The TREK Ion Blade & Melee Combat System are coming to ORION: Dino Horde on Steam via the (free) Desert DLC Pack on Wednesday, August 21. Included are two duel variant game modes.

Posted by on

We are super proud to announce the oldest weapon in the ORION IP. This was the first weapon ever designed back in the late 90's and is (finally) making it into a public ORION game.

DESIGN & THEORY

This is the TREK ION Blade and in short it is a magnetic, energetic, retractable Katana.

FEATURES

With the addition of this (new, best, amazing) weapon we are also introducing a full-blown Melee Combat System which will feature:

  • Light Attacks
  • Heavy Attacks
  • Finishing Moves
  • Combos
  • Deflects
  • Blocks
  • Counters

HOMAGE & INSPIRATION

This weapon was heavily inspired by my chronic amounts of time with the Jedi Knight (Dark Forces, Dark Forces 2, Mysteries of the Sith then its later sequels: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy) series early on in my earlier days. More on that here for those interested.
Fans of games such as Mount & Blade, Chivalry and Pirates, Vikings and Knights will feel right at home and thoroughly enjoy the new Duel and FFA Duel game modes.

Atleast some animations are improving.

Unfortunately a few animations won't make up for a horrible game.

Your trailers always look so fun, but with the amount of **** I've heard about Orion I'm still very sceptical.

Starting tomorrow (Aug 19) you can load it up for free and determine that for yourself ;)

(spoiler: it's a lot fun).

*Note: Check back on August 21 (Wednesday) for all this new Melee Combat / Sabre stuff via the (free) Desert Update.
