Holy cow! Didn't see that coming! Gilgamesh, the King of Heroes, will be the Main Character's own Playable Servant along with the returning Servants.

Apparently everyone who made fanart or the such about him being a Servant to have, have reached Imageepoch. Honestly I wasn't expecting him to be a Secret Boss, not the Protagonist's Servant in this game.

This game just got 200x better!

Feels kinda odd to add a servant who has no connection with the 1st game.
Hopefully this time they would make the stories more diverse between servants, going through identical stories 4 times will be a pain.

Gilgamesh is Archer class =="
So in Fate/Extra CCC we have 2 Archer, 1 Saber and 1 Caster ==a
It's good to hear, but i want other class to be playable except Berserker

The magazine info wrote that Gil doesn't belong to any class, so he doesn't need to be Archer.

technically, if you go by the original Epic of GIlgamesh, he can be anything but a caster or assassin.

He used swords, lances, and bows (though he mostly solved problems with his fists)
There's no way he didn't have a horse, even if one was never explicitly mentioned (knowing Nasu, he'd have him ride the Bull of Heaven)
He went insane temporarily when Enkidu died, because he became aware of his own mortality.
He never used magic personally, though he fought a lot of magic users.
Even going by the loose rules towards Assassin class in the first game, he wouldn't qualify, as Gilgamesh in the myth liked to draw fights out so that they were more fun.

In the Nasuverse though Gil was an owner of Swords, not a Master (or something along those lines) so like Shirou he can't ever be a Saber class Servant even if he does have the "ability" to use Swords.

I see this board here so I just post.

Anyhow, which servant are you going to use once this is out?

he technically never uses a bow, so honestly it's just bs logic on Nasu's part.

His main method of attack is shooting pointy objects at people. I guess Nasu decided that was close enough. <_<
