Deadliest Warrior – Ancient Combat Battle Of The Week – Final RoundApril 16, 2012
We’re only a few short days away from playing Deadliest Warrior: Ancient Combat, the retail compilation of Deadliest Warrior: The Game and Deadliest Warrior: Legends. Each week two of history’s greatest warriors have been battling to the death. In this final week, we’ve got the infamously insidious inspiration for Dracula; the Prince of Wallachia, Vlad the Impaler. He’s taking on the famed classical commander of North Africa, Hannibal. Both of these guys have fought against large opposing forces, but what will happen when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?
Vlad the Impaler – While Vlad the Impaler is far from the contemporary image of the blood drinking Dracula, that isn’t to say this 15th Century prince of Transylvania wasn’t a horrific human being. Vlad is infamous for his excessive cruelty with tens of thousands of people slaughtered at his command. This “Son of the Dragon” was known for his favorite mode of execution: impaling his victims alive upon stakes. He was an evil sadist, to be sure.
Hannibal – If Vlad was known as a brutal prince of his nation, Hannibal comes in as an invader of the larger Roman empire. Notable for leading war elephants over the Pyrenees and the Alps to invade northern Italy, Hannibal was an imposing force of the Western world. Known as one of history’s greatest military tacticians and strategists, he was a leader the world has rarely seen. Of course, in Deadliest Warrior it’s just him alone against a singular foe. Can this elephant of a man defeat the inspiration for Dracula?
