  • Battlerite: Battle Royale Mode Announced

    Battlerite: Battle Royale
    What do you get when even an "action MOBA/arena brawler" jumps onto the battle royale bandwagon? You apparently get the Battlerite: Battle Royale mode that was just announced today. This new mode is slated to arrive this Summer and will combine its action MOBA roots/arena brawler gameplay with battle royale gameplay. It will feature gameplay on a map that is "30 times larger than the standard arena mode map" with up to 20 players.
    “With a top-down Battle Royale mode we’ve set out to bring the ultimate survival experience to Action RPG and MOBA players.” said Johan Ilves, Marketing Director at Stunlock Studios. “We want to give players the excitement of a Diablo-esque exploration experience combined with the character variation of a MOBA and the thrill of a survival game. That said, I think anyone who’s looking for a fresh and different take on the Battle Royale genre will have a blast.”

    Battlerite Royale is played in a top-down perspective using WASD controls and victory depends on factors such as players’ skill, map awareness, situational builds, and a sliver of luck. During fast-paced 10-minute matches players explore the map in order to find a variety of items, fight other players to grab their loot, and, ultimately, be the last one standing on the island. There are 27 unique Champions to choose from that offer a robust mix of roles: ranged, melee, and support. Every champion plays differently and mastering their abilities is the key to survive on the island, which makes Battlerite Royale stand out from similar titles.

    Battlerite is a free-to-play game available through Steam that features optional in-app purchases. Heroes go through rotations but you can permanently unlock your favorite heroes using either in-game currency that you can earn or via those in-app purchases I mentioned.
