Battlerite is getting a new champion today in the form of Pestilus aka “Lord of the Swarm”.
The new champion is a part of the new massive winter update, which includes the new ranking system with leagues and divisions, making competitive play a lot easier.
“Pestilus aka “Lord of the Swarm” is the head priest of Quna and serves the royal family, but secretly worships an evil deity,” reads the official description. “His schemes manipulated the king into exiling the crown prince. Pestilus unleashes swarms of insects to infest and cripple his enemies, releasing his innermost darkest desires.”
