Along with the creation of the updated Scimitar class, we decided to create a couple of variants to this incredible Wabird: the Falchion and Tulwar classes. While each variant has its own costume, when you own all three, they grant some awesome customization of ship parts – this includes the upper and lower nacelles, the upper and lower stub-wings, the hull, and of course, the main wings themselves. On top of that, each of the three versions has a slightly different hull material to choose from.
Just like the movie, you can activate a special ability, and the wings will expand open as the power charges up – they will remain open for a short while after the power fires, and slowly fold back down. Adding ships with custom animation is never easy, nor quick, but a ship like this deserved that kind of attention, and I think you’re going to really enjoy it.
The Scimitar has been represented in our game since launch, but it was never a very high quality piece of game art, as it was never intended for players to use. The launch of Legacy of Romulus has allowed us to replace these old, non-player ships with brand new art that more closely matches what you are familiar with from the various series, and movies.
All three Romulan Dreadnought Warbirds are now available in the C-Store for individual sale (2500 ZEN) or as a 3-pack bundle (5000 ZEN).
See you in-game!
