Pit of War Updates Gladiators with Females and 6 New Races in January

San Francisco, CA - 30th January 2012 - Pit of War, the free to play browser based strategy gladiatorial combat MMORPG from Outcast Games, has announced two major updates in the month of January.

Pit of War ( http://www.pitofwar.com) has seen a major overhaul recently to the quality of slaves available for players to choose from and develop. All new female gladiators are now available, and these ladies are not messing around! These females are bringing both sex appeal and deadly strategies with them to the arena sands. While these females have no direct effect on a gladiator’s statistics or abilities, they do bring a visual WOW factor to a character avatar.

Additionally, and more recently, 6 brand new races have been added to the game, each with their own special abilities and hindrances. Adding to the existing race of Human, the game now has 6 additional races. The Elaar, The Spite, The Dunder, The Urk, The Snivler, and The Trug. These new races along with the 3 existing classes in the game will create many interesting combinations for players to use in an attempt to create the best gladiator in the land.

Along with these new additions come several tweaks to the games combat system:

-????????? Gladiators with a 2H weapon no longer have a chance to attack with their off-hand.

-????????? The skill Show Off has been buffed to remove more endurance from the opponent.

-????????? Hamstring now maxes out at 67%, down from 75%.

-????????? The chance Create Distance goes off against an opponent with a 2H weapon or Pole Arm has been decreased.

-????????? Fixed the Hamstring bug when a gladiator switched strategies right after the skill went off.

-????????? The damage on Bastard Swords has been reduced.

-????????? Defensive fighting styles got a small bump in the amount of defense they provide.
