This is it folks, the last of the Awesomenauts character reveal trailers. Frankly, I've been enjoying these far too much just because of the theme tune at the end. Amazing stuff.
Voltar the Omniscient is today's focus, a "mysterious brain-in-a-vat." Apparently, over 500 years ago Voltar was a brilliant scientist who got caught in an explosion at an intergalactic power station. It destroyed nearly his entire body, leaving only his massive brain intact – a brain that was subsequently shoved in a tank, preserving it for all time.
That braintank has now been modified and Voltar is a bit of a badass. With an army of robot drones at his side and unmatched psychotechnic powers, this mysterious figure is getting stuck right in to the robot wars as the last of the current crop of Awesomenauts. Fear not though, more are promised down the line.
Here's the character reveal trailer and a gameplay vid.
