Robocraft Royale is Transformers meets Fortnite with Abe Lincoln in a go-kart.
In Robocraft Royale you’ll be using all manner of different character-bots to battle players to the last in a huge (64km2) map littered with pick-ups, mountain observatories, power stations, forests, crashed spaceships and numerous different building configurations.
Robocraft Royale lovingly selects the the best crazy character-bots created over 5 years from the 13 million plus strong Robocraft community. Players hunt for the character-bot that best suits their style, navigate the hazards of this world, emerge victorious and claim their proverbial cheese and ham toastie.
Each time a player deploys into the world they’ll find new creations to master and learn how best to manipulate the destruction of their enemies with Robocraft Royale’s bespoke damage mechanics. The future development of the game is community led, with the plans currently including:
- Bringing the creative expression and user generated content of Robocraft to the Royale genre.
Continuing curating community built characters, leading to themed events around particular character types and styles.
Bringing players greater customisation from control styles to cosmetic.
Updating the map will with changing complexities that players must navigate to survive.
Allowing players to party up in team modes and take each other on.
Implementing spectator modes and kill cameras so that every angle of the action can be enjoyed.
Fostering a competitive scene and player skill with the crazy characters on offer.
Developer Freejam said of the decision to launch in Early Access:
“At the heart of our game development, we want the community involved so we can create the game together. Additionally, Robocraft Royale’s unique mixture of robots, cars, planes, and other vehicles presents unique challenges for creating an effective battle royale game. Finally, we want to take advantage of Robocraft’s unique construction system and building community to create a wide variety of vehicles. We plan for approximately three months in an early access state.”
You can purchase the Early Access version of Robocraft Royale on Steam now for £10.99 / €14.99 / $14.99. The developers have noted that as more content is added to the game the price will rise.
