Desperados 3 will be on display at gamescom next week. However, the publisher has already decided to release a trailer presenting the skills of one of the characters.
"Born and raised in New Orleans, Isabelle has mastered the occult techniques of Voodoo. She is able to slip into the mind of her enemies and control their actions. Also she can establish a dark bond between two foes, that let them share the same fate - so if one throat gets sliced, the other one will also bleed out. But these powers come with a price for Isabelle, a blood sacrifice she has to offer whenever she decides to use her powers. She cannot use just any blood for this, as it has to be her very own,"
...reads the character's description written under the trailer.
The skills of the mysterious shaman come down to controlling enemies with the help of voodoo magic. Isabelle can completely take over the mind of an enemy, so that thay can become a puppet in her hands, or link two opponents so that they both die when one is killed. The heroine also has a cat at her disposal, which is able to distract her opponents.
Desperados is a series of games resembling the Commandos series, which takes place in the wild west. The German studio Mimimimi Productions is working on the third installment, having such titles as Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, which enjoyed a very warm reception from the players, under its belt.
The launch of Desperados 3 is scheduled for December this year.
