Ubisoft have unveiled the fourth playable hero in The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot – the Runaway.
The Runaway is the daughter of one of the greatest harpsichord duos in the land, but – feeling chafed by the prim-and-proper life – she took her axe and legged it in search of adventure. In short, the fourth hero is a teenage girl who hates her parents.
The Runaway is a speedy type with mid-range attacks and a “custom musical axe”, although I’m not sure how the latter translates into gameplay terms (other than “twat people in the face with it”). Perhaps she can play riffs that make people explode. I suppose we’ll have to wait and see.
The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot is a free-to-play dungeon-crawler that has you build up your own castle while attempting to break into the castles of others to steal their hard-earned loot, and it’s currently in closed beta. You can sign up for the beta here, or check out some screenshots and art of the Runaway below.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
