New Dark Eclipse Update Adds More Characters and Player Bonuses to PlayStation VR Title

PlayStation VR MOBA Dark Eclipse updated last month with new characters and a Ranked Mode. Today, developer Sunsoft has announced its next winter update, increasing that character roster even further as well as including some festive winter skins.

Dark Eclipse

In its latest update, Dark Eclipse will give players access to three new playable characters. These are:

  • Owen – A Leader that can channel his Energy Boost ability to muster strength and passively increase his movement speed before unleashing a deadly attack;
  • Sosei – A support Dominator that can sustain lengthy combat and swing the tide of battle by reviving fallen Leaders and healing soldiers, knocking back nearby enemy units in the process;
  • Jysook – An assassin Dominator with explosive abilities who can lay bomb traps around the battlefield and self-destruct to secure crucial kills.

And because it’s the festive season Sunsoft has got into the Christmas spirit with four new skins, a Yeti hand skin for your current character plus winter skins for characters Veronika, Wuntasto and Jysook.

That’s not all. In the spirit of giving the studio has one final treat in store. From now on, all players who log in to Dark Eclipse will receive daily in-game gifts, including Eclipse Points, player icons, a Leader and hand skins.

Dark Eclipse

The title got a mixed response when it first launched a couple of months ago, with VRFocus giving it an average 3-stars, saying: “Dark Eclipse works well enough, but the mixture of MOBA and RTS elements means it feels watered-down and lacking a firm identity. In addition, the lack of a large community of online players presents a problem for an online-focused title. For a free to play title, it is solid, and worth considering for RTS fans.” As it is free to play and seen free updates arrive, MOBA fans may now want to take a look.

VRFocus will continue its coverage of Dark Eclipse, reporting back with any new announcements.
