Banshee Prime assails her foes by manipulating sonic forces to deadly effect. Featuring altered mod polarities for greater customization.

"These like-faced savages, these earth-worn mules, a vast violent ocean at our command. Yet they wither. Mired in massed steel and flesh, casting these hordes from gene molds and flock minds, we inspire nothing.

Our demons of void womb must be different. Unusual. Singular. Crafted without cast, wrought of the finest ore, slender and queer.

Sight without eye. Wrath without sound. Not a soldier, but a myth. Not a warrior... a spirit... Banshee."

Release date: 28 February 2017
