The Death Knight becomes a Legendary Champion!
08/22/2022 - Plarium today announced that the popular character "Death Knight" will finally make his debut as a Legendary Champion in the mobile collectible RPG RAID: Shadow Legends. The "Ultimate Death Knight" will be available to all players as part of a two-month in-game loyalty event from August 25 to October 27, 2022.
Since the launch of Raid in 2018, Death Knight has become one of RAID's most recognizable faces, amassing a huge fan club for his witty, positive attitude and relentless efforts to finally become a strong hero. He also played a leading role in many viral commercials of RAID, such as the 2nd and 3rd anniversary of the game, "RPG Life Training", "Therapy" and "DK Dreams Big" clips. Now it's time for him to finally get his well-deserved spot in the limelight.
"Fans have liked Death Knight since the beginning, so we're thrilled to fulfill the desire of many players for a Legendary version of Death Knight," said Nick Day, Plarium's Chief Creative Officer ."To all the fans who have been loyal to the original Death Knight, leveling him up to 6 stars and always adding him to their team, even if it makes it significantly weaker: This Ultimate Death Knight is for you. We (and the original Death Knight) appreciate your support and dedication."
The Ultimate Death Knight event will, of course, be presented by none other than.... The original Death Knight himself! In addition to the Ultimate Death Knight, Plarium has brought Death Knight to life for the RAID community - and promotional campaigns - using state-of-the-art motion capture technology with real-time rendering. Players could follow the skeleton in person on Facebook and Twitter at @OGDeathknight, from the first look at the new champion to commentary on the ongoing campaign and live appearances by well-known streamers and creators over the following months.
