The Beast Pen
This fetid room will open a gateway to the deeper parts of the Underworld where the vicious Skarg and Oculus roam — allowing them to enter your dungeon and sleep within the cozy walls of the Beast Pen. Bent to your will, these minions will leave your halls to sink their teeth and claws into the exposed flesh of your enemies.
The wicked Bafu is a creature of unimaginable horror the hails from a dark and evil place. Within the unlit depths that it calls home it has learned to hunt without eyes, and uses sound to pinpoint its victim’s location before impaling them with a vicious spines launched from its tail. While under your command the Bafu will gladly drag unconscious enemies to your own Prison, ready for you to do with them as you will.
Its abilities include dragging unconscious enemies to your jail, screeching to deafen enemies slowing them down, and firing a volley of barbs from its tail. Meanwhile the Oculus has been sent back to the drawing board as it gets a new look. Check out the fullupdate for more.
War for the Overworld releases on PC later in 2013.
