Yet, with its easy to play but hard to master class-based characters, and hundreds of possible ability combos available in cooperative team play, Slugterra is also the perfect addition for operators who are looking to add eSports tournaments to their location.
Players looking to dive into the meta of the game are sure to bring repeat play as they can choose from four different, class-based characters.
There’s Eli, the ‘All-Rounder’, with his combination of offensive fire and electrical slugs; Trixie, the ‘Tactician, whose slugs slow opponents down and penetrate through cover; Pronto, the ‘Rogue’, whose jetpack lets him move quickly while he smokes players with fart clouds or goos them with acidic slime; or Kord, the “Tank”, who moves more slowly, but can hammer his opponents with his Rammstone and Sticky Grenuke slugs.
On top of that, players can also explore the expansive and multilevel gamespace, using each slug’s special powers to gain the advantage against the other team to achieve victory!
