Awesomenauts will be released on PC next week, bringing with it a brand new character and some Halloween content. The new character, Raelynn, relies on her faithful pulse rifle, Cuddles, to deal out the bulk of her damage. Her special abilities include deployable cover and what sounds like a pretty devastating sniper shot. According to her description, the snipe ability is "able to zap any target over great distances, the resulting beam will take out most of the surroundings along with the target." Ouch.
1.8 also includes new Halloween content, which will redecorate the Awesomenauts arenas with spider webs and Jack-o'-lanterns. Spooky.
