A New Game Mode and Master in MXM! Natium Defense & Titus

 

A new game mode, Natium Defense, and new Master, Titus, was revealed via MXM’s official Twitch channel on September 8th.


The manager of MXM community, Deirdre “DD” Hollis, and the Brand Manager for MXM, Sean Orlikowski, introduced Titus and his skills, and demonstrated playing Natium Defense, a new PvE mode in MXM, as it was previously told.


The new Master, Titus, is a tanky support with high HP, unlike other ordinary support Masters. Titus’s skill sets were comprised of mostly healing and team buff skills, which makes it hard for Titus to score a kill or deal damage himself, although he is extremely effective in protecting and supporting allies.


Notably, his ult, ‘Divine Intervention,’ leaves a mark on allies in a wide area and revives the dead ones if the marks are still there, which will have a huge impact on the team during the teamfights. The Nodes used for Titus were mostly Cooldown Reduction since supporting allies by using skills is one of his crucial roles.


The viewers got the chance to peek at Titus’ two skins, Vicar Titus and Wasteland Titus, of which the in-game model and the illustration could be seen on the stream.

Natium Defense is a PvE challenge game mode with five people playing as a team. Natium Defense can only be played with the Nightmare difficulty level, and the main goal of the game is to survive 30 waves of minions and kill the boss monster.


Players must use the environment, resources, and the Auxiliary Skills that can only be used in the Natium Defense mode to fight off the enemies that are constantly swarming to destroy the Natium. Teamwork is crucial here as the minion waves start from several places in the map, and enemies with various special abilities appear.


There are monsters that drop crystals upon death, which can be used to defend the Natium by rebuilding a destroyed tower or summoning a Guardian that fights for allies. It is also possible to eliminate all enemies on the map by consuming 3 crystals, thus it is important to use the crystals wisely.


The games ends once either the Natium is destroyed or the team manages to defend all 30 waves, and they will be given ranking and rewards based on the number of the waves cleared and the time.
