In celebrating the announcement Airship revealed two new tracks from the game by Jesper Kyd and one from Clark Powell. Listen below.

A new character design by Joe Madureira which was teased a few posts ago has been revealed. Say hello to the Master Enchanter! She can be contacted to craft enchantments for your characters.



Reguarding the highly anticipated Battle Chasers: Nightwar Alpha and Beta release Airship Syndicate had this to say.
...we have the content rocking along and are working diligently on stability and tightening some things up. As soon as we're comfortable with the quality there, we'll push out alpha, and then beta.


To close the post here are the latest gameplay animated gifs. Can't wait for this to drop later this spring.

Happy 2017!

I know it's been a while since I've updated but I just had to post this evening since Joe Madureira has a new variant cover out today! It's for DC's Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #3!

There's also been some new Battle Chasers: Nightwar artwork popping up like a character design for the 'Demon Hunter' and two epic splash pages.

A really cool Captain America: Steve Rogers variant cover came out as well, probably one of my favourite Joe Mad! cap drawings.

Joe did up a fan art piece for the indie game Darkest Dungeon.

He's a hidden gem found in the Blizzard card game Hearthstone. Joe did a design for a character named Price Malchezaar.

Along with Joe Mad!'s variant cover for Justice League of America #06 one lucky fan received a one-of-a-kind Harley Quinn sketch variant cover! I would LOVE this for my Joe Mad collection *wink* *wink*.

DC came out with a reboot of Justice League called Rebirth and Joe did up a variant cover featuring Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. He also posted a few concept sketches before revealing the final piece.

That's all for now! I hope you enjoyed the post. I'll try and regularly update the site this year if Joe continues drawing variant covers and who knows...maybe 2017 is the year we will finally see Battle Chasers #10!
