SotM Digital Sneak Peek #2: Villainous Villain View

Hello again fellow Sentinels fans! As promised, we've got another screen to show you. Today, we’ll show you a mock-up of what it will look like during a villain turn.

Before we get to that - WOW! Your feedback to Sneak Peek #1 tells us that we’re really headed in the right direction. Given the mixed reviews the gameplay prototype garnered back in January, we couldn't be happier with the reception. One of our highest priorities is to stay true to the game, and the best judges of that are the fans, so thank you.

Just like last time, we have to start with the disclaimer that these are still mock-ups. We know we hinted at some in-engine footage by the end of this month but unfortunately, while we have a bunch of it working, it’s not as pretty yet as we’d like. Rather than show it to you now with all the bubblegum and scotch tape, we figured we would hold off till it’s really something to see.

So what are we looking at here?


First of all, you can see that Baron Blade’s initial scheme of pulling down the moon has failed, so he has flipped and donned his battle armor to take on our heroes himself (well, a powersuited self at least). The Visionary, The Wraith and Tachyon are still fighting, but unfortunately, Legacy is incapacitated (poor guy just can’t catch a break).

The Velociraptor pack and Pterodactyl thief are causing trouble, as they are wont to do, but The Wraith has managed to get her Utility Belt back into play so don’t count our heroes out just yet.

During the villain turn, several things happen that we can’t show very well with static images, but rest assured, we think you’ll be pretty happy. As always, we’d love to hear what you think, so let us know in the comments below. And if you missed it, check out Sneak Peek #1 here.
