We first heard about the upcoming Anarchy Reigns game — known as Max Anarchy in Japan — back in January this year, when reports revealed that Platinum Games was currently working on the online beat ‘em up title. Although details were fairly scarce at that point, we did know that it would be heading to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Shortly after the initial announcement, both Platinum Games and Sega released a couple of character reveal trailers. The first gave us a glimpse at Sasha, the Ice Queen, and the second provided us with a sneak preview of Zero. We now have some more good news for those that are thinking of buying the game, as some new Anarchy Reigns details have just been unveiled.
According to Giuseppe Nelva over on the dualshockers.com website, Sega has recently released some brand new information for the upcoming game including a bunch of new screenshots, and more details on characters and multiplayer modes. Although we haven’t got a specific release dare as of yet, we do know that the Anarchy Reigns title is due to arrive next January.
The game’s single player story mode will in fact be split into two different stories, a White Side and a Black Side. In one side players will be taking control of a character called Leo, while the other side has gamers controlling Jack. The two separate stories do end up interacting with each other, which will eventually create a single bigger picture.
Sega also provided details on four of the characters from the Anarchy Reigns game including Leo, Nikolai, Baron and Matilda. Leo is a member of the Strike One team, and an officer of the Bureau for Public Safety (BPS). This character is an expert in a martial art called Cybrid Art, and uses a sword named Positron Blade as his fighting weapon.
Nikolai on the other hand is an ex sergeant of the Special Forces, and the current commander of the Strike One team. Nikolai has cybernetic arms called Blitz Tesla, which can focus the power of a reactor against his enemies to deliver lightning attacks. Meanwhile, Baron — real name Blacker Baron — is a bounty hunter, and an old rival of Jack.
Baron is equipped with the Super Sexy Fist of Fire. Thanks to this character’s cybernetic arms, he can control the power of the flames in order to burn his enemies while he’s punching them. Last but not least is Matilda, who is the cybernetically modified partner of Baron. Matilda fights using a gigantic spiked mace called the Iron Maiden.
As for the two multiplayer modes that have been detailed, these are Survival and Battle Royale. In the Survival mode, teams of up to 3 players will be forced to fight for survival against several waves of AI controlled enemies. The Battle Royale mode will have up to 8 players fighting with no limits against everyone else, with the amount of respawns and deaths determining the winner.
