The Camelot Unchained team is readying itself to ramp up information about the game currently in development. With the recently published developer diary revealing the Helbound, we managed to catch up to Mark Jacobs to find out even more. Read on and then leave us your impressions in the comments.
MMORPG: How does this class tie into the Viking faction? We know Hel is a Norse God, but definitely not tied to Vahalla. Will this class be more of an outcast?
Mark Jacobs: Hel’s role in traditional Viking lore is a bit problematic as it is not as clear cut as someone like Odin. In our version, she has as big a role in the Viking realm as do the other Greater Powers here and in the other realms.

However, there is no doubt that the HelBound want to convey a message of “Danger Will Robinson! Danger!” through their appearance.
