley

Annie “Pinup” Ashley can slow down time by half for three seconds, creating a time paradox. This is mostly useful to aim better and blow the enemy’s head off from greater distance. Especially since in this state Annie ‘feels’ her victims much better and can deliver pin-accurate shots even when the lighting conditions or enemy visibility are poor. 

After time is over, temporal fugue sling shots Annie back to the present time, so be ready as  that 1.5 seconds you stole will catch up with you really fast.

The time paradox means Annie can kill in the past, changing the present. Or die in the future, changing her past. Sound strange? Well, that is what a paradox is all about. Playing with time - is a dangerous thing.

Annie’s ability - is the first implementation of time paradox technology in multiplayer games, and we are sure you’ll like it!

Clyde “Dozen” Mullican

Clyde “Dozen” Mullican will really prove he can be worth a dozen in a fight! He can call upon the fury of his hidden personality - the Beast. in this state Clyde becomes faster, stronger and thinks only about killing ‘em all.

Though while being in a Beast Fury, he doesn’t remember how to shoot or even wield any melee weapons, so he switches to killing with bare hands. Anyway, this ability can switch the situation in a fight if Clyde is cornered. And increase in running speed can help him close the distance if his goal is to corner somebody else…

Itz Ocelotl

Last but not least, Itz Ocelotl. In each of his appearances, Ocelotl is a mighty shaman. He can open the door to the spirit world and move through it to another place in our reality. 

while traveling the spirit world, he is invisible and intangible for others. But he also can not use any material objects - including driving or using stationary machine guns. Also, he still leaves footprints in the sand, marking his presence. Smoke from the Cigar of Ogum exists in all worlds at the same time, also demasking him. Remember, they warned that smoking kills?..

Killing Ocelotl while in the spirit world is impossible, but an observant enemy can notice a strange flickering in the air moments before Ocelotl steps out. This can help to prepare a rather warm welcome for him. So beware and plan your trip beforehand. Used wisely, this ability can help you either escape a difficult fight, or prepare a clever ambush from a direction nobody expects.

Current Update will be delivered to Pc users. Xbox will follow in nearest couple of days after we get it approved by the platform.
