News: Shade is a very mysterious and vengeful man. Find out what his true purpose is on July 3rd when Scourge Outbreak hits XBLA.
Scourge Outbreak is going to hit Xbox Live on July 3. Earlier today a new character was revealed by the name o Ramiro “Shade” Cortez. An Argentinian hit-man with a mysterious past, not much is known about Ramiro "Shade" Cortez. After years of searching, rumors have surfaced that his long-time kidnapped sister is still alive and under Nogari control. Dismissive of payment when offered to join Echo Squad, his only concern is the Nogari Corporation's destruction-and fast. With "the only good Nogari soldier is a dead Nogari soldier" mentality, Shade will take no prisoners in his path for revenge.
As Shade has no recorded military training and refuses to divulge personal information, it's unknown where he acquired his expertise. However, Shade's honed assassin skills have proven useful to Echo Squad operations on countless occasions. Not only is his accuracy unmatched in Echo Squad's ranks, he has the quickest aim and weapon switching for deadly fast precision. Furthermore, Shade can sprint longer than the others, and recharge his stamina faster. When Shade's skills are combined with his Ambrosia Suit abilities, Shade is nearly unstoppable. His Static Shield remains stationary when deployed, allowing Shade to execute long-range shots from safety with supreme accuracy. Foes attempting to close distance with Shade are easily stopped with his Dynamic Shockwave -- it's perfect for intercepting charging enemies before they can get close.
