Say hi to Scourge: Outbreak’s Amp

A mercenary with ties to the mafia, Amp is as fast as she is deadly.

Combining rogue-like agility with the control of an assassin, Amp’s strength lies in her cunning abilities and supreme endurance. Her sleek physique is tuned for speed and tactility, so she’s fairly effective in hand-to-hand combat. She’s also one of the team’s finest at handling recoil, granting her deadly force when using the Firefly weapon. Offering range and support, her Ambrosia Suit’s large Dynamic Shield is excellent for protecting allies while advancing under fire. Although her Dynamic Shockwave isn’t Echo Squad’s most powerful, it maintains the furthest range, making it exceptional for killing enemies behind cover.

So, so far we’ve seen the tank and the ranged/speediest members of Echo Squad- two of the basic character types that every squad based title absolutely has to have on its roster. If I had to hazard a guess, I’d say that we’re looking at the ‘stealth’ character next in these little bio’s followed by the all-around solid member of the team.

UFO Interactive’s Scourge: Outbreak is looking pretty sharp in this relatively early going though, all kidding about character types aside. The team based shooter genre has been on a bit of a rebound as of late and Scourge look like it’ll be more than up to the task of keeping that ball rolling.

Look for it on Xbox Live just in time for that 4th of July Holiday- July 3rd. Scourge: Outbreak will cost you 400 MS points.
