God of Blades Prequel Available for Free

Also free is the prequel to the forthcoming port of iOS hit

. Dubbed Slayers, the one or two player minigame sees each side putting a team of 25 footsoldiers and champions on a deadly collision course with each other:

The match begins with each player selecting their champion. In addition to the champion, each player begins with a bank of 25 foot-soldiers, and every time one of these soldiers is cut down, another rushes to join the fray.

Champions are far stronger than foot-soldiers and enter the struggle when a player’s reinforcements are depleted, or when one player successfully battles their way to their opponents end of the bridge. Players gain ground by defeating their opponents without losing their soldier. Victory is achieved when one player bests the other’s champion.

If you do enjoy Slayers, the devs also say that you can support them with a yearly membership.
