Top-down MOBA and battle royale hybrid launching later today.
Reinventing the typical battle royale formula, Battlerite Royale is a MOBA and battle royale hybrid played in a top-down perspective, where players’ skill, map awareness, and serendipity are key to basking in the glory of triumph on the island.
Peter Ilves, Game Director at Stunlock Studios said:
“We’ve taken MOBA and battle royale and blended the best of both worlds to create something different and worthy of all MOBA fans. Featuring a third person perspective, unique combat, and MOBA elements, Battlerite Royale is a truly unique take on the BR genre. The Early Access version not only plays smoothly, but is already visually captivating, and so we look forward to players joining us on this journey in bringing Battlerite Royale to its complete release next year.”
In the game players skydive from the back of a wyvern and land on Talon Island to explore the lush and colourful surroundings, stumbling upon a variety of items and intriguing consumables such as barrel disques, rocket boots, and bear traps. During fast-paced, cutthroat matches players rely on vigilance and quick wits, utilizing treasured collectibles to overthrow opposing players, grab their loot, and ultimately be the last one standing.
The Early Access launch of Battlerite Royale features 20 different Champions to choose from, each with unique fighting styles, so even the most demanding players will find the right fit for their own play style. The signature Battlerite combat and input system is familiar for arena veterans, though all Champions have been revamped for Battlerite Royale.
Battlerite Royale launches on Steam Early Access today, priced at $19.99 / €19.99.
