Hello everyone! In this article, we wanted to discuss some of the characters you will encounter in our game. Today, we’ll introduce you to Zeus, Hades and Metis. We will even share a brief a history lesson on the background of these characters and their roles in Battle Of Olympus so sit back, relax and enjoy.


Zeus

In Greek mythology, Zeus is the god of sky and thunder. He was seen as a king and ruler of humanity and all creation. On top of that, he was also the father of Ares, Artemis and Athena, who you will also find in our game. We will talk about them further down the line. Zeus used his iconic thunderbolt not only to dominate the weather, but also to bring justice and order to the Greek pantheon and humanity, which is the reason why people worshiped him.


In Battle Of Olympus, Zeus’s major feature and his exclusive power is lightning. He will channel his fury and devastated his enemies with shocks and special moves. He can zap, stun and throw bolts from a distance, making him a jack-of-all-trades in ranged and melee combat. Any poor soul that faces Zeus will require speed and accuracy to dodge his attacks, otherwise, they shall feel his wrath.

His kit is versatile and flashy, making him easy to play as, but difficult to master. Overall, he has a playstyle that will suit even the most experienced players, allowing them to relentlessly overpower their opponents.


Hades

Hades reigns over the realm of the dead across the river Styx. He is the eldest of the Titan Cronus’ several children, which include his brother Zeus, son of the Titan Cronus. Following the defeat of the Titans, Hades was appointed to rule the underworld and ensure that no departed souls left it. In Ancient Greek his name means “the unseen one,” which was used by various other Greeks to address him out of fear of pronouncing his name.


In Battle of Olympus, Hades' domain is death and he attacks in a cold, calculated manner. He uses toxins to defeat his enemies, where even approaching him can be fatal. Hades is a silent fighter who doesn’t mess around and makes short work of his opponents. His fighting style mostly incorporates taekwondo and boxing, with his his special moves reflecting exactly that. Anyone who confronts Hades, must plan to strike quickly before moving in for the kill or it might be too late.


Metis

One of the daughters of the Titans Oceanus and Tethys, Metis was an Oceanid nymph, Zeus’ first wife, and is now a major character in Battle Of Olympus. Known as a trickster, her domain consisted of wisdom and cunning. Ancient Greeks believed that she was even able to shapeshift and morph into other beings.


Metis is a quick, nimble fighter whose combos rely on magic. Using a combination of tai chi, kicks and spinning attacks, her special moves reflect her character in Greek mythology. Therefore, expect her to transform and send powerful ranged spells from a distance. In order to defeat her, you have to be patient and learn her moveset. It’s all about adapting, overcoming and executing when going up against Metis.
