We’ve heard them; countless debates over whether Christmas has lost its meaning and become too commercial. It wouldn’t be Christmas without this argument popping up in some way or another.
So absolutely no surprise when we saw the latest update for Fight of Gods dive straight in at the deep end by including Santa Claus to the ever growing roster of characters… and yes that is a half naked, muscle-bound Santa you see staring intensely at the camera while pumping iron in the gym for the final 20 seconds of the trailer.
The reckless abandon the news was briefed out was pretty impressive too. Just read this:
“Forget logs on the fire and gifts on the tree: it’s a Silent Night, Holy Fight in the North Pole, as Santa and his elves duel with Jesus Christ. Will Kris Kringle force a prickly crown of holly onto Jesus’ head? Or will the Son of God thrust a deadly punishment fist straight into Santa’s bulging sack?”
… Yeah you read that right. Absolutely mental!
Well, I suppose the argument can finally be settled in Fight of Gods. With the Birthday boy versus the bringer of gifts anything could happen.
We are being promised that more characters are on the way and an online multiplayer update will be rolled out during Early Access too. For now, let’s just try to take in this trailer crudely featuring a line from Monty Python’s Life of Brian and enjoy the 33% discount available on Steam until 20th December.
